Prenton Prep is an independent co-educational school founded in Prenton in 1935 which  moved to its present site in Oxton in 1974. It was acquired by Forfar in July 2022.

Nestling in the heart of Oxton’s conservation area, the charming sandstone building, stands in attractive mature gardens. These secure surroundings provide a large playground and lawned area for the pupils.

The main aim of the school is to cater for the educational and emotional needs of all their pupils in a caring, nurturing, disciplined and stimulating environment, liaising closely with the home to the benefit of each the individual child.  The school focuses on equipping the children to take their place in our multicultural society as confident, polite, compassionate and tolerant individuals – qualities which reflect the ethos of our school. The school achieves this through a holistic approach to each child’s education; the teaching of a broad, balanced curriculum with small classes, giving every child, regardless of ability, the opportunity to develop his or her self-esteem, whilst achieving their true potential.
