Why Pridwin Preparatory School

Pridwin offers a well-balanced and culturally enriched programme that ensures our boys receive the finest possible start to their education. We know that academic success in later years depends on a solid foundation in primary school and our curriculum facilitates an environment where boys develop a love of learning through creative and collaborative approaches.

The integration of outdoor, innovative, and age-appropriate classroom lessons provides a perfect platform for the growth of our boys’ intellectual and emotional development. Our leading academic programme promotes development of 21st Century skills, which includes a focus on inquiry-based learning through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics)
