Westonbirt Prep School near Tetbury, Gloucestershire is celebrating this morning after making the Top 100 Prep Schools list in The Times newspaper for the second year in a row. Moving up from 88th place last year, this year sees the prep school advance to 60th position.
Mr Sean Price, Headmaster of Westonbirt Prep says ‘We are delighted with this result which reflects the hard work of all our students and staff. Westonbirt Prep strives to deliver the best all-round education for every child. Whilst academic results such as this are welcomed, emphasis remains on each individual’s needs both in and out of the classroom and great emphasis is put on developing skills and recognising achievements in areas such as sport and performing arts.
Westonbirt Prep pupils complete a unique Skills for Life Diploma in Year 6 where all individuals learn and evaluate a range of personal development skills through activities such as cookery, life-saving, first-aid, Bike-a-bility and Forest School. They are encouraged to draw on skills developed through experiences such as their residential trip and entrepreneurship day, during which they are challenged to create their own product and business.
