Welcome to Strathearn Preparatory Department

Strathearn's Preparatory Department is a nurturing, thriving prep school just a short walk from the senior school. We are a caring, friendly community in which happy children discover a love of learning, have access to numerous opportunities and develop the confidence to fulfil their potential.
