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

Headmasters Welcome

Welcome to the Prenton Preparatory School website. Our intention is to provide both current and prospective pupils and parents with information regarding the many aspects of school life and the opportunities we can offer every child. I hope you will enjoy learning about us and find your visit to our website interesting and informative, encouraging you to visit us and experience the vibrant and friendly atmosphere of our school.

Prenton Prep. School is a day preparatory school catering for boys and girls aged 2½ – 11 years. We are an inclusive, co-educational school welcoming all children of all abilities, backgrounds and cultures. There is no formal entrance examination, instead prospective pupils are invited for a day’s visit and during the day, staff will assess the level at which the visiting child is currently working.

Year 4 had a busy morning cleaning some muddy, dirty rubber ducks 🦆
After we read “How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth”, we decided to use our own imperative verbs to clean the ducks.
The children soaked, rinsed, lathered, cleansed, scoured, dried, buffed, polished their muddy rubber ducks until they were gorgeous again!
Thank you for your hard work, children.
