Newbridge Preparatory School catering for girls, aged two to eleven years old and boys aged two to seven years old, is a very special place. Our purpose as a modern preparatory school is to offer an excellent standard of education for our pupils, balancing traditional values with cutting edge teaching and learning. As we are not linked to a senior school, we pride ourselves on being the only truly independent ‘Prep’ school in Wolverhampton. We are a small, personal school where everyone knows everyone else – just like a family. We foster an environment in which children can grow in confidence, learning honesty, consideration, loyalty and openness.
Independent Preparatory School of The Year 2020 Nominated as the Independent School of the Year 2020 by The Sunday Times, we are a non-selective school with just under 160 pupils aged two to eleven years. We have been ranked in the top 20 independent preparatory schools in the country for several years in The Sunday Times Parent Power list based on our Year Six SATs results. In Parent Power 2020, we were ranked the 2nd highest performing Prep School in the country. Newbridge Preparatory School has a longstanding reputation as a school of excellence. Following our ISI report in January 2016, the school now joined an elite group of UK schools that have ‘excellent’ outcomes across all areas of the school; with results at age eleven ‘exceptional in relation to the national average for maintained primary schools’.
Small School – where quality of education matters Our small school has a well justified reputation as a friendly, family school. Excellent relationships between children and staff lie at the heart of the school’s success and there are shared expectations for striving towards academic excellence, whilst ensuring that all children are nurtured to be their very best as individuals, whatever their varied strengths. Close relationships are a significant characteristic of life at Newbridge. Children and parents alike feel secure when they know they are part of a small community where everyone knows everyone. With small, average class sizes of eighteen and one form entry, each child is treated as an individual, and valued both for who they are and who they could become.
