Although the Prep School will be self-contained in Stoatley Hall, Prep staff and pupils will also have access to the Senior School facilities, including: the TV and Podcast Studio; Sports Hall, courts and pitches; Recital Room and Theatre; Science labs and the Creativity & Innovation Hub. They will also have full use of the school’s extensive 26 acre site with its myriad opportunities for outdoor learning. Staff too, will benefit from the opportunities for closer collaboration as an all-through school in one stunning location.
A seamless transition from Prep to Senior School
As an all-through school, pupils at The Royal Prep School do not have to sit entrance assessments for the Senior School. However, high achieving Year 6 pupils are encouraged and supported in their application for Year 7 Senior School scholarships, with many being successful.
Prep School pupils also benefit from dedicated transition events where they enjoy inspiring sessions with Senior School teaching staff, often aided by Senior School or Sixth Form students. With the school on one site, Prep pupils will know the layout well from their use of shared facilities, and have little difficulty in adjusting to life at Senior School.
