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.

“A wonderful family school”
I have known Mrs Tanner ( the headteacher and proprietor of Queenswood) for many years since we studied together. I have always been impressed by her kindness, wit, intelligence and integrity. I have been equally impressed with her school from the very first day that I visited. I shouldn't really say 'her school' because it is quite clear that the school belongs to everyone who participates in it's daily life - staff, pupils and parents. I was a primary teacher for 27 years and I know that the curriculum at Queenswood is as rigorous, vibrant and challenging as that in any state primary school. Furthermore, the children are wonderful-confident and chatty, but always respectful. When Mrs Tanner asked me to be Safeguarding Governor for the school I did not hesitate for a second; I consider it a privilege to be associated with such an impressive school, it's dedicated staff and it's wonderful pupils. If you are considering an independent school, please visit Queenswood - you will be impressed.
