Our Aim & Ethos

Our Aim & Ethos

Glenesk is a non selective, co-educational Pre Prep and Nursery School and was founded in 1927. 


At Glenesk, we place important emphasis on social skills required for life: good manners, kindness, the importance of friendship and consideration and respect for others.  We believe that a happy and nurtured child will make an enthusiastic start to their school life and be more able to reach their full potential.

At Glenesk School, we aim:


To create an environment where safeguarding is a priority, where all children feel safe and secure and as a result can flourish and grow emotionally.

High quality teaching and learning

To provide high quality teaching and learning, which inspires a spirit of enquiry, challenge and exploration and encourages each child to develop as lifelong learners.

Small class sizes

To offer small classes and provide a rich timetable and broad curriculum enhanced by specialist teachers.

Holistic approach

To provide a holistic approach, with a balanced focus on the intellectual, moral, spiritual, physical and emotional development of every child.


To develop an environment in which traditional British values, thoughtfulness, compassion and respect for others play an important part.
