News, events and schools' information for families across Bath and West Wiltshire

Heywood Prep in Corsham, Wiltshire, has been shortlisted by Independent School Parent for the Prep School of the Year Award 2024.

“This recognition is a testament to the hard work and enthusiasm of our teachers, the efforts of our pupils and the support of our parents and community,” said Headmaster Mr Tim O’Connell. “The nomination reflects our dedication to providing an outstanding education and a nurturing environment for all of our pupils. 

“We are especially pleased to have our Individualised Learning Programme recognised. This programme allows pupils to spend 30 minutes each day in small, mixed-year group classes tailored to their specific needs. These classes cover diverse subjects such as music theory, robotics, archaeology, sign language, and working memory.

“The school’s small size enables this tailored approach, allowing each child to reach their individual potential. 

“We are proud to be in the company of other excellent schools and look forward to the final results. Thank you to Independent School Parent for this honour and to everyone in the Heywood Prep family for your continued support.”
