Hello from The Mead!
We would like to respond that children are in fact allowed to wear shoes indoors during school hours. We are a happy, nurturing school whose aim is to bring out the best in each child. We actively support school applications to all schools, whether Grammar, Independent or Senior, and every year are incredibly proud of our 11+, academic, sporting and Scholarship successes.
It is worth noting that catchment areas are based on your permanent home address in relation to your target school, and not the address of the Independent Prep School your child attends.
Please do feel free to contact us at any point, either by person, phone or internet, and we would be happy to talk further about our educational philosophy, ethos and any other concern you may have.
