Lower Prep

The Lower School at Sherborne House provides a nurturing and engaging environment. During these key years of schooling, the focus for the form tutors is to prioritise getting to know the pupils and promoting a sense of belonging. The staff within the Lower School aim to foster a love of learning through a child-led curriculum and personalised learning for all. The children in Year 1-3 benefit from specialised teaching in Performing Arts, PE, Modern and Foreign Languages (French and Spanish). In Year 3, the children are also introduced to specialist Drama lessons.
