Senior Preparatory School
It is an honour, a privilege and our collective passion to educate and raise young gentlemen, who will become our hope for the future, and ultimately, adults that the world can and will depend on.
The collective community at WHPS exposes our pupils to a sound, yet innovative and global curriculum – a curriculum that is imbued with the tone, values and ethos of our village and our community.
Honour, integrity, personal endeavour and accountability, a strong and determined work ethic and the encouragement to achieve one’s personal best are all intrinsically interwoven within the core curriculum and everyday activities at WHPS.
Add to this our beautiful, village-like surroundings; modern state of the art facilities; supportive and committed teachers and staff, parents and pupils; and a Council exemplifying visionary leadership and progressive forward thinking… and you have a School that strives to raise and educate balanced, motivated, successful and happy young people.
The strong academic drives include, The 16 Habits of Mind. Critical and Creative Thinking, Reading and Writing Fair, Integration of technology in the classroom and De Bono’s Thinking Hats. Staff are committed to developing their own skills as teachers and part of this included being exposed to new and innovative ideas.
Our aim continues to provide an education for our boys so that they might gain a love of learning and the intellectual skills to acquire knowledge and become life-long learners. It is not always easy but it sets an aspiration for those who believe, as I do, that teachers must walk tall in our society.
