Welcome to Brookham Pre-prep
Welcome to Brookham, an independent pre-prep for boys and girls aged from 2-8 years. We’re located in wonderful 175-acre grounds in Liphook, within the South Downs National Park, and welcome families from across Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex. The children that join us benefit from small class sizes and high staff-to-children ratios which gift our teachers the time to develop each individual child, helping them build the foundations to becoming courageous and independent life-long learners.

Brookham Pre-prep provides children with a magical start to their education. Our knowledgeable and dedicated team of staff are passionate about delivering the very best pre-prep education for children aged 2-8. They take our children on an amazing educational adventure that, due to its breadth and creativity, is hard to match. With a belief that one should never underestimate the capabilities of young children and a supportive and nurturing environment, there are no limits to what our young people can achieve.
Whether charging around on the sports pitches, performing on stage or in a concert, seeing their work in an art exhibition, collaborating in Forest School or beavering away in class, all our children become confident, independent learners with a thirst for knowledge and a willingness to take risks. We give our children the tools to investigate the world around them rather than the answers to learn. We encourage the children to ask questions and to think and solve problems for themselves. The skills that Brookham Pre-prep instils will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
The only way to get a real sense of what we achieve is to take the next step and come and visit us at one of our Open Mornings or Personalised Visits. It is only then that you will appreciate how special a school Brookham Pre-prep really is. I can assure you that a warm welcome awaits you.
Seeing the Brookham children jump into wellies and waterproof trousers in record time and charge out to break was fabulous
During their final year at Brookham, children are readied for the next stage of their education. If they are moving up to Highfield Prep School, then this will, of course, be a simple step, as the grounds, facilities and many of the teachers will already be familiar to them. During their final year, we provide further opportunities to familiarise children with Highfield. Year 3 children use ‘Moving Up Day’ in the Summer Term to get an exciting early feel for life in Year 4. This helps dispel any anxiety and readies the children for this big and important step in September.
Should families make the decision to transfer their child to an alternative school, then we work with and support parents to make the right educational choice for their child and their family, as well as preparing the child for any entry assessments that may be necessary.
By the end of their time at Brookham, the children will have developed into courageous learners and are eager and ready to take the next steps on their educational path.
