Buckingham Preparatory School is a selective, independent school for boys aged 2 - 11years. The Buckingham Preparatory Nursery also caters for girls between the ages of 2 - 4 years.
Our school has a pastoral care system second to none. We have a strict class size maximum limit of 19 pupils per class to ensure every child will receive the individual attention and focus they need to succeed. We tailor our curriculum to best suit each child’s personality and needs.
Our emphasis on the individual extends to all aspect of our school life and community. We have a breadth of experience that respects and encourages the wide range of religious beliefs and dietary variations within the school to exist both in their own right, and encompassed within the broader school community. School meals are prepared freshly every day on the premises, which enables us to deliver tasty and wholesome lunches, catering for any specific dietary needs as required, and our meals are provided without additional charge.
We believe that school life is not simply 8.30 till 4, but is an all-encompassing part of a child’s life. We run before school breakfast clubs and after school fun clubs, together with homework clubs, sports clubs, music clubs many of these are free of charge.
We have a residential trip every year for every child in Prep, where fun, education, teamwork and friendship are top of the agenda. Last year we had a night at the Science Museum and a weeks residential for our Year 6 boys to Plas Menai watersports centre in North Wales.
We have an active Parent Teacher Association where parents who wish to can involve themselves in the wider aspects of the school. We also run social events for parents and children throughout the year.
Our overriding policy is one of listening and sharing. Parents are encouraged to meet with the Headteacher whenever they wish, to ensure a full and open dialogue. The Headteacher is an active member of the school as well as its leader and will be found greeting the boys at the school gate every morning, come rain or shine. We treat our school community as a large, well-managed, well educated, respectful and encouraging family.
