Introduction

 

With a beautiful river setting, Latymer Prep is a popular co-ed school known for its caring attitude. They provide a ‘deep and broad’ curriculum in which is instilled a set of ‘Learning Habits’ identified to develop a positive attitude to learning in all of their pupils. Examples include, ‘Persistence’, ‘Questioning and Posing Problems’ and ‘Listening and Understanding with Empathy’. A holistic education is really something this school believes in.

 

The school’s extracurricular activities bring together children from all age groups. The current offer includes chess, zumba, drama, karate, art and film studies, but it is an ever-changing mix.

 

Excellent facilities – some of which are shared with the Upper School include a 200-seat theatre, a performing arts building with a recital hall and a new sports centre with a six-lane swimming pool and climbing wall.

Latymer Prep School 7 Plus (7+) Scholarships and Bursaries

 

Latymer Prep aims to offer at least two means-tested bursaries in Year 3.

 

Parents wishing to apply for a bursary should indicate this at the time of registration. They will then be sent a form in which to provide further details of their financial situation. This allows the school to determine the level of financial support it can provide. All bursaries are contingent upon a strong academic performance in the 7+ exam.

 

In the past, bursary support of between 95-100% has been given. Assuming satisfactory academic progress, this support will continue up to A Level.

 

Latymer Prep School: Destination Schools at 11+

 

It is Latymer Prep’s expectation that all children will progress to the Upper School. However, if they believe that a child is struggling to keep up, they see it as their professional responsibility to speak to parents and support and advise on a different school for the child’s secondary education.

 

In the case of relocation or changing family circumstances, Latymer Prep will support families who are having to make these decisions, but they do not prepare children for entrance exams to other schools.
