Deputy Head [Head of Prep]

I am delighted to welcome you to our Prep School, a place where learning comes to life. Our pupils are an integral part of the Hydesville family and they strive to reach their full potential, be it in the fields of academia, art, music, sport or creativity.

Talented, committed teachers, with class sizes significantly smaller than other establishments, ensure our family-feel school puts each child at the centre.  Learning is personalised and our commitment to providing a rounded education ensures our pupils fulfil and exceed their potential.

We are proud of our broad and balanced curriculum that offers pupils a range of experiences, including opportunities to perform, compete and celebrate achievements. Our Centre for Excellence for 11+ Preparation and the Hydesville Challenge programme prepares children for grammar school and secondary education, whilst our diverse enrichment provision illustrates the importance of developing the character to thrive in the wider world.

Whatever stage your child embarks on their Hydesville Prep School journey, we will ensure they strive every day to do well and to become the best they can be.
