    Mr Phil Foley, Prep School Headmaster
    Mr Foley will be happy to chat to you about any aspect of your child's education.
    "Kimbolton Prep is a friendly, busy school with a distinctive family atmosphere. Traditional values such as good manners are as important as good marks and we believe in fostering a strong partnership with parents so that the responsibility for each child’s education and development is shared."
    Mr Oliver Stokes, Senior Deputy Head (DSL)
    Mr Stokes is available to discuss any aspect of our pastoral care and safeguarding provision.
    "Our small class and tutor group sizes mean that we can deliver very personal care to our pupils.  Everyone is recognised and known, teachers work together to ensure that pupils are correctly supported, and we encourage a real sense of community that many families feel extends well beyond our gates."
    Mrs Rachael Lambert, Deputy Head (Academic)
    Mrs Lambert can provide further information on our curriculum and other academic matters.
    "We give our pupils as broad and balanced an education as possible with Art, Design and Technology, Drama, Music, Modern Foreign Languages, Games, Swimming and Physical Education all taught by specialist teachers from an early age."
    Mr Andrew Groom, Head of Prep Music
    Mr Groom would be delighted to chat to you about how your child might benefit from our music and drama provision.
    "Alongside curriculum music, we offer a mix of ensembles, groups, and performance opportunities for all abilities. Individual tuition starts at Year 3, with the exception of Stringlets and Ministrings (Years 1 and 2), which give an early experience of the violin."
    Mr Tommy Evans, Head of Prep Sports
    Mr Evans oversees curriculum sport, including competitive fixtures, as well as after-school sports provision.
    "Our ethos is to encourage in every pupil a passion for sport and an ‘active life’ attitude, whilst instilling the values of sportsmanship and a positive team spirit in a competitive environment. Our facilities include netball and tennis courts , indoor and outdoor cricket nets, a 25m indoor swimming pool and two full sized astroturf pitches."
    Mrs Anna Edwards, EYFS Lead teacher 
    Mrs Edwards can give an insight into life in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 - based in the Lower Prep's Aragon House.
    "Our colourful Lower Prep classrooms offer a perfect place to flourish and learn with the support of a caring and encouraging team. We offer an enhanced Early Years and KS1 curriculum, with specialist teaching in Music, French, Spanish, PE and swimming."

    Mrs Storm Butler, Year 3 Teacher
    Mrs Butler is a Year 3 teacher, who also oversees our educational trips and visits programme.

    "Life in the Upper Prep (Years 3-6) is a welcoming, nurturing ‘home from home’ environment where individuality is valued and unique strengths recognised and celebrated. Our tutor and House system is strong – we pride ourselves in really ‘knowing’ our children."

    Mrs Caroline Evans, Year 6 Teacher and Head of Activities and Enrichment
    Mrs Evans is available to discuss our extra-curricular provision, as well as pupils' transition from Prep to Senior School.

    "I am extremely proud of the range and scope of our extra-curricular provision. We run in excess of 40 clubs per week, spanning a broad spectrum of interests – musical, artistic, sporting, linguistic, STEM, and reading to name just a few."
