Mrs Jacky Shackel
Head of Lingfield Prep School
 

As Head of Lingfield Prep School, I am delighted to welcome you to our school. Being the mother of two children who attend the School, I am very conscious of how important it is to choose the right independent school for your child. I want my children to be happy at school, to be valued as individuals, for their talents to be recognised and encouraged and for them to be both challenged and supported in their learning. These are all things I believe they get in abundance at Lingfield.

At Lingfield Prep we have a huge responsibility to make sure our children get the best education they possibly can and I am proud to say that they are given every opportunity to shine in all areas of the curriculum. We strive to achieve academic excellence and give the children memorable experiences during these important years.

Making learning enjoyable is crucial – from Reception right through to the Sixth Form. Our School is one where children work together in a happy, family atmosphere, demonstrating their own unique personalities in everything they do.

We also believe that pastoral support is fundamental to the success of the child and our dedicated staff ensure that the children have the support and encouragement they need, allowing each individual to succeed at every level.

I have worked at the school since 1996, spending ten years teaching English, PE and Special Needs in the Senior School and then moving to the Prep School in 2006. This is a fabulous school, made special by the wonderful children and warm and hard-working staff. The setting is beautiful, surrounded by trees and greenery. Why would I want to work anywhere else?

I strongly believe that if you join our school, you'll agree that you've made a very good decision that will last a lifetime.
