School Life

Daily life at St Margaret’s Prep School.

There’s so much to say about life at St. Margaret’s Prep, but the main thing that you need to know is that it’s fantastic. Don’t take our word for it, check out some of our Parent Reviews.

We’re extremely keen to ensure that the children here at St. Margarets are engaged, comfortable and above all else, happy. It’s for this reason that we put so much focus on the ‘school experience’ rather than just the ‘classroom experience’.

From our exceptional facilities and beautiful grounds to the broad range of sports and extra-curricular activities on offer, we provide everything that your children need to get the maximum enjoyment out of their ‘school experience’.

To get a better feel for how children across all of our Key Stages make the most of life at St. Margaret’s, then why not arrange a visit and see it all with your own eyes?
