Prep School (4-11)

Mrs Belk with pupils from Bellan House

We understand what a big decision it is for you to choose the right school for your child. We aim to make the process as simple as possible and have a number of options for you to get to know Oswestry School.

1. Open Mornings

You are also welcome to join us for a Whole School Open Morning, which is held on the first Saturday of October each year, where you will be able to meet our Early Years' teachers and take a tour of the whole Prep School from Reception though to Year 6. If you have the energy, you may also wish to visit the Senior School afterwards and enjoy a delicious school lunch.

Additionally we hold a Prep School Open Morning in May, at Bellan House.

2. Dabble Afternoons

Join us for a fun and interactive Dabble Afternoon.

We can also arrange taster sessions for entry into Years 1 to 6 where places are available.

3. Taster Days

We can arrange for your child to spend a taster day in their prospective class at a time to suit you. Your child will be accompanied by a 'buddy' from their class who will help them find out more about the school throughout the day. They will have the opportunity to sample an exciting mixture of academic lessons, co-curricular activities, sport, social time and meals.
