Aims and Ethos

Sedbergh Prep School develops happy, confident children with a ‘can-do’ attitude; independent yet always with a sense of team before self. Through careful and sensitive teaching, we aim to foster a spirit of adventure, both inside and outside the classroom.

Our curriculum is ambitious and equips pupils with the necessary skills for future success, yet is delivered in a setting of timeless beauty where pupils have the space and time to enjoy their childhood.

Our Ways of the Wolf describe the core values that shape our behaviour: ambition, collaboration, courage, creativity, kindness, and responsibility.

A keen sense of community and heritage is shared throughout the School, both amongst boarders and day pupils. Pupils moving into the Senior School are made ready for the next chapter, though all our pupils leave their mark on the world, wherever that may be.
