A welcome from the Head of Prep
Welcome to the JAPS website, which is intended to give you a flavour of the education the girls experience at our school. At the Pre-Prep (Reception to Year 2) and Prep (Year 3-6) we offer an exceptionally high quality of education provided by a team of skilled, motivated, and dedicated teachers and support staff. The curriculum is broad and well balanced and enriched by a varied and interesting programme of extra-curricular clubs and activities.
Throughout the school we promote an atmosphere where a high level of achievement is valued. We foster the values of hard work, commitment, kindness and generosity. We aim to create a sense of happiness and warmth in which girls are motivated to work and play to the best of their abilities. Both inside and outside the classroom, we generate a sense of vitality based on the principle that learning is fun. Our pupils are refreshingly independent-minded and open-hearted. We teach children to think for themselves and they flourish academically because they learn to trust their own judgement. This is a warm-hearted community where enjoyment is an essential part of the school day and where each child feels valued, happy and stimulated.
JAPS is a very happy community where there is an absolute commitment to providing the children with first-class pastoral care.
I hope that you will come to visit us so that we can show you around our community at JAPS.
