More Affordable than you may think

As a member of the Wishford Group of school, Cricklade Manor Prep operates on the principle that exceptional education, with a broad range of opportunities and excellent outcomes, should not cost the earth. Fees start at £675 per month, including meals, which is the equivalent of many Nursery fees. We also run a scholarship programme for entry into Year 3 for particularly gifted children. To discover more, we would love to meet you and discuss any questions you may have on a personal tour of the school.

We’d love to welcome you for a visit

As well as our regular Open Day events, we welcome parents and children to visit us at any time of year for personal tours, where you’ll get the opportunity to see the school at work and play. Our Head, Guy Barrett, would also be delighted to talk with you on your visit to understand more about your child and what you are looking for.
