Lower School

Rookwood Independent Prep School

The Prep School is a vibrant, nurturing and busy school that encourages pupils to thrive in an atmosphere that is caring, ambitious and fun. Through a child-centred approach to learning and a dedicated team of staff, all pupils achieve their best while developing a passion to discover and learn.

  • Upon entering our independent school you will be welcomed by confident, respectful and thoughtful pupils and feel our warm family ethos.
  • At the heart of what we do is our focus on pastoral care.
  • Through our nurturing approach, all pupils feel that they have the support and encouragement to aspire to fulfil their ambitions and self-made targets.

Why Rookwood Private School?

Pupils experience a broad and balanced curriculum and a wide range of extra-curricular activities that help them to develop their skills and interests. Our ambition within the Lower School is to develop young people with a passion for learning who are able to work both collaboratively and independently. We do this by providing a creative and supportive environment that allows them to stretch themselves and take risks.

Our pupils are kept extremely busy during their time in the Lower School through a multitude of experiences including:

  • Residential trips
  • School productions
  • LAMDA examinations
  • Tea Concerts
  • Weekly fixtures against local prep schools
  • Community and charity projects

Our independent Prep School offers so much more than just an education. I would be delighted to welcome you and your child to experience our warm and inspiring atmosphere for yourselves.
