Our Virtual Visit will give you a brief insight as to all we can offer your daughter. Please listen to Mrs Gee’s welcome and watch the video which accompanies it as well as viewing the Virtual Tour which showcases our facilities.

Please also take time to browse our website to see how much Bowdon Preparatory School has to offer each, and every, child. It reflects the energy, vibrancy and fun we have here, staff and students alike and provides a flavour of what makes our school truly unique and very special.

Our Reception students are given the freedom in which to grow, learn and play. We provide a wide range of activities to motivate and inspire them in both our spacious indoor and outdoor learning areas. The classrooms are bright, airy and decorated with the girls’ work, celebrating their successes and reflecting the diversity within the curriculum.

Our passionate and experienced team recognise that every girl is unique. They work hard to build a trusting relationship with each child, which enables the girls to socialise, build confidence and embrace school life. Through a breadth of opportunities, our Reception students are encouraged to engage actively in order to develop inquisitive minds, to explore their desire to discover and learn, and to begin their journey to become independent learners. We ensure that the skills essential for the core subjects have time to be embedded, and parental involvement is seen as key to a student’s success and happiness.

To find out more about Reception or to arrange a school visit, please contact Mrs Sharkey, our Admissions Officer, or Mrs Makepeace-Taylor, Head of Lower School, on 0161 928 0678 or email admissions@bowdonprep.org.uk

Virtual Tour

It all starts with a tour, an opportunity to talk to students, meet staff, experience the school in action to get a sense of what life at BPS is like and see what a BPS education has to offer.

We also have a wonderful 3D tour for you to explore from the comfort of your own home, prior to your visit. You can see the fantastic all-weather sports pitches by starting at the main entrance and turning 180°.
