What the parents say...

Prince's Mead is well managed by an inspirational headmistress who motivates both staff and pupils to achieve whatever they are capable of. It is a school characterised by progressive thinking and innovative ideas for education, which is reflected in their Mission Statement of “Preparing the Children of Today for the Challenges of Tomorrow”. For example, the Enterprise Project was introduced in year 6 to give pupils entrepreneurial opportunities. There are equal opportunities for girls and boys, who are encouraged to be creative and independent to prepare them for the demands of senior school. Prince’s Mead has a record of getting pupils into a wide range of senior schools which suit the talents of the individuals, such as Cheltenham Ladies’ College, Downe House, St Swithun’s, King Edward VI and Lord Wandsworth. The positive energy at the school is created through the children being educated in a nurturing environment, where they are encouraged to develop all round skills. The academic curriculum is enriched by creative and sporting opportunities through music, art, speech and drama and sports. For example, the school has an orchestra, brass, wind and string groups as well as a chamber choir. The school is situated in the Hampshire countryside surrounded by woods and fields. This enables the pupils to enjoy the outdoor pursuits on offer, such as climbing equipment, woodland exploration, running track, trim trail as well as sports such as cricket, tennis, rounders, netball, lacrosse and football. The facilities are modern and the school is well-equipped. It is a family orientated school where parents are welcomed as part of the school community. The result is a thriving community where pupils receive an exceptional education.
