On behalf of the Governors, Staff, and Pupils, I warmly welcome you to Vita et Pax Preparatory School, a long established Catholic Co-Educational Independent Day School and Nursery for ages 3-11 years. We are a Catholic school with a strong Christian ethos; we value the uniqueness of each individual and therefore we also welcome children of all faiths and cultures. This warm, openness to all helps to enrich the unique atmosphere of the School and fosters a friendly, caring and vibrant community that pursues excellence on every level. Our pupils are happy, courteous, confident, articulate young people, committed to the ideal of service to others.
At Vita et Pax we work in partnership with Parents/Carers and consider ourselves to be very privileged that they have entrusted us with the care and education of their child. Our pupils are encouraged to develop new skills surrounded by an inclusive learning environment based on a Catholic ethos of compassion, love and respect. We are dedicated to offering a broad, balanced, creative and challenging curriculum, enriched by experiences and opportunities that enhance and consolidate the learning process. Specialist subject teaching and small class sizes enable our team of highly qualified, committed and enthusiastic teachers to be responsive to the needs of the individual child, ensuring continuity and progression for all our pupils. By offering a wide range of extra-curricular activities, we enrich and broaden our pupils’ experience.
Our pupils enjoy coming to school, are motivated by their successes and become confident, resilient citizens. Why not come and see for yourself how Vita et Pax stands out from the crowd?
Throughout the year we offer Open Days to suit all schedules so please come along to sample the ethos and atmosphere of the school or make an appointment during term time when I will be delighted to show you around.
