The Prep School Journey


At Glebe, life is bustling with countless opportunities.

At the Prep School, our commitment is to nurture confident, happy, and ambitious individuals. We empower our pupils to express themselves, communicate effectively, and build self-esteem through a strong work ethic and a willingness to embrace challenges.

Developing Talent

As they progress through the school, students become more independent, working as a team in class, play, and their house groups. With small class sizes, our dedicated teachers provide personalised support, pastoral care, and effective communication with parents.

Our curriculum goes beyond the National Curriculum, preparing students for the Common Entrance Syllabus and opening doors to scholarships at Independent Senior Schools.


Our uniform is smart, just like our children! Available to order online and with a lot of it from high street shops, we look distinctive, well-dressed and well-presented in lessons both in and out of the classroom.


Discovery and Aspiration

Our curriculum sets us apart by preparing students for a smooth transition to the state sector at 13, equipped with confidence, self-awareness, and a strong grasp of their individual learning styles. In addition to core subjects, our pupils explore French and have opportunities to engage in other European languages through after-school activities.

Specialist teachers guide them in Music, Art/DT, and Computing. Talented students can pursue academic, sport, and art scholarships. As they progress through the senior years, students assume roles of responsibility, enabling personal growth and teamwork.

Our Prep School pupils have the self-belief that their individual talents and abilities can be developed through a positive outlook, effort and perseverance.

The Leavers Programme

Our unique Leavers’ Programme embraces the spirit of adventure with captivating local and international explorations, heartfelt charity initiatives, an invigorating 25-mile walk, and an unforgettable formal dinner, culminating in a remarkable celebration of their transformative journey at Glebe House School.
