Welcome to Meta Prep, your partner for selective senior school entry

Welcome to meta prep

Our vision is to be the complete solution and your partner for selective senior school entry. Meta Prep incorporates the best offered by prep schools, primary schools, tutoring and technology platforms under one, affordable roof for 11+ success. Our approach is designed to fully support families and pupils throughout their journey.

At Meta Prep, we want to ensure that preparing for senior school is a fun and enriching experience built on a strong foundation of learning principles. The goal is to get children thinking deeply, equipping them with a ‘metacognitive’ toolkit so that they understand how to learn and are set for life, able to sail through the 11+ and onto their next challenge with confidence. Our aim is for children to take ownership of their own learning, to know that their thinking is malleable and to understand their motivations in order to fulfil their true potential.

Parents can trust that their children have covered the key 11+ topics and are fully prepared for their target schools. We have drawn on our teaching team’s experience to identify the topics and skills for success in the senior school assessments. They are trained as ‘Cognitive Coaches,’ delivering lessons that use techniques and strategies to unlock the potential of their pupils.

Having worked in both the state and independent schools systems for over 15 years, I am acutely aware that the rise in fees and limited availability has made a prep school education out of reach for many of those who would love to offer its benefits to their children. We aim to provide that affordable alternative to prep school that works alongside a child’s current schooling.

We are building a school that provides a supportive community for fun, safe learning where all our pupils will flourish.
