Preparatory School for Girls

Pre-Prep (Nursery, Reception, Years 1 and 2)

At Halstead, the Pre-Prep curriculum is designed to develop the essential skills, knowledge and understanding that will be built on as your daughter progresses through the school.


Pupils of all ages have excellent attitudes to their learning. All are willing to 'have a go' and greet every challenge with enthusiasm and a 'can-do' attitude.

Within a positive, nurturing environment, girls are able to enjoy their learning and sense their progressAt Halstead we offer a rich curriculum where learning is enhanced through themes, workshops, educational visits and extra-curricular activities. At the core of our teaching is the desire to empower the girls to investigate, enquire, reflect and build on their learning to give them strong skills as independent learners and to ensure that their core skills are of a high standard. All girls learn through a broad and balanced curriculum and, from Reception, take part in a whole school assembly on four days and a hymn practice on the fifth day.
