What the school says...

At Bancroft's Prep we aim to provide children with the best possible academic education, and to help them reach their full potential, whilst also ensuring that they are happy and well rounded individuals. We offer children a rich and diverse range of experiences; to help them find areas where they can excel or simply have fun; to encourage their natural curiosity; to make sure they enjoy their school life.

The happiness of all the children in our care is fundamental to our approach. We are very proud of our excellent academic results. We are also proud that these are achieved alongside our children's personal and social development.

At Bancrofts Prep, we focus ion positive behaviour and rewards. Our headline 3 School Rules reinforce our ethos: everyone has the right to be happy; respect other people and their property; use your common sense.

We believe it is our role to bring out the very best in our children, both academically and in terms of their emotional intelligence. We want to help prepare them for life in the world outside where the ability to form positive relationships and to lead a happy life is as important as the ability to read or reckon. We want our children to have fun while they learn; in this way, we believe they will derive a lifelong love of learning.
