My ethos as Head is to ensure that children are developed as whole learners, giving value to all subjects. I believe children should be encouraged to explore, be creative and ask questions.

The best possible foundation

Build. Nurture. Celebrate. At Wakefield Grammar Pre-Preparatory School, our aim is to introduce children to the joys of learning. We believe that every child brings their own unique talents and strengths into the classroom and we are here to bring them out, to build confidence in their natural abilities and to create strong, independent individuals who care about others, embrace new challenges and have a growing awareness of the world around them.

I really enjoyed the buzz and my first two days at Wakefield Pre-Prep both meeting the children and staff and getting stuck in. What an amazing school to work at.
