Introduction

Pre Prep 10

In their first years at The Downs children join the Pre-Prep, an independent department with its own Head teacher Miss Heather Fulton. The department is designed for the younger children, cheerful, purpose built classrooms overlooking the extensive Pre-Prep Playing Field nestled in the Somerset county side.

This is a particularly happy and caring setting where children are encouraged to learn in a safe and secure atmosphere. The unique rural environment encourages imaginative and purposeful play, where children can have direct access to the large and varied school grounds. Taking advantage of the fields and woods that surround the school, children are introduced to the thrills and excitement of discovery, both inside and outside the classroom.

We spend time to get to know our children and families before they join us, working closely with parents to provide a happy start to school life.
