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

This is a small, friendly school where pupils feel safe. Pupils enjoy coming to school, they attend well, and arrive on time. Friendships are positive and pupils are generally kind to one another. They say that while bullying does happen, teachers are quick to put it right. Staff want the best for pupils. However, leaders do not have a clear oversight of the quality of education in the school. This means that not all pupils are doing as well as they could. The curriculum is not joined up, so pupils are not prepared for their next stage of learning. A small number of pupils need additional support. Teachers do not carry out checks on their learning to ensure that they are getting the help they need. Staff do not manage behaviour consistently well across the school. In some classes, pupils are frequently requested to stop speaking when they are in fact talking about their learning. This has a detrimental impact on their understanding and often interrupts productive discussion. In contrast, low-level disruption is not managed quickly enough. This also stops pupils learning. The school provides rich opportunities for learning beyond the main lessons. Pupils attend and enjoy lunchtime and after-school clubs. They engage in charitable work and enjoy being active members of the community.

The White House School Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK.
