Clarendon Cottage

Preparatory School

Welcome from the Head

I would like to warmly welcome you to our excellent school. Our aim at Clarendon Cottage is to enable every child to realise their true potential by offering a nurturing, family atmosphere that provides excellent teaching, outstanding pastoral care and plentiful opportunities for your child to develop and flourish. Working together, we can achieve this.  Whether you are choosing our school to prep your child for secondary school examinations or to give them the best possible start to their educational journey in their formative years before entering mainstream education, our thorough, diverse curriculum and high expectations enables all children to achieve their aspirations. Our children are highly successful in gaining entry to their choice of secondary school. The experienced teachers work closely with families throughout the juniors to that support this transition fully. Our passion at Clarendon Cottage Prep School is ensuring that children become lifelong learners who are inquisitive, independent and resilient from an early age. We want children to love their schooling and be active and engaged in what they are learning. By delivering this we have productive and purposeful classrooms where the children have the space to explore ideas and extend their knowledge and understanding fully. A huge strength of our school is the family feel throughout our setting. All teachers know every child and can offer guidance and support. Alongside this every child knows every other child in their school. This has a huge positive impact on our children’s behaviour and ensures that it really is an environment that they feel safe, secure and happy in. Our children have a real sense of pride and belonging in their school and always represent us beautifully during educational excursions as well as showing outstanding sportsmanship at sporting events. Deciding where to educate your child is an important choice, we know that you will be very pleased in your decision to join us. We hope that you enjoyed visiting our website and that it gave you a sneak peek into what life at our fantastic school is like. Please come a visit us, call our school secretary Miss Greatbanks on 0161 950 7868 to book a meeting and visit with myself. If you have any questions or wish to discuss anything further please do not hesitate to contact us. Yours sincerely, Miss E Bagnall Head of Prep School
