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

Westbury House School is an independent co-educational day school. There are currently 104 boys and girls on roll aged three to 11. The school is located in the London Borough of Kingston. The school was founded by a family member of the current proprietor in 1966. There is no governing body. Pupils are from a wide range of ethnic heritages, with the majority having an Asian background. A small minority of pupils speak English as an additional language. The early year’s provision consists of a Nursery and Reception class. Most children attend part time in the Nursery and full time in the Reception class. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is well below average The school prepares pupils for entrance examinations to independent secondary schools at the age of 11. The school uses the Kings College sports ground for physical education lessons, and the local leisure centre for swimming lessons. Inspectors undertook activities to check the school compliance with independent school standards. The school’s aim is to provide ‘a complete education by achieving a balance between academic and creative work, with a strong emphasis on music, drama, sport and art’. A director of studies was appointed in September 2014. The last inspection of the school by Ofsted was in November 2011. At the time of this inspection the school was judged to provide a good quality of education. Almost all of the independent school standards were met.
