Where the journey begins

Pre Prep is where the St Faith’s journey of exploring, learning and developing begins.

Located in it’s a dedicated area of the school site, with its talented staff, own timetable, assemblies, play times and entrance, Southfield is the joyful home of our children aged 4-7 years.  

Learning and play is encouraged outdoors, as well as within the classrooms. Foundation and Year 1 classrooms open to let the outdoors in, and bespoke outdoor areas ensure fresh air learning whatever the weather. ‘The Wild Place’ gives children the opportunity to explore, create, take risks, collaborate and learn about the natural world. 

Southfield is home of the Pre Prep but even our youngest pupils make use of the extensive grounds and facilities, with lessons and specialist teaching taking place in Ashburton Hall, the Sports Hall, Computing suites, Music rooms and the Library. 

Happy children thrive; our role is to ensure that children enjoy each and every day they spend with us. 

Please come and see for yourself; we will be delighted to show you around!

Head of Pre Prep
