Semper magis - always more
A Jesuit School where children are honoured, cared for and believed in
Donhead Preparatory School is a Roman Catholic independent school for boys, ages 4 to 11, in the trusteeship of the Society of Jesus.
Pre Prep at Donhead offers a caring, nurturing and stimulating environment in which a well-balanced curriculum is delivered. The key principles of Jesuit Education are introduced, laying the foundations for the future years.
Creating intellectually competent young men who are good and virtuous; prepared to take on the next phase of their lives. Boys leave the Prep School living out our motto, Semper Magis - 'Always More'
Our community encompasses our pupils, their families, our alumni, the Jesuit community, the church and the wider world.
We seek to educate young boys of competence, conscience and compassionate commitment. We hope our boys will become ‘Men for Others’, in active service of those who need their help most.
