Papplewick  School, Ascot  Visit: 

To lessen any possibility of ‘beginning of term blues’ after the long, hot summer break, Papplewick boys were pleased to have the chance to have a fun day with their fellow classmates on what is called ‘Form Thursday’  All boys in the school were treated to a range of school trips out (years 5-8) including murder mysteries in Windsor, climbing walls in Reading, a visit to RAF Duxford, visit to the Bluebell Railway, and trip to the Science Museum. The Lower school  enjoyed a slap up  BBQ lunch at school followed by fun activities within the school grounds when years 2- 4 took part in a nature treasure trail, and  created imaginative bird-feeders in the trees.

Tom Bunbury, Headmaster said “Form Thursday is designed to assist the boys to gel together in their new forms at the start of the year and is of special value to new boys proving a popular bonding experience for all involved.

 Papplewick is a day, weekly, and full boarding preparatory school for around 200 boys between the ages of 6 and 13. Situated in 15 acres of land opposite Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, Papplewick has an excellent record for academic achievement and feeds many of the UK’s top independent senior schools including Eton, Harrow, Winchester, Wellington, Stowe and Bradfield.  

In the last two years the school has maintained its academic record, gaining no less than 26 awards to top independent schools, including three King’s Scholarships to Eton. Through its strong commitment to sports, the school also builds skills of teamwork, sportsmanship and responsibility.

As well as academic, sporting and cultural excellence, Papplewick aims to provide boys with the confidence and security they need to fulfil their potential, and the school strives to promote enthusiasm for life, contribution to the community and kindness to others amongst all its pupils. 

A report by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in 2013 remarks that relationships between pupils and teachers: ‘are an outstanding strength of the school and are seminal in creating the strong sense of a mutually supportive and trusting community.’
