Head PhotoLoyola Preparatory School is a long established school educating boys for over a century, originally as part of St Ignatius College. As a caring Catholic School it welcomes boys of all denominations offering a weekly mass to celebrate faith, ethos and values.

As a boy's only school, Loyola focuses its teaching techniques to harness the attention of boys by applying the extensive studies made into 'the ways boys learn best'. These practices encourage greater stimulation and enjoyment which is demonstrated by their overall behaviour and results.

Loyola has a high teacher to pupil ratio, facilitated by enthusiastic and committed teachers, supported by a generous quota of quality teaching assistants.

Loyola boys are encouraged to be kind and respect each other, with the older boys acting as role models for the younger boys. Year 6 boys are given "Prefect" responsibilities as well as the opportunity to be elected to the position of "Head Boy" and "Deputy Head Boy". All boys regularly take part in community events including fund raising for national and local charities.

Loyola supports their boy's progression for the next step in their learning journey by preparing them for entrance and scholarship exams with English and Maths being taught in small ability sets from year 3 upwards.

The curriculum covers all the normal primary subjects and includes German, science and computer studies. There are schola, choir and orchestra opportunities available in school, with additional tuition for piano, strings, woodwind, brass and guitar.

Loyola is proud of its range of sporting activities for the boys, aided by a large all weather pitch onsite. Sporting activities include soccer, cricket, rugby, swimming, athletics and sailing (year 6) of which many are available during the school day and others offered as an after school club.

During their time at the school, Loyola boys experience a wide range of trips and activities including a 5 day trip to Normandy (year 6),a 3 day trip to Kingswood in Norfolk (year 4), together with many day trips across the school years selected to stimulate and enrich their learning experience.

The school prospectus is available on the school website and prospective parents are welcome to telephone for an appointment to be given a personal tour of the school.

The school prospectus is contained within its website. Parents are welcome to telephone to arrange tours of the school.
