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

Crown House School is a non-selective preparatory day school for girls and boys between the ages of three and 11 years. Pupils are taught in eight single-aged classes from preschool through to Year 6. Typically, there are about 20 pupils in each class. There are currently 13 part-time pupils who attend the Nursery. There is no provision for two-year-olds. The school premises occupy an old Jacobean building. The building has been renovated and extended to provide a large hall and early years provision. The school is registered for up to 160 pupils. Inspection report: Crown House School, 9–11 May 2018 Page 8 of 11 The school aims for its pupils to be happy, safe and confident. The school’s principle is that ‘the individual matters’. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is well below the national average. No pupils currently have an education, health and care plan. All pupils sit the 11-plus examination. In the most recent tests, 85% gained a place at a selective grammar school. The school was last inspected in June 2016, when its overall effectiveness was judged to require improvement. The school runs both a breakfast club and after-school provision. The school belongs to a small group of independent schools, known as Alpha Schools Limited. Up until 2014, the chair of directors was the headteacher of this school.
