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

The culture of safeguarding is weak. The proprietor has brought in specialists to bring about improvements. They have introduced new systems, but gaps in teachers’ understanding of safeguarding remain. The quality of education at the school has declined since the previous standard inspection. The headteacher left recently. This had an unsettling effect on this small school. The interim headteacher joined six weeks ago. He has quickly stabilised the school and begun to give staff confidence that it can improve. Many aspects of leadership have improved since the emergency inspection in February 2021, but the arrangements to keep pupils safe are still not fully effective. Pupils are articulate, keen to learn and enjoy being at school. In particular, they enjoy the many sporting activities that are now restarting as COVID-19 (coronavirus) restrictions begin to ease. Pupils’ polite, calm behaviour is the hallmark of the school. Pupils respect their teachers and each other. As a result, they collaborate well. For example, in Year 2, pupils work together well to solve problems such as sorting materials into different groups. Very few pupils are worried about bullying. Pupils respect each other and their teachers. This leads to a distinctive family atmosphere at the school. Parents and carers value this highly.
