Why should I choose St Bernard’s Prep?

At St Bernard’s Prep we put the child first. Our aim is to develop the whole child, building on their individual strengths. Here are some comments from our Pupils and Parents about our school.

"St Bernard’s Prep is like no other school I have been to. They have made me who I am today and we are so lucky to be here. We trust and respect each other, and are encouraged to do so. We are also encouraged to reach our full potential and have fun doing it! Go St. Bernard’s Prep!"                                                  Robyn, Year 6

"St Bernard’s Prep is a caring and loving school in which the children are all encouraged to do their best and to be kind and considerate to everyone around them. It really does have a caring community feel to it. My children both love going to school and are happy stimulated and settled. My son in particular enjoys the exciting sports at St. Bernard’s and this really helps to balance the academic studies."                    Mrs. Salvadori

"This school taught me to always reach for the stars, work hard and never give up."                                                                                                         Rebecca, Year 6

"Our children joined St Bernard's Preparatory School at a young age following a friend's recommendation. We have been delighted with the quality of teaching and our children's development ever since.  Our children continue to grow in stature and confidence but crucially are always allowed to be children and are encouraged to have fun while they learn."                                                                                               Mr Coward

"St Bernard’s is a very good school where your child will flourish and learn a lot of new things. A child at St. Bernard’s has a range of opportunities in every subject. The teachers here encourage the children to believe in themselves, so that they can find out how good they really are."                                                                  Ella, Year 6

"St Bernard's Prep embraces traditional Christian values, and the staff try hard to ensure each pupil has an environment in which they can thrive. Academically the children are challenged to achieve the best they can, and given every opportunity and all the support they need to do this."                                                                       Hasan, Year 6

"St Bernard's Prep is outstanding in many ways, but this time you really did shine! We were overwhelmed by the efforts the school made for our child's Holy Communion Mass. We appreciate he was the only one this year, so to celebrate the occasion in the way you did, was truly special."                                                        Mr Caseley & Ms Lyons
