Stepping up to Prep School

Westbourne is underpinned by a deeply nurturing ethos, ensuring that each child feels confident to reach their full potential and to flourish as an individual. We strive to provide our pupils with the best possible start in life.

Little Westbourne nursery children benefit from regular visits to Westbourne Prep School to ease their transition into Reception and to allow them to meet and mix with older Prep children, both growing their confidence and offering them an experience of Prep School life.

Our Early Years Coordinator, Mrs Edwards works closely with our Nursery and Reception teams to ensure the lead up to the start of school is as natural a transition as possible. With regular visits, Reception-level activities and fun tasks to encourage a sense of excitement about the Prep journey ahead!

Our Little Westbourne families also benefit from exclusive access to our Stepping Up to School offer, designed to ease the financial pressure during the early years of independent education.

We understand that selecting the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We welcome tours of our Prep School and facilities year-round and invite you to experience the school’s uniquely welcoming atmosphere for yourself.

"I always thought this school would be good, I hoped that this school would be great, but I didn't expect this school to be incredible." Westbourne Prep Parent
"Far beyond just small class sizes, the supportive, nurturing environment is committed to understanding and embracing the character and strengths of each and every child, developing independent self-starters with entrepreneurial drive, academic breadth and the self-confidence to succeed." Joanne Chinnock, Head of Prep
