As a school we hold academic achievement in high regard. Every teacher at the Ursuline Preparatory School is firmly committed to the idea that positive reinforcement motivates a child to achieve to the best of their ability. This attitude is augmented by high teaching standards, designed to bring out the best in each and every child.

The Sunday Times’ Parent Power Independent Schools’ rankings are published annually. Once again, this year we have been rated in the top 100 Prep Schools for the whole country. We have been placed 27th. We are still the only school in the East of England that has been in the top 100 since the table was initiated approximately 19 years ago; this highlights the consistency of our academic success.
All this is achieved by the hard work and dedication from all those involved within school, (staff, parents and of course the children). It is a fantastic achievement for a school that prides itself on being non-selective.
