The key feature of Wycliffe Prep is its happy atmosphere. Children and parents enjoy their experience of the school as well as getting second to none opportunities in sport, music and drama, combined with some exceptional teaching. Its atmosphere, creativity and endearing quirkiness are typified by an extraordinary portrait of Mr Palmer, done in string on the wire-netting fence to the tennis courts – smiling, as usual.
A school which offers a way of life as much as an education. That the Wycliffe experience clearly breeds the confidence and openness is evident in its pupils. Definitely hotting up academically under the new head, but still faithful to its broad academic ability range. If success increases demand, will it be able to maintain an open admission policy? At present it is doing a remarkable job of being ‘all things to all men’ – and women. A real gem of a school.
