St Margaret's Prep is a thriving independent day school for boys and girls aged 3-11, sharing a 28-acre campus with St Mary's Calne. We moved to our current premises in 1940 and have gradually grown to what we are today – a happy and vibrant school of 180 pupils with broadly equal numbers of boys and girls.

At St Margaret’s, we believe our duty is to prepare the children in our care to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world; to equip them with the life skills and attributes that will allow them to flourish in their senior schools and beyond.
We offer a holistic and balanced education, with strong values at its heart. These values provide a framework for our children as they interact with one another, experiencing the challenges and achievements of their educational journey with us. Our aim of ‘Inspiring Excellence’ is central to our commitment to ensure that each pupil aspires to fulfil his or her potential.

We aim to instil a positive sense of self in each pupil and a drive to be the best that they can be in all respects. Our philosophy is underpinned by the belief that children thrive when they are happy, stimulated and encouraged.

Education at St Margaret’s is not just about academic rigour, it’s also about respect and understanding for each other and giving our pupils the tools to understand themselves. Throughout their time at school we see our children grow in independence, self-esteem and confidence as they learn key ‘soft skills’. We all work towards ensuring that firm foundations are laid before the children move on to senior school and face the challenges that the workplace and wider world will present in the future.

Through embracing our shared school values, we create an atmosphere which gives our children the confidence to achieve their best in a supportive and engaging environment.

Visitors are welcome throughout the year. Please contact Mrs Simone Hughes to make an appointment: 01249 857379 or email admissions@stmargaretsprep.org.uk
