Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Description

Alpha is a small, friendly, co-educational school for pupils aged 3 – 11. We have a stable, well-qualified teaching staff, many of whom sent their own children to the school. Our experience as parents and teachers has helped us to understand the importance of creating a family environment where each child feels secure and is able to develop their full potential. If you would like to meet us and view the school, simply contact us and we would be delighted to make an appointment for you.

Alpha Preparatory School Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating

“Parent Review”

As a parent of children that have attended the school, I cannot recommend it enough. The teachers and headmaster are professional, friendly, fair and provide an outstanding environment for children to learn and thrive in. I felt that my children were supported and encouraged in all areas of their learning and when they found things challenging, the staff couldn’t be more helpful and appreciative of their efforts. If ever there was a problem, the teachers spoke to my children and it was dealt with in a kind and caring way. Obviously the teaching is to a high standard because the working world is very competitive and nowadays we need to go above and beyond but my children were never made to feel like they were in competition with others in their classes; they only have happy memories of their time at Alpha.
