Private preparatory schools are private day and boarding schools for young students. They are often associated with a senior school, and prepare students for life at that senior school.

Some schools are based on the same campus as the senior school, and others have their own campus.

Schools have excellent recreational facilities and extra-curricular programmes. They offer a superior level of pastoral care and supervision, with a strong focus of progression onto senior school.
