South Lee Open Day Friday 6th October 10am -12pm


Prep school offers a five-year programme that will equip each child for the transition to senior school. We strive to ensure, in close partnership with parents, that our pupils develop into well educated, balanced and confident teenagers, with an understanding of both personal and group responsibility.

Prep school starts at Year 4, when the children are aged 8+. To ease the transition from Pre-Prep to Prep school, each Year 4 class has a form teacher. The pupils have a ‘home room’ where many of their lessons are taught. The form teacher oversees their general welfare and teaches them a variety of academic subjects. Specialists in other subject areas support and complement the work of the form teachers.

Once in the Prep school, all pupils are appointed to one of three Houses: Abbey, Manor or Tower. House marks are awarded for good work and commitment to the school’s ethos. We believe in, and have a healthy respect for, competition at South Lee. Inter-House matches are a feature of our sporting programme.

House Captains are elected by their peers. This gives our older children positions of responsibility within the school and provides them with an opportunity to develop leadership skills at a very important stage in their young lives.
