Welcome to Donhead Preparatory School

A Jesuit Preparatory Day School for boys aged 4 to 11 years

At Donhead we aim to offer education at its most varied, providing a curriculum that is both academically challenging and recognises the importance of all areas of a child's development.

All our pupils are encouraged to develop their talents to the full, whilst placing them in the wider context of the community. In this way a pupil's development and growth is not just personal, but is sensitive to the needs and aspirations of others both in and beyond the school.

Our aim is to instil a sense of 'service' and concern for others in the pupils of today, in pursuit of the Jesuit ideal of developing men and women for others.

24/10/14 - Northbrook Fundraising

Message from the Friends of Donhead

Today, in your sons' book bags, you will receive a catalogue from Northbrook fundraising. This company has a great selection of cards and wrapping products as well as novel gifts. For every purchase made, Friends of Donhead will receive money directly from Northbrook. (For those boys that are away on the rugby tour, the brochures will be kept for you until after half-term.)

Please take a look, it is all excellent quality and very reasonably priced. There are two ways to order:

  1. Fill out the form on the back of the catalogue, attach a cheque made payable to "Friends of Donhead" and place this in the FOD box. (this is in the hallway outside the School Office) This needs to be done by Friday 14th November. You will then receive your order from us by the end of November.
  2. Order directly on the Northbrook website and all goods will be received with 5 working days directly to your address. When placing an order online, please make sure you select "Donhead Preparatory School" as your designated school or charity. There is a wider selection available online and everything will be sent directly to you. Please remember, that for every purchase made, the FOD will benefit.

Thank you.

30/09/14 - Safeguarding and Volunteers

Message from the Headmaster's Office

There is now a requirement for all volunteers in school to sign a Safeguarding sheet and to read a Safeguarding leaflet. Both these documents are available to download from Parent Forms.

If you help in school with reading, Drop & Go, etc., please read the leaflet and return the signed sheet to the School Office as soon as possible.

Thank you.
