Welcome to Alpha Preparatory School

Ethos of the School

Family atmosphere

Many parents think of Alpha as an extension of their own family. They trust our staff to look after their children and they know our pastoral care is second to none


Experienced staff

At Alpha, we have a stable, experienced and well-qualified staff. Several members of staff are parents or former parents of the school. Pupils often talk about how kind and approachable their teachers are, and how much they enjoy their lessons.


A school run by parents, for parents

Alpha is owned by its parents, who are members of Alpha Preparatory School Ltd. This means that the school is run like a building society, for the good of its members, rather than like a bank, which exists to make a profit for its shareholders. In practice, almost everyone on the Board is a past or present parent.
