Bringing together two of Norfolk’s independent prep schools has created a new future for pupils and teachers
IT HAS been an exciting time at Langley Preparatory School at Taverham Hall, with lots of changes for pupils and staff. It was announced earlier in the year that two of Norfolk’s independent preparatory schools – Langley Prep in Norwich and Taverham Hall - had agreed to join forces in a bid to accelerate their goal of being recognised within the top tier of independent education in the UK.
The new school – based in the 100-acre parkland estate at Taverham Hall – officially took effect in September.
Headmaster Mike Crossley says: “Since September, an additional 100 children now attend our outstanding day school for boys and girls, aged two to 13, where weekly/flexi boarding is an option. Children flourish in the school’s vibrant, warm and friendly atmosphere. The school has made an excellent transition and was recently awarded the NACE Challenge Award for its outstanding provision for more able pupils, in addition to receiving its second Gold Schools Games Mark for our commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport.”
There are various options for those considering choosing the school, whether as day pupils or boarders, and scholarships are on offer.
The headmaster says the best way to learn more about the school and whether it is right for your child is for parents to pay a visit.
“Scholarships are available for children aged seven to 11 in the areas of music, sport, academic and art, and our first Saturday open morning was a great success,” Mike says.
