The Preparatory School is accommodated in a magnificent Norman Shaw designed mansion house that was built in 1888. This building houses the library, chapel, art room, music and French departments, plus the School Office. It has been extended to provide classrooms for the Pre-Preparatory department on the lower floor, and specialist subject teaching facilities for the Preparatory School on the upper floor. These include a modern IT suite and well-equipped science laboratories.
