The Pre Prep
Ashdown opened its doors in September 2013 to its first pre preppers. The 6s (as they have come to be known) are looked after by Mrs Clarke, the former head of pre prep at Fonthill Lodge. After a couple of excellent years within the main school building, they moved to wonderful new premises - still in the grounds but very much their own 'space' and fantastically situated so they can benefit from all our facilities.
As well as all the normal lessons they enjoy all the benefits of being in the heart of a busy prep school. Swimming, dance, tennis, music, games and drama are all part of their extra curricular programme – as well as adventures in the 40 acres of school grounds (you would need to be relaxed about often collecting a muddied child at the end of the day!).
