We are proud of the 130 years reputation Leicester Prep has for academic excellence and we work hard to ensure that our children leave us with the highest levels of attainment.  We develop strong links with Senior Independent Schools and support parents through the process of making the right choice for each child’s onward education.

We prepare each child with a focus on individual needs.


Our classes are small enough for each child to be able to thrive within their personal level of ability.  There is a strong focus on core subjects, taught towards the goal of success at the 11+ Common Entrance exam. Children are taught by specialist teachers for music and choir and benefit from Latin studies from Year 3 to Year 6.


Social skills, independence and responsibility are instilled throughout the Upper School with children taking responsibility for daily homework as well as role-modelling excellent behaviour around the school.  In addition, school trips to Norfolk and France in Years 5 and 6 give the children an opportunity to be away from home in a safe but new environment.
