The transition from Bevendean to the Main School is exciting for the Year 1 children, to prepare them for joining Year 2 in September, they visit the Main School regularly for exciting activities. Today the Year 1 children came to visit Mrs Keat in the library for a Christmas story and a spot of crafts! Mrs Keat read them the story of The Snowman by Michael Morpurgo, one December morning James wakes to see snow falling and he rushes outside to make a snowman! This special tale of true Christmas magic made for a wonderful story-time for our Year 1 children. Afterwards, they set about making Christmas decorations for their classrooms Christmas trees, making candy canes with beads, stickers, and glitter. The children had an amazing afternoon in the Library familiarizing themselves with the new surroundings and they even heard the school bell for the first time, which caused a lot of excitement!

About Danes Hill
Danes Hill School is widely recognised as one of the leading co-educational day preparatory schools in the country. Situated in 55 acres of landscaped ground in the village of Oxshott, Surrey, Danes Hill provides children aged 3 to 13 with a dynamic and exciting education.
At Danes Hill School we pride ourselves in being a non-selective school and our admissions process is designed to identify children who are able to benefit from our balanced and well-rounded education. An offer of a place will be made if we feel Danes Hill is the right school for your child.
The first three years of school – Nursery and Reception – are together called the Early Years. The Danes Hill Pre-Prep school aims to help all children to take their first learning steps in comfort, safety and confidence.
The Prep School is divided into the Junior School (Years 2 to 5), and Upper School (Years 6 to 8), each with its own Head, its own assemblies and traditions, and very much its own ethos. Children are encouraged to feel allegiance to their own particular section of the school, and this sectional subdivision ensures that the school never feels overwhelmingly big.
- School Life
A child’s school days should be filled with excitement and wonder, creating memories that they will treasure for years to come. Danes Hill School is the perfect platform for children to discover their passions, make lifelong friendships and believe in themselves.
