Headmaster’s Welcome

“Here at Milton Keynes Preparatory School, we are proud of our considered balance of modern and traditional. Through a personal and specialised approach, we are a school where learning, fun and excellence come together to create a happy and purposeful environment.

“Right from the earliest years, our children work in small classes, receive specialist teaching and are encouraged to challenge themselves without fear, to become confident, independent learners.

“Specific subject teaching is a major part of daily life at MKPS. Whether it’s S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering & Design, Mathematics), Art, Music or Sport, the children are taught by inspirational, specialist staff in well-appointed environments. They even have the chance to grow their own crops, cook outside, enjoy a little pond-dipping and develop a hands-on knowledge of the environment at our school Environmental Centre.

When your children leave us in Year 6, they are ready for all that life in Senior School may throw at them. They are polite, respectful, articulate – and ready to lead the way.

“Meanwhile, to ensure every child in our school is nurtured and cared for, I am proud to mention our dedicated pastoral support team staff at the very centre of the care and wellbeing of our children. Together, we aim to empower them – from the babies in the Nursery through to the enthusiastic pupils in Year 6 – with the skills to be resilient, perseverant, eloquent individuals who can express their thoughts and feelings happily and safely.

“Whilst we strive to ensure all our children develop a confidence to take them beyond junior school, one of the things that we encourage in the children is kindness; this has shown itself time and again in the strong and lasting friendships that the children have created.

“As for me, one of the highlights as Headmaster of this busy school means that not only do I enjoy direct contact with the older children through teaching, but I also benefit from time spent with the younger year groups too.

“What better therapy for a busy Head than an afternoon with a class of giggling Reception children who are thrilled to be entertaining the Headmaster over tea and cakes?

“When your children leave us in Year 6, they are ready for all that life in Senior School may throw at them. They are confident, articulate and respectful – and ready to lead the way.

“At whatever age your child joins us, they will benefit hugely from the opportunities offered and as a result, they will flourish. We are very proud of all of the children that come through our doors, with 90-100% of our Year 6 leavers reaching the required standard at 11+ and being offered a place at their chosen Senior Grammar and/or Independent School.

We would be delighted to welcome your child to MKPS!
