The Ladies' College

The best possible start

Pre Preparatory Logo 2021Our Pre-Preparatory Department is a safe, calm and nurturing environment for your little girl to start her school life.

Here, learning and growing takes place indoors and out all through the school year, led by our caring and qualified staff. Our girls are happy and settled and thrive under our expert guidance. From the first days they feel part of The Ladies' College family and stay with their friends as they move up to through the Junior school, Senior School and Sixth form together.


Acting Head Teacher, The Ladies' College Junior School, Mrs de la Fosse

“For me, the benefits of a high quality early years education are immeasurable. The unique environment of our Pre- Preparatory Department fosters curiosity and a love of learning, encouraging the girls to develop the confidence and self esteem needed both to lead and serve others in later life.”
