Welcome to Leicester's Oldest Prep School (circa 1886)
For 125 years, Leicester Prep School, Leicester's oldest prep school, has been synonymous with the highest quality of traditional academic excellence.
The School started its life as Stoneygate College in 1886 and we are proud to retain this latter group name.
The School is housed in a purpose built building and retains many of its historical links.
Our school is a small, family friendly school, housed in one building, for boys and girls of ages 3 to 11 years. The school has over the years developed an enviable reputation for developing the individual child and for providing a happy family atmosphere that Children love. The School also provides excellent academic results. Our children acquire a love of learning and achieve academic success without the feeling of being pressurised into succeeding. The school is situated in the heart of the prestigious Stoneygate area of Leicester, on the south side of the city, close to Leicester University and hospitals and within a few minutes of the city centre.
Choosing the right school for any child is a difficult and major decision. So many factors are involved, but academic success and the "feel" of the school should be top of the list. The atmosphere is open and friendly and we encourage children to develop their self-confidence by introducing them to a broad curriculum incorporating traditional values and modern teaching methods. Our curriculum stretches well beyond national guidelines and is designed to enable all children to achieve their best, both in academic terms and in their personal and social development. Arts and sport are given equal importance with academic subjects.
