Blog Education Questions

Whether you go for pre-prep or nursery, the right preschool setting will be one in which your child can thrive, flourish and develop - socially, cognitively, emotionally, physically. But there are no hard and fast rules about which is best, so try not to have too many preconceived ideas and explore all options so you make the right decision for you.

As the name suggests, the main aim of prep schools is to prepare pupils for entry to independent senior schools at either 11 or 13. 

It doesn’t take a financial expert to tell you that independent schools burn a hole in any parent’s pocket; according to Lloyds bank, school fees have risen more than 20% since 2012. But it’s not just independent schools that will cost you either; behind purchasing a home, having a child will likely be your largest expense.
