Basic Information & Location
Wycliffe Prep School based in Gloucestershire, UK is an independent preparatory school for pupils aged 4-13 years.
Wycliffe believes that children give their best when they are happy. It encourages humour and confidence, kindness and pride. Its emphasis is on effort. If the effort is right, the achievement takes care of itself. Children are encouraged to do their best, whether inside or outside the classroom.
Wycliffe aims to deliver a curriculum which encourages pupils to achieve their academic, spiritual, social, physical and creative potential. As a result, the Wycliffe Baccalaureate has been created. The Wycliffe Baccalaureate is an exciting innovation, which sets the school apart from many other Prep Schools. Pupils follow the outline of the National Curriculum, yet is adapted and extended to meet the needs of all of our pupils, including those with SEND and those recognised as Gifted & Talented.
Boarding / Pastoral Care
Girls’ boarders enjoy staying in Windrush House which is very cosy with a colour scheme, accessories and furniture chosen by the girls. There is a comfortable sitting room with satellite TV, DVD player, board games and computers. The boys’ house – Pennwood House, is a purpose-built house and also boasts large amounts of room and great facilities for the boys to enjoy including a common room, a computer workroom and a games room. Both of prep boarding houses are within the Wycliffe grounds and take advantage of the outstanding facilities offered at the preparatory school including Tennis Courts, Astro pitches and extensive games areas.
Sport at Wycliffe is part of the timetabled day through the delivery of PE and Games lessons. There is an excellent fixture list in a range of team sports for boys (Rugby, Football and Cricket) and girls (Hockey, Netball, Tennis and Rounders). In addition to this there is a varied activity programme available for pupils to pursue different activities. Music is part of everyday life at Wycliffe. All children sing in assemblies and participate in a weekly hymn practise, and every child benefits from specialist classroom teaching in tutor groups. The team of Visiting Music Teachers currently teach over 150 weekly individual lessons on a wide variety of instruments, from Ukulele to Harp.
