Bowdon Preparatory School for Girls is an established, highly successful independent day school for girls aged 3–11 years. We have an excellent reputation for academic achievement and provide the best environment for your daughter at each stage of their primary education. Our pupils thrive in a warm and nurturing environment that allows them to grow in confidence and gain independence. They achieve outstanding grades and acquire fundamental life skills, which prepare them for senior school education.
Mathematics is regarded as a subject of supreme importance for girls at Bowdon Prep. We aim to give every pupil the mastery of arithmetic that is required for adult life.
Early reading skills are taught in a structured way, using phonics and graded reading schemes, and they are further developed through the use of library books.
We feel the study of science should provide enjoyment and pleasure in discovery and give the girls confidence to approach information critically.
There are designated rooms for science, music, art, design and technology, and information and communication technology, and we cater for individual needs.
