Head teacher Bradley Lavagna-Slater said: “As a non-selective school, the standard achieved by our pupils is impressive and shows that hard works pays off.

“Their success is richly deserved and we are very proud of them all.

“We are absolutely delighted for the children and their families, all of whom make a significant contribution to their child’s education.

“In congratulating the children, I would also like to express my thanks to our teaching staff who work incredibly hard to nurture each pupil to achieve their very best, and to all the parents who provide such important support to their children.

Wilmslow Prep prides itself on its rich academic and extra-curricular programme which sees pupils exploring drama, music, art and sports. They work closely with families to support them to select the senior school most appropriate for their child and it’s a formula that works.

Mr Lavagna-Slater added: “School life at Wilmslow Prep is energetic and diverse, stretching the children as they progress through the school to Prep 6.

“Pupils leave us as well-rounded individuals who have the confidence to progress well in a senior school environment.

“I wish them all the very best for the future.”
