Welcome from the Headmaster

Aysgarth Prep School is a thriving community that provides boys with a homely environment in which to develop their potential. We act as 'parents' to the boys, with the support of a caring and dedicated team. We try to ensure that every boy is looked after and flourishing in every respect, working in partnership with their parents.

Our aim is to prepare boys for the leading boarding schools in the country, and we aim to stretch every boy to make the most of their abilities in small groups and classes, whatever the activity. Alongside this ambition, we want boys to feel valued for who they are and to develop a respect and concern for others.

We believe that boarding provides tremendous benefits to those boys and parents who are willing to commit themselves to it. The breadth of opportunities and the time to enjoy them is a great advantage, with staff on hand to provide supervision and encouragement, and friends to add that extra dimension of fun! There is also an intensity of activity and ambition, which stimulates boys to be get involved, whether in the classroom, on the games pitches, in music, creative arts or in their ability to get along with others.

Day boys also benefit by being a part of this community and are able to participate in almost every aspect of the school’s life. There is also scope for a gradual build up to boarding.

Aysgarth is a Christian environment in which the boys’ faith is encouraged and that they will develop values that will underpin their development in later life.
