Nursery & Pre-Prep

Ballard School Pre-Prep (Nursery Class to Year 2) provides an outstanding start to your child’s education.  Highly experienced and dedicated staff provide enjoyable, stimulating and appropriate learning opportunities for each child in their care. A warm, friendly and encouraging atmosphere abounds where each child is nurtured and supported to succeed personally, socially and academically. Staff quickly develop strong links with parents to work in partnership with Ballard School in developing independent, confident and enthusiastic learners.

Wide ranging experiences engage the interest of our young pupils developing skills and understanding of the world around them. Specialist teachers and superb facilities such as the Sports Hall, Performing Arts Centre, the Dance Studio and the extensive grounds enhance the educational experience for our young learners.

In Year 1 and Year 2 pupils enjoy a varied mix of academic, creative and physical lessons with English and Maths given a high priority plus a great selection of activities and clubs.   Our broad and balanced curriculum and extra-curricular activities prepare the pupils for their transition to the Lower Prep department.  Each year Pre-Prep pupils participate in Harvest Assembly, the Nativity play, the Summer Musical and other concerts.  Pupils enjoy healthy meals and snacks. Ballard School open hours are from 8.00am to 5.00pm.

Prospective parents are encouraged to come and see the Pre-Prep “in action” where you will be given a warm welcome.
