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.

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.

Phased School Reopening

From Monday 1st June 2020

We are now welcoming back pupils in our Pre-School (F1), Kindergarten (F2), Year 1 and Year 6 classes. Other classes are continuing to work remotely at home.

We remain open for children of key workers, as detailed by the government. However if you are at all able to keep your child safely at home then the latest advice is that this should be the case. Work has been provided for all pupils.

December is here and "It's Beginning to Look (and sound) a Lot Like Christmas" at PPS.
Year 6 did a great job of decorating our Christmas Tree and the sounds of rehearsals for our (soon to be recorded) Christmas productions are making even an old scrooge like the Headteacher feel festive!

Yesterday our Head Boy and Head Girl went to Church Farm in Thurstaston to choose our Christmas tree and help cut it down. They chose the biggest one they could find that would fit in the minibus!! Then they brought it back to school and helped put it up. Year 6 can't wait to decorate it now!
