Structure of the School

Warwick Prep is split into two parts - the Pre-Prep and the Prep Departments. The Pre-Prep is for girls and boys aged between 3 and 7.  The Prep is for girls aged between 7 and 11.

The usual joining points are into Nursery at 3+ (about 60 new children), into Reception at 4+ (about 20 new children), into Year 3 (about 10 new girls) and into Year 5 (about 10 new girls).  There are sometimes spaces available in other year groups.  Please contact the Admissions Department regarding availability.

Pre-Prep (Boys and girls from 3+)

We have three Nursery classes and four classes in each Pre-Prep year. Classes are limited to a usual maximum of 20 children and are broadly balanced between boys and girls. Each Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 class has a full-time form teacher and teaching assistant.

Prep (Girls from 7+)

In the Prep Department, there may be 2 or 3 forms in each year group. Class sizes are usually capped at 24 pupils. In each Year 3 class, pupils are supported by a full-time Teaching Assistant. English is taught in mixed-ability groups throughout the department and Mathematics is taught in ability groups from Year 5 onwards. All pupils receive specialist taught subjects in Music, Art, DT, Computing, MFL, PE, and Science.
