Headmaster’s Welcome

How a child learns is as important as what a child learns.

Childhood is precious. Everyone knows happy children are more likely to learn and develop and we take pastoral care personally as we get to know, listen to and work with all our children.

Our education, with its strong emphasis on English, mathematics and science, is enhanced and given depth by incorporating a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) programme which encourages children to explore the practical uses of these subjects and the links between them. Alongside this, our Creative Learning programme encourages the children to explore topics in depth and not be restrained by artificial boundaries. Children leave PGP with the skills and attitudes of inquisitiveness, independence of thought and lifelong learning skills that will equip them not just for the next chapter at their senior school but for an ever-changing world.

By making the creative arts a vital part of what we offer, we give all our pupils the opportunity to step into a role on stage, deliver a match report at assembly, express themselves through art or pick up an instrument and perform, enabling self-confidence to be nurtured and to grow both in and out of the classroom.

Our staff pride themselves on really knowing individual children and in providing a huge range of opportunities for them to discover the interests, skills and passions that are so crucial in building a rounded young person.

I am passionate about prep school education and have always enjoyed working with parents to provide the very best for their children. As parents you too should feel part of a school community and our open approach and strong links with our parent association, Friends Of Parsons Green Prep (FOPGP), encourage you to work alongside us, offering the very best for your child as well as making it fun to be a parent at PGP.

Come and see for yourself. I would love to show you around and discuss with you the ways in which we can help your child reach his or her potential.
