Our aim is to encourage applications from children with as diverse a range of backgrounds as possible. This enriches our community and is vital in preparing our pupils for today’s world. Stafford Preparatory School is committed to equal treatment for all, regardless of a child’s race, ethnicity, religion, or social background.

In order to cope with the academic and social demands of Stafford Preparatory School, pupils should be confident English speakers. If tuition in English as an Additional Language (EAL) is required, this can be arranged at the parent’s expense.
