Welcome to St Neot's Prep School

Jonathan Slot, Headmaster

It is my absolute pleasure to welcome you to the St Neot’s website. Thank you for taking the time to visit us today.

Our school is a wonderful community of supportive and like-minded parents; dedicated and skilled teachers; experienced and hands-on Governors and most importantly, charming, happy and smiling children. We believe passionately in providing a broad, engaging and enjoyable education that is bursting with opportunity and joy.

At St Neot’s, education is built around five key pillars. These are central to everything we do and ensure that every child in our care receives the very best educational experience possible:

Community: Coming to St Neot’s is to join a warm and welcoming community for parents and children alike. We are non-selective and co-educational throughout, and everyone is welcome, aged 2 to 13. We actively encourage the parent body to come on site for regular coffee mornings, the odd tennis match and of course, for all school events. New parents will soon feel part of the St Neot’s family.

Values: We are a school driven by core family values. Our children are kind, polite, respectful and hard working. These attributes are as important to us as any exam result and our pupils excel in these areas.

The Outdoors: We are determined that our children not only learn outdoors but learn about the outdoors. We have an amazing 70-acre site and outdoor learning is a timetabled subject throughout the school. All children are encouraged to play in the woods at every opportunity and overnight campouts are a regular feature from Year 4.

Ambition: We are unapologetically ambitious for every child in our care and also for the school as a whole. We are determined to provide the very best provision we can. Our amazing facilities are a reflection of our commitment to continually seeking the very best for our children.

Fun: A St Neot’s education is full of fun and good humour. Our children and staff love coming into school. Drop-off is always full of smiles, laughter and enthusiasm for the day ahead. A child having fun is a child who is going to learn.

The St Neot’s way is a successful one. Our children leave for some of the most prestigious day and boarding senior schools, often with a scholarship award. They arrive as well rounded, charming, interested and intellectually curious young women and men. Heads of senior schools comment on how the St Neot’s cohort stand out from the crowd.

I am hugely proud of all the staff and the children at St Neot’s and the highlight of my week is showing off the school to prospective parents. Please get in touch with our Admissions Department at admissions@stneotsprep.co.uk or on 0118 9739650, if you would like a tour. It will give you the chance to meet the real stars of the show, the St Neot’s children.

I look forward to welcoming you soon.
