The Westholme journey starts here!

In today’s rapidly changing and demanding world it is important that children, from an early age, should have a breadth of opportunity to develop their abilities and potential while enjoying the benefit of a caring, structured and secure environment. We believe that such a blend of opportunity and challenge exists at Westholme Prep.

From 4 years, boys and girls are welcomed into our Reception located at our Lower Prep. This is where we lay the foundation stones for a lifelong love of learning. Your child will be cherished, cared for and stimulated by our experienced staff. Reception at Westholme is a supportive, stable and caring environment where the focus is on your child.

“We are delighted with how our daughter has settled into Westholme and already we can see such a difference in her confidence and enthusiasm for school”.

The Infant years for children are vital in terms of developing both attitude and aptitude. Expectations are high, care is continuous and learning is fun. When girls and boys embark upon the next stage of their Westholme journey, they are competent readers and communicators, in the written and spoken word. Perhaps most importantly though, they are happy and self-assured individuals, entirely ready to make the transition to Upper Prep. As a school we strive to be the best we can and this reflects the high quality education we offer and our constant desire to improve.

In essence, Westholme Lower Prep is a unique and dynamic environment which offers all children the opportunity to develop a love for learning and enjoy a rich tapestry of educational experiences, helping them build a firm foundation for their future.

New Prep Opening Ceremony

Wednesday 16 November, 2022

On Wednesday 16 November, we were delighted to welcome a plethora of guests to Westholme for the official Opening of our Prep. It was a momentous day in the history of the school, and we were delighted that we could welcome back Alumna Professor Sophie Scott CBE to cut the ribbon and officially proclaim the new Prep building open! After years of planning and building work it was fantastic to see the project finished, and great to see the vision of bringing all Westholme students between the ages of 4 – 18 years together onto the same site at Wilmar Lodge come to fruition.
