This is us. Excited, curious, funny, thoughtful and bursting with imagination. Ready for the magic that’s waiting for us, somewhere, every single day. We are KC Prep. There are adventures and stories and lessons to be found here and we always find them. We act with kindness, care and consideration. We explore forests and ideas. Play sports, make choices, make messes. Schools aren’t their buildings or grounds or uniforms. Schools are worlds created by the minds of their pupils and this school is us.
Our ethos of outdoor learning as an essential part of our curriculum really sets us apart. Being outdoors provides a bridge between formal and informal learning, equipping the children with the skills they need to face uncertainty and change with courage and confidence.
A rich programme of extracurricular activities discovers new talents, nurtures those that already exist and provides the perfect balance with our broad curriculum to create well-rounded children.
"A school that gives pupils time and space to develop to their best ability within a tight knit community. Bubbling with compassion." Good Schools Guide 2023
