Full Report - All Reports

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.

Hemdean House School Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating

“Supportive school”

Hemdean House is a warm and supportive community where every child is seen as an individual and celebrated for their own accomplishments. My child thrived, developed a love of learning, made great friends, and was gently encouraged to challenge herself by trying new things. Lessons were engaging, and she enjoyed going to school each day. Forest School, where the children explore nature, was something she particularly enjoyed.
“Very happy”

Our child is very happy at the school, there have been a lot of attention to detail and improvements in the last few years. I particularly like that the children are allowed to grow rather than being forced.
