Start your journey with Bowdon Prep School (BPS) at our Open Day, 12th October 2019, 12-2pm

11th September 2019


Choosing the right school for your daughter is one of the most important decisions you can make as a family. We invite you to start the journey with us at our Open Day on Saturday 12th October. It’s a chance to see Bowdon Preparatory School (BPS) in action and to gain an understanding about our learning environment, values, goals and our ambitions for every pupil. You can also meet our pupils as well as those who have just moved on to senior school and talk to them about their BPS journey.

Our doors will be open from 12 to 2pm on Sat 12th Oct 2019 and we’re offering a wide range of exciting activities such as:

  • Workshops and classroom activities – there is everything from science experiments, poem writing challenges, to ICT and Maths games and puzzles.
    • Particularly popular is our Reasoning Workshop – parents see how BPS support pupils in developing key reasoning skills from Y3 upwards, preparing them for both senior school admission and for the 21st century world of work.
  • Outdoor fun – let our championship netball team coach you to score a goal, have a go at bush craft activities or try a spot of tennis using a giant size racket!   

You can also listen to our award-winning choir and orchestra and visit our Book Fair. And there will be a free ‘Goodie Bag’ of useful and fun items for everyone who attends!

Mrs Gee, our Headmistress, shares her key reasons why she believes that BPS offers the best education for girls: 

  • High standards 

We are proud of our high standards at BPS. Our staff are specialist teachers who are passionate about their subjects. In addition to ensuring first class work from pupils, our teachers encourage good behaviour on a day to day basis through cultivating an environment of courtesy, respect and kindness. We are not afraid to push standards continually and our girls thrive as a result. 

  • Firm values – Believe, Persevere, Succeed

BPS doesn’t just stand for Bowdon Preparatory School, it also represents our values of Belief, Perseverance and Success. At BPS, our mission is to empower girls to believe in themselves, and to persevere and succeed in all that they do. We instil in our girls buckets of self-esteem, determination, responsibility and pride, which, in turn, leads them to enjoy successes – large and small. 

  • A positive journey of growth and development 

BPS offers a supportive, nurturing and academic environment for girls within which to develop their talents. They become part of the BPS family, where they are known, understood and supported as individuals, and we enable pupils to foster key life skills such as critical thinking, teamwork, performing and presenting, resilience and adaptability.

BPS takes girls from Kindergarten to Y6, with places available in across the various year groups. Give our Admissions Officer – Mrs Sharkey – a call on 0161 928 0678 or email to find out more and book your Open Day place.
