About St Margaret's Prep School

St Margaret's  Prep is an independent day school for boys and girls aged 3-11 which was  established in 1873. We moved to our current premises in 1940 and have  gradually grown to what we are today – a happy and vibrant school of 200  pupils with broadly equal numbers of boys and girls.

The school has been extended over the years to provide light and  airy, purpose-built facilities including a Kindergarten for our 3-4 year  olds, thirteen well-equipped classrooms, exciting outdoor learning  areas including an outdoor classroom and wildlife garden, a languages  room for our children to learn both modern and classical languages,  music rooms and a soundproof studio, an art and design room, a high tech  computer suite equipped with iMacs, a beautiful library, a school hall  for assemblies, drama productions and music events and ‘Maggots’  after-school club; all facilitating opportunities for exploration of  every kind!

We share a 25 acre site with St Mary's, Calne and consequently our  children are fortunate enough to benefit from a wide range of facilities  not always available to prep school pupils. These include a 25m indoor  swimming pool, an all-weather surface Astroturf offering facilities for  hockey, tennis, football and lacrosse, on-site and off-site sports  pitches, Science laboratories, a purpose-built chapel used for Services,  concerts and a range of celebrations, a dining hall with full-time  catering staff, a theatre and a fully-staffed medical centre.

St Margaret's provides a happy and purposeful environment for all  children to explore within a friendly, caring community. We want our  children to be more than the sum of his or her academic achievement,  which is why we place just as much value on building self-confidence and  self-esteem, on encouraging self-assessment and personal organisation.  Our main aim is for our pupils to be inspired, not be afraid to take  risks and above all, have fun and enjoy learning.
