About The Pre-Prep

The Maynard Pre-Prep is our Early Years and Key Stage One Department for girls aged 4 – 7 years old (Reception – Year 2).


“I just wanted to say thank you the most perfect start to my daughter’s education. In just two short years I have seen her truly blossom. She has developed a lovely confidence in herself, she has pride.

She announced one day, in a very straightforward way “Mummy I do believe in myself”. Her strength and independence, her uniqueness has grown and been supported throughout.

Her love of learning has been reinforced with wonderfully creative teaching – she also seems to have a developed a real aspiration for true kindness and manners!

I want to thank everyone at The Maynard School – she seems to have become more of herself than I ever imagined.”

Denise Hough, Year 2 Parent


At these very early days of school life we believe that instilling a love of learning is every bit as important as the subjects we teach! We aim to set up a ‘home from home’ where your daughter can flourish. Every family and every child is a unique package, and with our small class sizes, exceptional resources and experienced teachers, we are confident that we provide the best offer available.

As an all-girls school our pupils can play in a carefree manner without being pushed to the corners of the playground by a game of football or cricket. Girls learn differently and in the classroom they are free to express themselves and be heard. Here at The Maynard, we pride ourselves on the fact that girls can take the lead and be as strong and independent in their play as they are in their learning.

Being confident and happy is essential to our girls’ ability to learn and our vision for the Pre-Prep is driven by our desire to share in the unique learning journey of each individual who comes into our classrooms.
