Vita Et Pax Preparatory School

Headteacher welcome

Welcome to Vita et Pax Preparatory school where education is based on nurturing excellence. The school has a long tradition of excellence in shaping attitudes for learning and an environment for achievement. Our students give of their best while their peers and teachers providing a supportively competitive environment. High academic achievement is not the result of intense pressure but through creating the environment where continual practice focused on improvement drives achievement.

The curriculum we offer is as broad as it is deep. Our students are taught to seek and critique information, they are not spoon fed it. Teaching feeds upon shared experiences to build pathways of understanding our world. Our curriculum interlinks so the core strengths of English and Maths extend throughout all subject areas. Taking calculated risk and making mistakes are as important a part of learning as is the ability to present confidently in front of an audience.

Fostering parent partnership is core to our operation. When families enter our school, they become a part of the community. We communicate openly. We think and act in the shared interest of developing successful global citizens.

A key part of our culture is shared responsibility. We open the hearts and minds of our students to the realities of our world from homelessness to disaster relief, our students understand their place in a global society. Our students bring their authentic selves to school each day. Their diversity in thought, belief, identity and culture are celebrated as a normative part of our school. Development is personal and our students flourish in the attention our small school provides.

Our independent school is exactly that in nature. The personal relationship that we share with our families allows room for tailored experiences and opportunities for embedding moral values.

Vita et Pax Preparatory School is a wonderful environment for learning and development.
