Prep School is an inspiring environment for boys who are quickly maturing and eager to express opinions. We aim to encourage curiosity and to set our boys on the path toward being lifelong learners with inquisitive, objective minds. Equally, we instill the values of an ethical person; a young gentleman -an Aitchisonian.
The subjects offered at Prep School include: Cambridge studies in English, Mathematics, Science, added to which are school syllabi of Urdu, Pakistan Studies, Islamiat, Arts, Mandarin, German and French. Computer studies is integrated into all core subjects.

In addition to Syed Babar Ali Library, Prep School has its own library which is extensively used by pupils on daily basis. A modern Tuck Shop with oven fresh food items is the focus of pupils and teachers during mid-day break.
