With small classes and a friendly, caring atmosphere, Kimbolton Preparatory School has the feel of a village school yet the facilities and opportunities that only a bigger one can offer.
Its pupils receive plenty of individual attention but have enough classmates to develope wide circle of friends. They cover the National Curriculum and more besides: modern foreign languages and weekly swimming lessons from age five, an extensive programme of trips and visits in support of their classroom-based learning and a huge range of activities at lunchtimes and after-school.
As children progress through the School, formal sports coaching and inter-school fixtures are introduced. Music is taught from Reception onwards and individual instrumental lessons from specialist visiting music teachers are available once a child is ready. There are various ensembles which regularly form the Schools orchestra for formal and informal concerts.
"Kim Club" provides before and after-school care for all ages.
Life at Kimbolton Preparatory School is busy, hugely rewarding and great fun. The academic results are excellent but the Schools approach is one of balance so that children are stimulated, developed and challenged in many different ways.
Kimbolton Preparatory School caters for children from ages four to eleven. Almost all of them progress, with their friends, to Kimbolton School for their secondary education where the ethos continues.
The Prep and Senior Schools are located at opposite ends of imbolton Schools stunning 120-acre campus which includes extensive parkland and the historic Kimbolton Castle, the former residence of the Dukes of Manchester and once home to Queen Katharine of Aragon.
