We recognise that in deciding to send your son or daughter to Leicester Preparatory School you are making a tremendous investment both financially and - more importantly - in entrusting us with your child for the crucial early years of his or her development. We know that this decision will be based on careful research, discussions within the family and with other parents and friends.

We aim to make the process as straightforward as possible by providing all the opportunities you need to talk to our staff and pupils and to see the School at work, so that you can feel fully confident that you have made the right choice.

The best way to get a true flavour of Leicester Prep's atmosphere is to visit the School in person. We are delighted to welcome families at any point – to tour our historic site, see the School’s facilities at first-hand, and above all to meet our staff and pupils.

If you decide that LPS is the right destination for your child, we will start building our relationship with you straightaway - through newsletters, invitations to School events, and contacts with existing pupils or staff. This will ensure that on that great day when your son or daughter steps through the front door, the transition is as smooth as possible and they are able to make the very best start with us - the beginning of their journey of real personal development and fulfilment.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Leicester Prep.
