Why and how to apply to the Scarborough College Prep School
Choosing an independent education for your child is a very personal decision and therefore it is difficult to say why it is the right choice for you and your child. In the current climate, it might be one of the most difficult decisions you have to make. There is nothing we can do to make that decision any easier. In fact, if we let the facts speak for themselves, it might even be more difficult.
A decision to enrol at Scarborough College Prep School is a decision to move to significantly smaller class sizes, more personal attention and more teaching and learning outside the four walls of a traditional classroom. From Year 3 onwards, it’s a move to sports and games lessons every day and specialist teaching in subjects such as the Sciences, History, French, Maths and English. There are no SATS in Year 6 and pupils in the Prep School have automatic access into Year 7 without a waiting list.
In the Early Years, the Prep School features Beach School. Forest School, French lessons and swimming. As the Prep School has full use of the Scarborough College facilities and fleet of minibuses, there are countless opportunities for music lessons, visual arts and drama, as well as school trips. Pupils can sign up to weekly LAMDA lessons and one-to-one music lessons.
The application process is simple and straightforward. Personal visits of the school are possible, following strict Covid-safety measures for the moment. After a first conversation with the school registrar, Mrs Bays, you will have a meeting with Mr Chris Barker, Head of the Prep School. This can be via telephone or face-to-face. We also hope to be able to offer taster visits as soon as possible. After your meeting with Mr Barker, Mrs Bays will guide you through the process step by step until your child is a Scardeburgian.
Scholarships and bursaries are available from Reception and to be considered, all you have to do is contact the Registrar. Mrs Bays will help you with the financial assistance forms and any questions about the scholarships and bursaries process. Feel free to contact us without any kind of obligation for a chat about how your child unleash their potential by enrolling at the Scarborough College Prep School.
