Prestwich Preparatory School was established in 1977 by Estelle Friesner to cater for the educational requirements of her then 9 year old son.
She recognised that for those parents wishing their children to have a head start at senior school aged 11 a rigorous grounding in the 3Rs was essential.
Since then, we still place great emphasis on a good educational grounding but we also focus on the childrens’ pastoral care as well as computer studies, sports, games, history, geography, science and arts and crafts.
At heart, however, PPS is still a small private school with a lovely nurturing, family atmosphere whose primary goal is to secure places for our children at one of the local Grammar Schools or to entry into a top stream of a local state funded school.
