Start your journey with Bowdon Prep at our Open Day, 23rd March 2019

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step 

Lao Tzu

Choosing the right school for your daughter is one of the most important decisions you can make as a family. We invite you to start the journey with us at our Open Day on Saturday 23rd March. It's a chance to see Bowdon Preparatory School (BPS) in action and to gain an understanding about our learning environment, values, goals and our ambitions for every pupil. You can also meet our pupils and talk to them about their Bowdon Prep journey, as well as those who have just moved on to secondary school.

Our doors will be open from 10.30am to 12.30pm and we're offering a wide range of exciting activities and opportunities, including: 

  • Our Learning Journey Treasure Hunt- explore our broad curriculum by exploring the class work and the projects our girls have been working on
  • Our Reasoning Workshop- see how our pupils develop their skills from Y3 upwards - preparing them both for secondary school admission and for the 21st century world of work
  • Our Art Workshop and Photobooth - create a unique piece of artwork and have your picture taken with it

You can also let our netball team coach you to score a goal, listen to our choir and orchestra and act in our drama workshop

Mrs Gee, our Headmistress, shares her key reasons why prospective parents should choose Bowdon Prep:

  • Shared values - belief, perseverance and success

At Bowdon Prep, our mission is to empower girls to believe in themselves, and to persevere and succeed in all that they do. BPS doesn't just stand for Bowdon Preparatory School, it also represents our values of Belief, Perseverance and Success. This means we instil in our girls buckets of self-esteem, determination, responsibility and pride, which in turn, leads them to celebrate successes - large and small.

  • A positive journey of growth and development

Parents should see Bowdon Prep as offering a supportive, nurturing environment for their daughter in which they will grow and develop. Girls become part our family, where they are known, understood and supported as individuals. Our girls are purposely allowed the time to explore the challenges of growing up, and we ensure they have a stable and structured environment within which to develop their talents.

  • High standards 

We are proud of our high standards at BPS. On a day to day basis, we encourage good behaviour through cultivating an environment which nurtures manners, respect, tidiness, punctuality, kindness and production of the best work. We are not afraid to push standards continually and our girls enjoy being in a happy school as a result. 

We take girls from Kindergarten to Y6, with places available in some year groups for 2019 and 2020 entry. Give our Admissions Officer - Mrs Sharkey - a call on 0161 928 0678 or email to find out more and book your Open Day place.

 Current parents are also warmly welcomed – come and see what your daughter has been working on and what lies ahead for her!
