What The Good Schools Guide says..
The pre-prep department is surrounded by high walls enclosing an enchanting ‘secret garden’ complete with mud kitchen and pigs - its head told us that days there were ‘all about exploring, challenging, listening, before they go on to learning more formally. We love to take the curriculum outdoors, offering anything but a sedentary education’. ..
