Prep School

Welcome from the Head


The aim of Liverpool College Preparatory School is to prepare boys and girls from the age of 7 to 11 years, for entry into Liverpool College Upper School. This year 38 of our 40 Year 6 pupils moved 'across the bridge' to the Upper School, where, I expect the vast majority will continue onto GCSE and A Level courses.

We do not attempt to 'cram' the children for examinations, although our pupils are certainly well prepared. The percentage of pupils gaining level 5's in the end of Key Stage 2 'SATs' tests has been twice the national average in recent years. Our educational philosophy acknowledges the best of recent developments in primary school teaching, whilst still placing emphasis on the traditional academic skills and attitudes. Literacy and numeracy are of fundamental importance. But our broad and balanced curriculum and extensive activity and extra-curricular programme means that visitors to the school finds the classrooms and playing fields buzzing with happy children engaged in purposeful activities.

The Prep School enjoys the advantage of sharing many of the impressive facilities of the Upper School, including the Chapel, Sports Complex and Dining Hall, whilst retaining the distinctive character and identity of its own site within the College campus. Contact with staff from other areas of the College greatly enhances the quality of experience here and adds to the sense of continuity, which we believe to be so important.

It is my intention that Liverpool College Preparatory School should build on the excellent foundations laid in the Pre Prep. I want all of our boys and girls to develop lively, independent and enquiring minds, to know that they attend a school that cares about them as individuals and that their home and school are working closely together to give them a first class start in life.

The staff and I look forward to working closely with you to provide your children with an education of excellence you would expect from Liverpool College.

Mr Stephen Buglass
Headmaster of the Preparatory School
