Meet The Head

Here at Culford Prep there are two things we want to see: happy children and an enthusiasm for learning.  And, I am delighted to say, at Culford Prep these are commonplace. Our ethos of mutual respect and friendliness between pupils and teachers creates the ideal atmosphere for teaching and learning.

Culford Prep: Exemplary Teachers

Such an ethos can only be achieved if the teachers are utterly committed to providing for the needs of the children and will, as a matter of course, go the extra mile for their pupils. In that respect Culford Prep are blessed. Our Common Room is filled with exemplary teachers who take their academic and pastoral responsibilities extremely seriously and who can, through their close relationships with the children in their care, offer help and support should it be required.

Culford Prep: Boarding

Many, around 50%, of Culford Prep School pupils choose to board, and it is easy to see why.  Our boarders enjoy a wide range of activities, including evening entertainment and weekend trips, in addition to having full access to Culford's impressive range of sports, art, music and drama facilities. And with the constant support of our House Master and House Mistresses, boarding really is a fun home-from-home.

Culford Prep: A Wealth of Opportunities

As with all of Culford School, Culford Prep is fortunate to have wealth of opportunities on its doorstep. Within Culford's 480 acres of beautiful parkland is our Sports & Tennis Centre with its 25m indoor pool and four indoor tennis courts, a music school, studio theatre, art and design centre and an Astroturf pitch. So whether your child is sporty, musical, dramatic or artistic in temperament, Culford Prep has everything to fuel their passions.
