About Us

Broadening horizons, reaching for the moon!

We are a new state-funded primary preparatory school, which opened in September 2014 for reception pupils.

In September 2016 we moved into our brand new, purpose-built school building, which is located on the Malcolm Arnold Academy Campus. To keep up to date with everything going on in our school, please contact the office or follow us on Twitter @MAPrepSchool

Our school is committed to ensuring that our children not only excel in the classroom, but also gain the skills and passions to enable them to be successful long into their futures.


We focus on positive behaviour management systems and promote the values we would like our children to embody through our MAPS Code of Conduct. Our code is simple and well-understood, even by Reception children:


*Make kind choices


*Aim high; seek new challenges


*Persevere; always try your best


*Show respect and good manners 


We are a Church of England School
