Middle Prep gives children the chance to spread their wings and take steps to independence in a safe and stimulating family environment.

The Middle Prep staff team (teachers and support staff) know every child as an individual and are able to provide the perfect balance of nurture, support and challenge to ensure the very best progress with lots of shared laughter and fun.

Whenever children join us, at any stage, they soon feel at home, making friends quickly and finding the confidence to ‘have a go’ at many wonderful opportunities that life at Durlston brings.
