Wycliffe will promote a pioneering spirit and encourage individuals to flourish and embrace their futures as global citizens.
We celebrate diversity and, in our beautiful Cotswold grounds, children have freedom to explore and be themselves. We nurture each and every child, whether they are gifted and talented or find school life more challenging.
What we do is based on four Core Values: Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, and Empathy, and these permeate through every part of School life.
Helena Grant, Head of Prep
Wycliffe Prep starts a new chapter in its prestigious history with the appointment of Mrs Helena Grant as Head.
Mrs Grant’s arrival coincides with exciting new developments at the Prep School based in the Cotswolds. Wycliffe officially starts its new 3+ Nursery Class in September and the summer has seen a range of refurbishment work including full resurfacing of its Astroturf pitch for the use of Hockey and other sports.
For Mrs Grant, Wycliffe represents so much that she values and believes education should be.
“I believe in childhood. I believe in fun, being outdoors and active as much as possible, getting messy, exploring and holding on to that wonderful sense of curiosity into the early teenage years. And that is why I chose to work here,” she explains.
“Wycliffe offers a robust academic offering which challenges individuals and encourages enquiry and a desire to learn. At the same time, young people need a strong emotional awareness and resilience which underpins their knowledge and understanding of themselves.”
With small classes and a high pupil to teacher ratio, Wycliffe gives highly personalised attention to the learning of each child. Learning beyond the classroom is also core to a child’s development. The extra curricular provision at Wycliffe is wide-reaching and all-encompassing – with something for every child. Sport and the Arts play a major role in life at the school.
“My vision for the school is clear – strong academics, a range of opportunities to challenge and inspire all children and a personalised pastoral care system to support all in our community,” says Mrs Grant. “I plan to continue the strong sense of the individual and the pioneering spirit which enables us to write our own story, hopefully a varied, adventurous and satisfying one.”
All ability levels well catered for and school has demonstrated this by its affiliation to both CResTed, which confirms its good SEN provision and NAGC, which accredits work for Gifted and Talented.
With small classes and a high pupil to teacher ratio, we can give highly personalised attention to the learning of your son or daughter.
The care, security, welfare and happiness of our pupils comes first, as we believe that a happy child, free from worry, will learn and achieve more.
Links with parents, carers and guardians are excellent….high levels of parental satisfaction with the school, its curriculum, the range of activities, the quality of pastoral care and the effectiveness of management, and a very large majority of the parents said they would recommend the school.
Our pupils develop independence and ‘a pioneering spirit’ and we encourage them to write their own story so they are ready to embrace their futures.
