About Heywood Prep

Located in the heart of Corsham, Wiltshire, the school is housed in a beautiful Grade II listed Georgian building constructed in 1776. Heywood Prep educates boys and girls from age 2 to 11. At the end of Year 6, the majority of children leave for independent senior schools in Bath and Wiltshire, many winning awards and scholarships. At present, we have approximately 260 children on roll.

Heywood Prep is a happy school which produces caring, thoughtful children. The staff place great emphasis on nurturing and developing the talents of each pupil, encouraging them to have open and enquiring minds which will equip them to thrive in the next stage of their education. Academic standards are high and there is a strong commitment to encouraging all pupils to experience a range of extra-curricular activities. Personal development is encouraged through excellent pastoral care. Socially, numerous activities are enjoyed by the children including sport, music and drama.
