Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to St. Bernard’s Preparatory School, one of the leading prep schools in Berkshire.  As a Catholic school we celebrate the Catholic faith but also welcome and embrace children of all faiths.  A key foundation of our daily school life is recognising our commonalities and celebrating our differences and developing mutual respect, understanding and tolerance.

We believe we offer children the best start to their education which will help them realise their full potential.  We offer a creative and challenging curriculum, enriched by experiences and opportunities.  Small class sizes enable our team of highly qualified and enthusiastic teachers to be responsive to the needs of the individual child ensuring progression for all our children.  We have a wide range of sport, music, art and drama activities on offer as well as leadership opportunities to help develop our children’s confidence and character. 

We are proud of our excellent reputation as a school which successfully combines a nurturing ethos with academic excellence, which is reflected in outstanding results in local and national tests. Our children leave us as courteous, confident, and articulate young citizens, committed to the ideal of service to others and well prepared for secondary education. 

You are welcome to come and visit our school, at an open day or on a personal visit. Our children will take you on a tour of our school where you will be guaranteed a warm welcome and I will be delighted to answer any questions you may have.
