We are delighted to announce that Halstead Preparatory School for Girls will be sponsoring the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon Kids Run on 08 March 2020. ENTER NOW.

Halstead Preparatory School for Girls is a thriving independent Day School, founded in 1927, specialising in the education of girls aged 2 to 11 years. The school is immensely proud of its rich, 92-year history.

In the early days, the school was based at Halstead Place in Kent, before it was uprooted and moved to Devizes in Wiltshire during World War II. The current site in Woking was established in 1947, and the school has never looked back, going from strength to strength in its development.

Within an idyllic setting, the girls enjoy learning in specialist facilities including well-resourced classrooms, a music suite, ICT suite, science laboratory, art room, design & technology classroom and a food technology classroom. The site also boasts a stage, sports hall, running track, tennis and netball courts and beautiful play areas.

The school’s motto, “believe in yourself”, reflects its commitment to empowering children to be confident, happy and successful. A wide range of extra-curricular clubs enriches the girls’ experiences and gives further opportunities to discover and nurture their interests and talents.

Halstead Preparatory School for Girls are delighted to be sponsoring the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon Kids Run. Many of their pupils, staff and children have participated in past events, so this is a fantastic opportunity for the whole school community to come together and be more involved with the event.

Children who are too young to race or do not wish to take part in running the 2k Kids Run will be encouraged to support the event by completing tasks designed to develop self-belief, dexterity and problem-solving skills. The school believes that these particular skills will be highly beneficial for the children in the years to come, particularly as the skills required in today’s workplace are unrecognisable from those needed 10 or 15 years ago. These tasks will include (but are not limited to) handing out medals, litter picking and helping out in bag storage.

Anyone can register to volunteer at the event – there is no selection process.
