Welcome to Vita et Pax Preparatory School, a long established Catholic Independent Day School and Nursery, for boys and girls aged 3-11, which welcomes pupils from all religious backgrounds. Outstanding judgements in all areas from the Independent Schools Inspectorate and from the Diocese of Westminster were a cause for celebration during the schools 75th anniversary.
Vita et Pax is a popular school where we aim to give each child the best possible start to school life. Our dedicated and well qualified staff, nurture pupils in a disciplined and caring way, with a strong emphasis on self-regulation and personal responsibility.
We have very high expectations of our pupils, and our teaching programmes are designed to challenge each pupil to experience success at their level. This was borne out in the “Outstanding” Inspection report in June 2011 and in the annual transition destinations to prestigious senior schools.
Additionally we provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities, competition, visiting speakers and frequent excursions adding to the culturally-rich environment. In order to sample the ethos and atmosphere of our school please come along on an Open Morning or make an appointment to see me during the term.
Mrs M. O’Connor Headmistress
