Sevenoaks Prep, 1919-2019
Our Centenary year will be celebrated with a series of events from January to December 2019. These events aim to:
Many of the events that already take place in a busy, exciting school year will continue under the centenary banner but will be bigger occasions. Please click here for a calendar of events.
The pupils, staff and parents will also be taking part in community projects (including the 100 Club) and our charity for the year will be Save The Children.
A History of Sevenoaks Preparatory School: We are delighted that local historian, David Williams, has written a history of our first 100 years. Compiled from hours of research, both from local sources and from our archives, he has been able to determine the precise origins of the school in 1919 and chart our history through WW2, from Vine Court Road to Godden Green and through more recent years under Edward Oatley, Philip Oldroyd and Luke Harrison's headships. The launch of this book will take place on our Centenary Day on Saturday 15th June.
Centenary Centre: To mark the occasion of our centenary, we will be opening the Centenary Centre during 2019. Our most ambitious building project to date, it will provide a new heart for The Prep. Not only will the new building house teaching – Science, Art, Maths, English – it will also have an inspiring central space, which will serve as a library and space for The Prep community to gather.
This development is firmly based on a vision for how education should be. In particular, we believe it will give Years 6, 7 and 8 a greater sense of maturity and responsibility. To learn more about the Centenary Centre, please click here.
