Life at


At King’s School Rochester’s Pre-Preparatory School, we pride ourselves on the level of individual care and attention we give each child in order for them to have a happy and memorable start to school.

Our children benefit from learning in a well-resourced, bright and vibrant purpose-built Pre-Preparatory School building and play area, with a teacher and teaching assistant in every room, set within the School’s beautiful grounds.

You will find our small classes are the ideal context for children to do their best. We encourage them to take pride in all they do, to achieve their goals and have fun whilst they learn. One of the things that sets us apart from other local schools and nurseries, is our forward-thinking approach to languages. In the Pre-Preparatory School, we begin to teach German in the Nursery and then proceed onto a daily lesson from Reception. We find, at this prime age, children take to the language very quickly, while also gaining an awareness of another culture. Our children also benefit from specialist teachers in Music and Sport.

Our school recognises the need for all our children to discover their talents and skills, and fulfil their potential through a wide range of curricular and co-curricular opportunities.

In addition to the teacher-led after school clubs, which change termly, we also have a broad range of clubs taught by specialists such as Martial Arts, Ballet, Cheerleading and Yoga. There is an opportunity to receive individual music tuition from Year 2. Christian beliefs and values underpin our school ethos and philosophy; we strive to provide a happy, caring, friendly, safe and exciting environment for our children. To continue providing the best possible education for King’s pupils, the School integrates Digital Learning across the three schools.

We would love you to come and experience the energy and exuberance, warmth and wonder that is a daily part of life at King’s Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School.
