Developing a thirst for knowledge.

Our thriving Pre-Preparatory is a happy, lively environment where year 1 and 2 pupils build upon the key skills already learnt during their time in Reception.

Children are taught in small classes by caring, experienced and well-qualified staff and enjoy a varied and exciting curriculum.

Our approach

Educational and emotional development.

Literacy and numeracy have a high priority to ensure a sound foundation, but great emphasis is also placed on the emotional and social development of each individual.

Parents are invited to be involved in the various activities on offer and to learn how we teach literacy and numeracy in sessions such as Stay and Play, which focus on numbers, phonics, and PE and Movement. We also welcome parents to our regular class and celebration assemblies.


Modern facilities in a beautiful setting.

Our impressive private school has been tailored to deliver a fulfilling educational experience. Set in beautiful woodland and open space, pupils can enjoy modern school facilities that enhance their learning experience.

Learning combines the best of traditional education values with current best practice in Early Years teaching. The curriculum is broad and balanced and children are encouraged to learn and question through a host of creative and stimulating activities.

-Mrs Basnett-Nash, Head of Pre-Preparatory

Enhancing every child's learning.

In addition to the core subjects of Maths and English your child will have lessons in Science, History, Geography, RE, Computing, Spanish, Music, Drama, PSHE, Art and DT, many of which are taught by specialist teachers.

Outside of the classroom, the addition of Forest School in Pre-Preparatory promotes and develops essential Huddersfield Grammar School character skills of resilience and teamwork. Physical activity also plays a very important part in our curriculum and your child will have weekly PE, Dance and Swimming lessons, with many additional opportunities for further activities provided by our extensive extra-curricular programme.

Through the House system, our children get involved in a variety of fun and challenging individual and collaborative activities while representing their House. They also take part in a number of whole-school House events.


Excel outside of the classroom.

We strongly promote pupils to engage with our co-curricular enrichment programme to enhance their learning.

Throughout the year there are many clubs and societies listed on the weekly calendar on offer to Pre-Preparatory pupils.

The variety of clubs and activities on offer include:

An adventure to remember.

A place for children to evolve and become confident, enthusiastic individuals. We encourage pupils to develop a genuine thirst for knowledge to take with them beyond their school years.
