Head's Welcome


Bablake Pre Prep offers a friendly and caring environment, where children are happy and excited to come to school.

Parents, pupils and staff work in harmony to ensure successful learning takes place. There is a family atmosphere where individuals are best prepared to take full advantage of the opportunities that lie ahead and they are set further along the way to achieving their all-round potential.

An integral part of Bablake

Pre Prep pupils are members of one of the country’s leading independent schools. From an early age your children will share in the ambition Bablake has for all of its pupils; that within an ethos of care and community, our shared aspirations help assure academic and all-round success. 

Differing Backgrounds, One Ambition

Families that choose Bablake come from many different backgrounds and cultures but all are determined that their children should have a great education. From a very early age, this instils in your children, and then our pupils, the determination to work hard alongside others and to do their best. We nurture that early impetus and give it educational form and academic opportunity. Bablake is a community. The sharing of collective values ensures co-operative success. Our last Inspection concluded that “Bablake pupils are happy and hardworking, confident and articulate.”

Come and meet us

We hope you are able to come and see our school. You would also be very welcome to visit the main Bablake School site. Every year former Pre Prep pupils leave the Sixth Form at 18 having achieved remarkable success. The educational foundation for this was laid many years before, at the Pre Prep.

A message from the Head of Bablake Pre Prep

Bablake Pre Prep is a special place where children can work and play together in safe and stimulating surroundings from Kindergarten to Year 2. We are proud of our reputation for providing a happy and friendly learning environment where children and parents feel welcome and supported.

Learning should be fun and we tailor our curriculum to make it interesting, exciting and relevant to young children. Emphasis is placed upon building firm foundations and nurturing a love of learning. We aim to inspire all pupils to do their best and to become more independent learners. The curriculum is taught in small teaching groups and incorporates specialist tuition in Music, Languages, PE, ICT, Games and Swimming.

Our team of dedicated and enthusiastic staff seeks to bring out the best in every pupil and to develop skills and talents to the full and to encourage good manners and considerate behaviour.

We do everything possible to make our school an enjoyable and positive experience. We believe that when the time comes to move up to Year 3 at the main Bablake site, the children and parents will take away fond memories of their time with us.
