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.

Farrowdale House School Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating

“Fantastic sch”

I am a parent. A fantastic school with such a lovely warm family environment. My child is thriving and I could not ask for better staff and senior leaders. The pupils achieve fantastic results and move on to some of the best grammar schools in Manchester.

My granddaughter has been attending farrowdale house since pre school straight through to year one. Farrowdale have been amazing, I cannot fault anything they do. Education is outstanding. They offer children various musical lessons, outside school sports activities, a choice of dance, school outings, etc. The school assemblies are full of positivity. The children never have a negative attitude. It's all positive talk. It's a family school. Everyone is so friendly. I cannot fault this school what's so ever. The teachers are just so caring, supporting, and excellent with everything they do for the pupils, families and the school. They work to every child's individuals needs. They will bend over backwards for the children and parents. Over all I rate this school as outstanding. My other grandchild will be attending in April 2020. I also have a nephew who has attended Farrowdale since he was three year olds, he is now in Year 6. I recommend Farrowdale House 100%.
