Prep school boys 1

Welcome to Pre-Prep

Children are born to learn. We know that the journey to a rich and fulfilling education begins
at an early age, and it starts with developing a love for learning.

We believe that young people should have access to stimulating environments, both in the classroom and in the outside world. Between our specialist teaching spaces and our partnership with the British Trust for Ornithology, there are no limits to how and where our pupils learn to wonder.

In our Pre-Prep, pupils are given every opportunity to discover the world around them in a way that sets them on the path to life-long learning and personal success.

From the start of their school career, our children are supported as individuals – developing at their own pace, nurtured and supported by caring, professional staff. We pride ourselves on the level of pastoral care that we offer and we are structured in such a way as to enable all children to fulfil their potential within a positive, happy and secure environment. 

From Nursery to Year Six, our academic programme, the Exploration Curriculum, is informed by our Prep mission statement:

Discover the World

Thetford Grammar Prep provides a safe, caring environment that gives every pupil the skills, opportunities and motivation to learn from and about the world around them. 

Our curriculum is designed to open up a voyage of discovery for all, taking them on a journey through history, across the globe and out into the universe beyond. Our curriculum is designed to build breadth of expertise, including in English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Design Technology, Computing, Languages, Art, Music, Drama and Sport. We do this by fostering a life-long love of learning.

Our pupils discover the world, they learn to understand the world, and they begin to find their own place in the world. Our pupils leave Thetford Grammar Prep equipped with the knowledge and understanding of how to harness their limitless potential.
