Inspiring Excellence


Welcome to St Margaret’s Prep and this very special community in the heart of Wiltshire. We are proud to offer an exceptional education for boys and girls between the ages of 2 and 11. Our 27-acre campus, which we share with St Mary’s Calne, provides a wonderfully stimulating environment and superb facilities, in which our pupils can learn, explore, discover and enjoy being children. 

We offer a holistic and balanced education, with strong values at its heart. These values provide a framework for our children as they interact with one another, experiencing the challenges and achievements of their educational journey with us. Our aim of ‘Inspiring Excellence’ is central to our commitment to ensure that each pupil aspires to fulfil his or her potential. To achieve this aim, our approach is underpinned by four key pillars: Igniting Interests; Nurturing Individuality; Fostering Exploration; and Realising Potential. 
By ‘Inspiring Excellence’ we aim to instil a positive sense of self in each pupil and a drive to be the best that they can be in all respects. Our philosophy is underpinned by the belief that children thrive when they are happy, stimulated and encouraged.  

We believe our duty is to prepare the children in our care to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world; to equip them with the life skills and attributes that will allow them to flourish in their senior schools and beyond. 
On these pages we hope to convey something of the essence of St Margaret's and all that we can offer your child, but I hope that you will visit us in person to truly experience this very special school.
