Welcome

 

A very warm welcome to Wilmslow Preparatory School, an outstanding independent day school for boys and girls aged 3-11.

In 1909, the aim of our founders was to provide children with an excellent, well-rounded education that would lay firm foundations for life. Whilst over a hundred years may have changed our world beyond recognition, we have held onto that aim, as well as continuously being dynamic and forward thinking. As in 1909, our pupils still leave us as capable and self-fulfilled individuals, with a love of learning and a strong moral purpose, having experienced the very best possible start to their young lives.

Development of the whole child is our goal, achieved through excellent academic provision, an all-round exciting curriculum delivered by inspiring, motivational and caring teachers ensuring that each child fulfils his/her individual potential. More than anything, we want exactly what you as a parent want for your child – for them to be happy, because only when they are happy at school will they achieve all that they are capable of. Here at WPS, we get to the essence of what being happy for a child means.

We provide an innovative and inspiring start to our pupils’ education through our unique educational programme, the WPS Pathway, which results in the best possible outcomes for your child. This consistently successful approach produces pupils who have lively and enquiring minds, achieve excellent academic standards, and fulfil their own individual potential. Consequently, pupils leave us as compassionate individuals with a lifelong love of learning, and a true understanding of the world around them.

Our dedicated team of form teachers, specialists and assistants deliver a broad and dynamic curriculum that is focused and tailored to your child in a way that can only happen in a small nurturing school, where every member of staff knows and understands each pupil. We have high expectations of your child, whilst recognising that each individual has their own unique strengths which are celebrated so that all pupils feel truly valued.

We place emphasis on the arts, sports and charitable work, and provide opportunities for children to be involved in a wide range of exciting and creative opportunities. Within our superb pastoral care, pupils feel safe to challenge themselves and each other, ensuring that every child recognises their individuality and their own self-worth.

Located in the heart of Wilmslow, the School plays a valuable role in our community and our site is in an ideal position for you as parents, with Wilmslow’s excellent transport links on our doorstep. In addition, our purpose-built school provides highly effective facilities for our pupils so that our resources are channelled into educating your child.

Everything we do is aimed at providing your child with the best possible start to their journey through life.

To appreciate all that our fabulous school has to offer, please do come and visit us – only then will you appreciate what makes us unique!
