Our Beautiful School

Gerald the Giraffe welcomes every child into the school when they arrive each morning. Built and decorated by the pupils, he has become a much-loved mascot of The Village Pre-Prep. The girls have had several stories about giraffes in assembly and thought that Gerald should have a friend, hence Jenny arrived. Jenny is special in that any pupil can borrow her as a comforter, so she often goes ‘on tour’!

Being part of a bigger school means that girls benefit from all the wonderful facilities and resources at The Village Prep:

  • A large hall (used as well equipped theatre with raked seating, indoor sports hall, assembly hall and dining area)
  • A library
  • A music room
  • A full-sized netball court
  • Interactive whiteboards
  • A large grassed area with environmentally friendly climbing and play apparatus
  • An outside classroom (part of our award-winning Green Flag certification)
  • Fruits trees and herb gardens
  • A first aid room

In addition, there are a number of specialist teachers on-site for sport, music, Spanish, ballet and gymnastics who provide the girls with expert tutoring from their first days at school.


The school is now closed until the beginning of September for its summer break.
