If this is your first contact with the school, I hope it will give you a flavour of what the children do here on a day to day basis.
At Stafford Prep we cater for children from four to eleven years of age. Most of our pupils go on to join Stafford Grammar at the end of Year 6, but we also prepare children for entry to other independent and maintained senior schools.
Our philosophy at SPS is quite straightforward. If children enjoy coming to school and have a wide range of activities to look forward to, then we will get the best out of them in and out of the classroom. Stafford Preparatory School challenges all its pupils to reach their potential in their academic work, in sport, in music and in a host of other curricular and extra curricular activities. We also place a strong emphasis on high standards of behaviour and care for others.
In September, 2014 we welcomed children of Reception age for the first time. They are taught in an attractive and well resourced two classroom unit for Reception and Year 1 pupils, with its own covered outdoor area and adventure playground.

With the opening of a Reception Class in September, 2014, SPS now accepts children from the age of 4.
