Final Reception Places Available

Welcome to Heywood Prep, a caring, vibrant and high-achieving school for boys and girls aged 2-11, nestled in the beautiful surroundings of Corsham, Wiltshire, near Bath.

We believe in creating a school experience where children thrive because they’re happy. Our goal is to make learning exciting and fulfilling for every child who walks through our gates. Reception at Heywood isn’t just about starting ‘big school’; it’s about embarking on a journey filled with adventure and discovery.

We aim to create an environment where children wake up eager to come to school, knowing they’ll have fun while learning and playing. Our goal is to instil confidence and excitement about learning while helping each child reach their individual potential.

Our early years curriculum goes beyond reading and writing. We lay the foundation for problem-solving and collaboration through our discovery-based learning approach. We often start topic lessons with a question, which helps the children engage more deeply. Reception children also begin to learn coding, Spanish and French, and enjoy specialist sports, music, art, and forest school lessons.

A Heywood education is holistic, nurturing curiosity, creativity, and growth in every child. We celebrate every success, big or small, and encourage children to explore, ask questions, and learn from mistakes.

We still have a few places left for Reception 2024, so if you’re interested in how Heywood Prep can help your child thrive, we invite you to join us for a personal tour with our Headmaster, Tim O’Connell, or attend our Open Week, Monday 3rd to Friday 7th June 2024.
