The phased-in move to full co-education
We are delighted to announce plans to extend our co-educational provision. The School is presently co-educational up to the age of 7 and girls only from 7 to 11. From September 2023, we will phase in co-education up to the age of 11 so that more families can benefit from all that our wonderful school has to offer.
Historically, we have warmly welcomed boys into Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. It is wonderful to see the boys mix well and flourish during their time with us then being well-prepared to head off to local Prep Schools. This has also enabled us to monitor over time, how the children learn in a co-educational class, and consider the many benefits of this as we prepare the children to thrive in the modern and ever-changing world that they are growing up in.
After careful consideration, we made the exciting decision to transition to being fully co-educational beginning with those starting Reception in September 2023. This would mean that both boys and girls joining Reception in September 2023 can expect to continue their Pre-Prep and Prep years at Coworth Flexlands until the end of Year 6.
At Coworth Flexlands, we continually assess and adapt their approach to education which is forward-thinking and in the best interests of its pupils and families. Increasingly, there is a growing demand and trend towards co-educational settings and we very much want to meet the needs of our School community. We feel very fortunate that we are able to extend our nurturing and individualised approach to all pupils for their Prep school journey. With so many families sending us children of both sexes, we feel it is really important for all members of the family to have the same experience and opportunities.
Our ethos and provision will not falter as we pride ourselves on the wonderful family feel the School currently has, which will only improve with this change. Every individual child matters and they will continue to be nurtured, inspired and importantly move on well prepared to their first choice Senior School.
This is a very exciting change for our Coworth Flexlands family. The School achieves extraordinary results thanks to our focus on Inspiring Minds and Nurturing Spirit. A Prep School where happiness gets results! We would delighted to welcome families to visit our school. Please contact the Registrar for more information and to arrange a visit to our wonderful school.
