Junior: 3-11

Colfe’s is uniting its Prep School (ages 6-10) and Pre-Prep and Nursery (ages 3-6) from September 2016 to form a single school: Colfe’s Junior School.

The change recognises that most of the pupils joining the current Prep School have already been at Colfe’s since the Nursery or Reception year.  This is a result of rapidly growing numbers attending the Pre-Prep and Nursery.  Colfe’s opened stunning new buildings to accommodate them in 2014.

The combined Junior School will give greater impetus to providing a seamless academic transition for children throughout the early stages of their school career (and indeed onwards into the Senior School).  There will also be some administrative efficiencies as duplicate services, including after-school care, are brought together.

The first head of Colfe’s Junior School is to be Catriona Macleod.  Catriona has previously been Head of the independent Dunottar Junior School for Girls and Knightsbridge Junior School; she has latterly been acting head of a free school.
