Nurturing young minds
Melrose, a beautiful Georgian building on the same campus as the Senior School, has been home to our warm and friendly Preparatory and Junior Departments since 1949.
Our pupils embrace The Ladies' College ethos to be the best they can be, and are well prepared for a smooth transition up to Senior School in Year 7 (Remove).
In Lower, Middle and Upper Preparatory (Years R, 1 and 2) we take only 20 girls per year and have both a teacher and a Learning Support Assistant allocated to each class, ensuring your daughter gets every chance to grow and shine as the individual she is.
In the Junior Department (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) we take up to 24 girls per year. In these year groups the girls are often taught by subject specialist teachers. In addition the girls benefit from two Learning Support Assistants who work throughout the department.

“Melrose pupils feel motivated enough to aim high, question ideas, take risks and develop as independent learners, driven by their own self-belief. Above all, they enjoy school and relish in all the opportunities that our broad and exciting curriculum has to offer.”
