Our Aims & Ethos

Hampton Pre-Prep & Prep School is a friendly, lively and unpretentious school for girls aged 3 – 7 and boys aged 3 – 11.

Our core function is to provide an excellent all round education. We want our pupils to make excellent progress that results in superb achievements whilst they are with us. We want them to transfer happily and successfully to their senior school.

We value effort as much as achievement; we work hard to promote and sustain the conditions where both can be celebrated. We rely on each other.

We welcome pupils of all cultures and backgrounds. We nurture a community where safety, respect and trust are paramount. We share in both our triumphs and defeats and know how important it is to embrace both as learning opportunities. This enables our pupils to make sense of the world and know how to have a positive impact upon it.
