The Nicholas Owen Block is our colourful and vibrant Pre-Prep department where every boy matters. The walls in the bright and airy classrooms are covered with the boys’ own work, of which they are all very proud. Each classroom has a full-time teacher and a support teacher, ensuring every boy has one to one time to further their learning every day.
Each day is busy and fun-filled with the boys being taught a wide range of academic subjects, which include weekly drama and music lessons taught by subject specialist teachers. Staff to pupil ratios are kept deliberately low to ensure the highest possible quality of provision is offered to our boys at such an important stage in their education.
