Our next Reception Open Morning will be held on: Friday 13 October at 9.30am.
Book your place using the form on this page and come along to find out why Stonar Prep is an excellent place for your child to begin their educational journey.
Stonar's Prep School looks out over our vast green fields, providing space for our children to grow academically and pastorally. Nestled within our Prep School, our Reception class start their academic journey in a welcoming and supportive setting. Pupils follow 'In the Moment' learning for a child-led experience, with great importance being placed on outdoor learning. Despite having their own building, Stonar Prep children have full access to the whole school facilities, including weekly swimming lessons from Nursery onwards, and the Prep experience is enhanced by specialists teaching art, drama, music, spanish and sport.
Our Reception Open Morning will provide families with an opportunity to experience first hand our stunning countryside campus. Head of Prep, Mr Rob Cunningham, will be hosting the event supported by his Prep teaching team and admissions staff, who will be on hand to answer any questions.

"There are a number of things that I enjoy most about Stonar, but it starts as you drive onto the estate; the School has a very special feel about it and the space and sky immediately put you in a positive state of mind. This immediate impression is backed up by dedicated staff, committed and happy children and a positive community."
I feel confident when dropping off my child that they are in the best possible hands and environment!"
