Our Pre-Prep children begin their Feltonfleet journey at the age of three in our Nursery classes at Calvi House.

Throughout the Pre-Prep phase, pupils are nurtured through excellent teaching and pastoral care as they develop core academic skills, personal qualities and attitudes for life.  We recognise the benefits of having the time and space to explore, to investigate, question, collaborate and play out all the experiences that underpin lifelong learning. Every moment of their precious childhood is truly valued. Classroom facilities combine modern technology with all the best features of a spacious, traditional setting in a house surrounded by a stunning natural, wooded environment. All Nursery, Reception and Year One pupils are educated largely within Calvi House and its grounds, with regular visits to the Swimming Pool, Dance Studio, Ashbee Theatre and Sports Hall on the main school campus.

As they enter their final year of Pre-Prep, the Year 2 children benefit from a dedicated Year 2 House, which offers the pupils their own space to learn and forge closer links with the Prep school.  In addition, most of their specialist lessons are taught in the main school buildings and grounds adjacent to the Year 2 House. In this way the pupils still enjoy the pastoral familiarity and identity of being part of the Pre-Prep, whilst increasing in confidence as part of the wider school community as they prepare for transition to the Lower School.

Stay & Play Sessions

Throughout the year we hold a number of Stay & Play sessions.  These sessions allow parents and their pre school-age children the opportunity to experience the Nursery and Reception learning environment for themselves.  We are now taking registrations for Nursery and Reception for entry up to September 2026.
