Individual Attention in Small Classes: Our class sizes are small, and we have no combined age groups, which allows teachers to give every child the support they need, with no danger of anyone slipping under the radar in a busy classroom.

Outstanding Outcomes: Our children’s achievements speak for themselves, with many gaining places at grammar school, including the highly competitive Pates School in Cheltenham. All children applying for independent senior school secured places.

Specialist Teaching Staff: An outstanding team of teaching staff is our greatest asset, chosen and developed to provide the best possible learning opportunities for our children. Each member of staff is highly experienced and enthusiastic about their subject.

Wrap-around childcare: We understand the pressures of family life, juggling work and parenthood. Families can take advantage of wrap-around care, from 7.30 am-6 pm, with a choice of exciting after-school clubs and holiday clubs for the children to enjoy.

Exceptional Facilities: We have fully equipped STEAM and Science Labs, a LEGO and Technology Studio, a large sports hall, and 8 acres of amazing outdoor space – encompassing sports fields, play areas and an exciting Forest School.

Convenient Location: Cricklade Manor Prep School & Nursery is located in the heart of the pretty Saxon town of Cricklade, within easy reach of Swindon and Cirencester.

Opportunities: Within and beyond the curriculum, we allow every child to discover whatever it is that will motivate and inspire them – from the yearly Science Spectacular and school productions, to children gaining positions of responsibility, and our dynamic after-school clubs. We have outstanding STEAM, Art and Music departments, which includes our fantastic LEGO and Technology Studio. Sport is a particular strength, given plenty of time in the curriculum.

More affordable than you may think: Cricklade Manor Prep operates on the principle that exceptional education, with a broad range of opportunities and excellent outcomes, should not cost the earth.
