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

Maple House is a small Montessori school in Thornton Heath, Surrey. Its aim is ‘to help pupils develop their knowledge and skills to reach their full potential in anticipation of their transfer to senior school’. The school opened in February 1999. It has 56 boys and girls on roll, aged three to 11 years. Twelve pupils attend part time. There are no disabled pupils and no pupils with special educational needs. None of the pupils have a statement of special educational needs. Most pupils are of Black African or Black Caribbean heritage, with the remainder coming from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. Five pupils speak English as an additional language. There are extra activities in the evening until 5.30pm. In the Early Years Foundation Stage, this is mainly a continuation of day activities. In the rest of the school, the focus is on supporting homework. There is also a breakfast club beginning at 7.45am. No other alternative provision is used by the school. The school’s last full inspection by Ofsted was in September 2009 when the school failed a number of regulations related to the quality of the curriculum, teaching, the Early Years Foundation Stage, and access for those pupils with a disability. This was followed by a progress monitoring inspection in April 2010, which judged that the school had addressed all but one of the regulations. The inspection found that there was insufficient outdoor play space for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
