Holy Cross Preparatory is an independent school for girls aged 3-11 in Kingston.

The education journey here begins with the pre-school, Little Sparks, for girls aged 3-4 and continues with Pre-Prep and Prep all located on 8 acres of beautiful grounds off Kingston Hill.

At Holy Cross Preparatory School for girls, you will notice immediately that they identify and nurture your daughter's talents from the very start. Their emphasis on understanding the strengths and personal make-up of each individual girl has, their parents say, become the hallmark of a Holy Cross Prep education. The school prides itself on building foundations that last a lifetime for every single girl, and they believe that starting this journey in the early formative years is key to prepping them for senior school and beyond.

The two-form entry benefits from small class sizes and provides a warm, nurturing and stimulating environment where a dynamic, highly motivating and relevant curriculum is taught by a team of excellent teachers. The school promotes a growth mindset in STEAM subjects, empowering their girls to be responsible citizens who are confident, independent, well-rounded and fully prepared to face the challenges of any selective senior school. The dedicated teaching team ensure that high academic standards are upheld across every subject, as well as the many specialist subjects, which include Sport, Music, Drama, Computing, Art and French.

Often described as Kingston's best kept secret, their state-of-the-art facilities are set in eight acres of beautiful, historic grounds on a quiet road off Kingston Hill. The school is unique with extensive open spaces for creative play, exploration and team sport; the grounds include a woodland walk, adventure playground and 3G floodlit sports pitches.

Sarah Hair, Headteacher, states: "It is of great importance to me to maintain the balance between the goal-oriented side and the formation of character and development of those life skills that do indeed last a lifetime. At Holy Cross Preparatory we identify strengths, talents and values from the very start. In short, we ignite the spark that will shape the life of your daughter so she can aspire to be the best she can be."
