Welcome to Coogee Boys’ Preparatory School (Coogee Prep). We are a small, boys-only school, proud of our history as the oldest preparatory school in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. The combination of our size and emphasis on traditional values provides an excellent environment for the education of boys.
We provide nurturing and supportive learning surroundings where boys develop into gentlemen, scholars and sportsmen, well equipped to successfully transition into senior school.
Coogee Prep understands the benefits of a boys-only education and embraces the positive influences this can have on a boy’s self-image and confidence. To support this, there is a deliberate concentration of male teachers to provide positive role models for the boys. All teachers create 'boy-friendly' classrooms which aim to meet the individual needs and differences of their students.
The boys and parent community at Coogee Prep are our greatest asset and ambassadors. It is always a pleasure to watch a Coogee Prep boy behaving courteously and wearing his uniform with pride. So too is it rewarding to hear parents recommending Coogee Prep to prospective parents within the wider community.
2010 marked a new era in the life of Coogee Prep with the completion of the new building and supporting educational facilities. I am excited about the future and look forward to welcoming all new students and families to the Coogee Prep community. I am often reminded by our Old Boys of the wonderful friendships made during their years at Coogee Prep, and I hope your sons have the opportunity to experience this as well.
