Private prep schools are a unique part of the British education system and are privately funded by fees and donations. They cater for students between the ages of 8 and 13, most of whom will then progress on to the associated senior school.

Some schools will be based on the same campus as the senior schools, but others will have a stand-alone campus. Schools will have excellent recreational facilities and extra-curricular programs. There will be a superior level of pastoral care and supervision, with a strong focus on progression to senior school.
