Welcome from the Head of Prep
Welcome to the new academic year at the Prep School. It’s a busy and exciting time for us and we can’t wait to get to know you all. I know our current pupils are also very much looking forward to welcoming their new classmates.
This handbook provides lots of key information for families as well as details about the academic and pastoral aspects of school life. It is fantastic to be able to plan for a more ‘normal’ year as covid measures have eased but do do keep an eye on our Friday mailings which provide any updates should the situation change.
Another good source of information are our Form Reps. Each class has a Form Rep who acts as a conduit between parents and the School, as well as welcoming new families and arranging social events. Do take the time to chat to other parents at drop off and pick up times, we are a very welcoming and warm community. Events such as concerts, book shares or plays also provide plenty of further opportunities to build friendships with other parents and guardians.
While Headington Prep is an academically selective school with a broad, progressive and stimulating curriculum, above all it is a fabulous place to learn, full of happy and inquisitive learners who embrace a challenge. I’d have loved to have been a pupil here; it’s great fun and it helps prepare the pupils to be future ready - ready for the Senior School and life beyond.
Enjoy learning more about all that is on offer and if there is anything you are unsure about, please don’t hesitate to ask. Perhaps you might want to start by sharing a few chapters with your daughter - the activities programme is a good place to start.
I look forward to seeing you and your daughters in September! Best wishes Jane Crouch Head of the Prep School
