Prep School of the Year Award 2024

We are delighted to share that Heywood Prep has been shortlisted by ‘Independent School Parent’ for the ‘Prep School of the Year Award 2024’. This acknowledgement is a wonderful testament to the hard work and enthusiasm of our teachers, the efforts of our pupils, and the support from our parents and community. This nomination reflects our dedication to providing an outstanding education and a nurturing environment for all our pupils.

We are especially pleased to have our individualised learning programme recognised in this way. Every day, for 30 minutes, pupils move into small, mixed-year group classes to attend lessons that meet their specific needs, such as music theory, robotics, archaeology, sign language and working memory. Our small size enables us to offer this tailored approach that allows each child to reach their individual potential.

Headmaster Mr Tim O’Connell said, “We are proud to be in the company of other excellent schools and look forward to the final results. Thank you to ‘Independent School Parent’ for this honour and to everyone in the Heywood Prep family for your continued support.

To learn more about how a Heywood Prep education could help your child reach their potential, we invite you to book a spot at our Autumn Term Open Morning using the link below. Alternatively, you can contact our Registrar, Mrs Niki Wigram, at She will be happy to help you.
