Welcome from the Head of Prep

Welcome to Lingfield College Prep. I am delighted that you have taken an interest and want to find out more.

Everyone here enjoys the nurturing and happy environment where children are encouraged to be ambitious, aim high and embrace the wealth of enriching opportunities on offer. We want all our children to have wonderful experiences that will last a lifetime.

We are incredibly fortunate to be located in a beautiful village, set amidst acres of fields and woodland, where children have space to play and are inspired to learn.

Head of Prep School 

 The fact we are a genuine ‘though school’ with shared aims, values and principals, shared across Prep and Senior, means that we can invest valuable time in families and really get to know them. It also means that the pupils transition seamlessly through the school at all stages. Our intention to stretch, but not stress children means that pupils moving from Year 6 to 7 benefit without the added pressure of entrance exams. This allows us to focus on making the years with us truly memorable, developing their passions and igniting a genuine curiosity about the world and a desire to expand their horizons.

It is truly a privilege to be surrounded by children and to witness their joy and love for learning.

As staff, we place high importance on developing excellent relationships with the children and their parents and we take particular pride in the fact that they show no sense of entitlement and are very down-to-earth.

I know that choosing your child’s school is one of the most important decisions you’ll make and entrusting us with your child is a responsibility that we take very seriously.

Whilst our website and prospectus may offer an insight, nothing compares to a visit so please do book a visit and you will receive a warm welcome. We’d love to meet your child.
