Welcome to Prenton Preparatory School

Prenton Prep is an independent co-educational school founded in Prenton in 1935. It moved to its present site in Oxton in 1974. Nestling in the heart of Oxton’s conservation area, the charming sandstone building, stands in attractive mature gardens. These secure surroundings provide a large playground and lawned area for the pupils.

Well known for its friendly ‘family’ atmosphere, Prenton Prep maintains a sound traditional approach to education and behaviour whilst daily reinforcing social skills, mutual respect and consideration for others.

The Headteacher is a member of the Independent Schools Association (ISA), a regulating body through which the school gains many advantages such as regular inspections, up to date educational practice and advice as well as cultural and sporting fixtures both at local and national level.

Mr M T R Jones

We were very proud of our team who all competed well and represented the school excellently. Across the competition there was some fantastic football played and everyone seemed to enjoy their day very much. Well done to Forest Park (3rd place), The Grange (2nd Place) and especially Carleton House who won the trophy for the first time since 1999. ... See MoreSee Less

Our U9 football team had a very successful day at Queen Ethelburga's School in York yesterday, winning the Bowl competition in the ISA North of England tournament. The team played four games in the first round scoring some lovely goals to progress through in to the Bowl. They then won all of their games in the Bowl and visibly gelled as a team and we were very proud as our captain collected the trophy. A great day was had by all and the behaviour and attitude of the whole squad was exemplary. Well done everyone and thanks to Mrs. Hughes and, team manager, Mr. Wilson for taking them. ...
