Prep School


Our Preparatory School provides a calm, caring environment for pupils from ages 3-11 and offers a separate and secure Key Stage 1-2 education.  Located in the former Headteacher's house, called Garden House, in the grounds of the main school campus, "The Prep" (as it is known) has rapidly become a fully integrated part of The Hammond. 

Fees Per Term are £2,575 per term (2014/15) To include Lunch.



Lessons are taken largely in Garden House, but use is also regularly made of The Hammond's excellent facilities for specialist teaching - Dance studios, Music department, Science labs, Home Economics kitchen and Drama studios, as well as the 400 seat theatre at the heart of our Performing Arts Centre.


prep garden


For break times, The Prep has the benefit of its own walled garden with fantastic wooden adventure play area, which gives the school a sheltered yet open-air feel.


The children at The Hammond Preparatory School recently received a free pack of trees from The Woodland Trust.  Trees provide oxygen, lock up harmful carbon and trap pollutants to give us cleaner air and water; they also provide a fantastic habitat for wildlife. 

All of the students have planted their own tree in a pot, which they will look after whilst they are at Hammond Prep.  When they move on to their next school. they will be able to take their sapling with them to either plant at home or 'somewhere special'.

The children have planted seeds, bulbs and plug plants in the garden and even the youngest of the children grow their own vegetables!
