Welcome from the Prep Head
May I offer an extremely warm welcome from Cheltenham Prep.
Every child deserves their schooldays to be magical; something to be loved at the time and remembered fondly for years to come. It is not enough that schools simply prepare the children for the challenges that lie ahead. This is vitally important, of course, but it comes as a result of happy, engaged and challenged children throwing themselves into all that every day has to offer. Our job, as educators, is to inspire the children, to bring excitement and intrigue into every lesson. Having amazing facilities is wonderful, but it is the teacher in the classroom who can engage and motivate each child that really makes the difference. Everybody remembers the impact one particular teacher had on them, the influence that inspirational teacher has had, often, over their whole life. And that is what life at Cheltenham Prep is all about!
Life here is always interesting. Every day children have the opportunity to indulge new passions and interests, finding what they are brilliant at, and to learn how to overcome challenges, both inside and outside of the classroom. As a result, every child not only fulfils their potential but actually achieves above and beyond anything they ever thought they were capable of. We are lucky to have the facilities, small classes and resources that we do, but in the end it still comes down to the inspirational staff here, ensuring that your child receives an extraordinary education that will challenge them greatly but will also put a smile on their face and give them a million things to talk about when they get home.
I very much look forward to welcoming you to The Prep.
With very best wishes,
Head, Cheltenham Prep
