What The Good Schools Guide says..
Delightful school, which offers ‘a healthy antidote to a results-driven culture'; the sort of place where three squeaky notes on a violin from a nervous first time performer would raise the roof......
What the school says...
Stonar Preparatory School develops confident, inquisitive and independent girls and boys, who enjoy their education and are well-prepared for the next stage of their school careers. We have small classes with an average of 12 pupils per class and experienced, specialist teachers who provide creative and imaginative learning that fuels childrens engagement, motivation and love of learning.
Children at Stonar Prep have access to fantastic sports facilities, beautiful gardens and parkland and even an equestrian centre. Girls and boys are taught by specialist sports coaches and compete in inter-schools fixtures from the age of 7. Rugby, hockey, netball, swimming, cricket, tennis and riding are core sports. There are a huge number of clubs and activities to choose from every day. We run trips and workshops and invite expert speakers to come in regularly.
Stonar Prep caters for busy parents and pupils - with a breakfast club, before and after school care, and numerous after-school clubs. Junior boarding is homely and fun; boys and girls can stay the night as and when required. We help each child discover their aptitudes and develop their confidence as they experience numerous opportunities within and beyond the classroom. ...Read more
