Welcome to The Ursuline Preparatory School
Choosing your child's first school is an important part of the parent's responsibility, choosing an independent school is another part of the process. At The Ursuline Preparatory School we pride ourselves on being, first and foremost a friendly, family school. Our aim is to ensure that all children are given the opportunity of the best possible start to their educational career. To this end the majority of the children who are educated at The Ursuline Preparatory School being in our Nursery.
Every girl is encouraged to achieve her personal best in the classroom, but she is also encouraged to achieve in other aspects of school life too. All the pupils in our non-selective school enjoy the benefits of our large site with its top class facilities inclduing the Science Laboratory, Modern Foreign Languages room, Information Technology, Performing Arts and Design Art Studio, Music Practice Rooms and a floodlit Astro Court.
Alongside the academic rigour The Ursuline Preparatory School provides, I believe the girls benefit from the broad curriculum on offer; allowing pupils to participate and achieve in sporting activities, develop their information technology skills, drama performance and art and design. In addition there is a plethora of extra-curricular activities girls can participate in either before school, at lunchtime and after school. The well attending After School Care Scheme is available for all pupils until 5.45pm.
Our children and staff share a real sense of purpose in following the pioneering principles of our Foundress, St Angela Merici. In keeping with our motto, Serviam we seek to show care, concern and consideration for others and to foster a spirit of community.
Looking through the words and pictures of our web-site gives you a good impression of the school, but it is no substitute for a visit to see us as a working school. Please do feel free to telephone the school to arrange a visit. You will be guaranteed a warm welcome, and we look forward to meeting you.
