Welcome to Heywood Prep

Heywood Prep is a caring, friendly community in which happy children discover a love of learning and the confidence to fulfil their potential.

We are an independent prep school and nursery, for boys and girls aged two to eleven, located in the heart of Corsham, Wiltshire, with two acres of beautiful gardens where children play, explore and learn.

At the heart of our ethos is learning tailored to every child, and this is built into the curriculum through our Individualised Learning sessions. In this way, children at every level are supported, enthused and challenged to broaden their interests, maximise their learning and achieve their very best. With opportunities ranging from the academic and the arts to entrepreneurship and leadership challenges, our children benefit from an outstanding team of committed and imaginative teachers.

“A very professional and inspiring school, which my wife and I believe will help our children flourish.”

Our most recent inspection report described us as ‘a welcoming, friendly and open community. As a result of feeling safe and well looked after, pupils thrive and challenge themselves to reach their full potential.’

The Heywood family extends beyond staff and children to parents and siblings, creating a lively and social community, with many events organised by the wonderful Friends of Heywood.

I warmly invite you to visit us to experience first hand our lively, nurturing atmosphere.
