Headteacher's Welcome

On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I am proud to welcome you to Malcolm Arnold Preparatory School.


Our school motto is ‘Reaching for the moon’, (in Latin: summa celse tentanda) and we encourage all children to aim high and achieve their personal best in all that they do.


We hope that our children get the self-confidence with which to tackle life’s challenges: and we seek to encourage pupils to think and be creative as much as possible. We believe that education is about lighting the fires in one’s imagination and encouraging pupils to use their creativity to develop the skills they need to become a successful part of their community.


We are based on the Malcolm Arnold Campus and its facilities offer our pupils an exciting range of curricular and co-curricular opportunities in sports, the arts, languages and more. We work closely with the secondary school to share best practice and build strong ties between pupils and students.


Our school has strong links with the Diocese of Peterborough and is a Church of England school which is fully supportive of the Christian faith. However, our school values system transcends religion and we are fully inclusive of all faiths and none.


I look forward to welcoming you and your child to our wonderful school, where you can see our children enjoying themselves and reaching their full potential.


Simon Northcott



We are a Church of England School
