The Prep School at Greenfield is comprised of Middle School (Years 3 and 4) and Upper School (Years 5 and 6). Throughout the Prep School, there is a natural and appropriate increase in academic expectations. The children are given greater independence, with opportunities to take control of their own learning and steer their wider interests toward more personal goals. This helps to prepare them not only for the 11+ exam process but life beyond.

Increased Expectations

The transition into Middle School from Year 2 can be a big leap but, thanks to the structure of the school as a whole, the children have plenty of familiar teachers and resources to reassure them and they continue to use facilities and specialist teaching spaces that they will have encountered many times before. Greenfield belongs to the children and we are proud that they feel so at home when at school.

Upper School

Upper School sees the culmination of work gone before, as the children grow into confident and self-assured young people. The teachers love watching how each individual grows more into themselves and, more often than not, the path for that child becomes ever clearer as they reach these final two years of prep school. The application process for senior school is an exciting time of change, that brings with it feelings of apprehension and uncertainty for both parent and child. Our incredible staff and leadership team are here to support your family all the way and, with help, the children develop important coping mechanisms and life skills that ultimately prepare them for public examinations and higher education.

Beyond Prep

One reason why our parents favour Greenfield as a standalone Prep School is that there are so many exceptional independent senior schools within easy reach of Woking and this offers them the freedom of choice for their senior education. One of the great joys of Greenfield is the variety of interests, skills and personalities that our children develop and we take enormous pride in helping them and their families select the senior school that will offer them the greatest possible opportunities to succeed.
