Set in leafy South-West London, Kew College Prep provides a small, supportive and vibrant school community. The minute you walk through the door, the ethos of the school is apparent; it is a friendly and caring environment which is relaxed but purposeful. The relationship between staff and pupils is warm and open and there is a tangible buzz of creativity in the air. The children are respectful, responsible, hard-working, and fun-loving individuals who thrive given opportunities to take risks in their learning and set challenges for themselves.
The curriculum is designed to provide pupils with opportunities to create, connect and collaborate both within and beyond the classroom. Children are encouraged to ask questions and think creatively. Technology is used to enhance learning across all subject areas, and sports and arts feature prominently in school life. The school's Junior House (Years 3-6) is also the springboard for our unique 11+ programme. From Year 5 onwards, each child is provided with a tailored learning plan. The results of entrance exams to secondary schools are excellent with numerous scholarships attained.
The children display an overwhelming desire to achieve and are inspired by staff who work with boundless energy, dedication and determination. No stone is left unturned as they strive to support and nurture every child to achieve their full potential. A strong moral value system is embedded from an early age so that, by the time the pupils leave Kew College Prep, they can think independently and critically. They are inquisitive, reflective and well-rounded; true individuals who are prepared for the rigours of secondary school and for the changing world in which they live.
"Both of our boys joined the school in the Nursery and have flourished in the nurturing and caring environment the school provides. The children are all confident, articulate, well-mannered, and thoroughly nice kids who are comfortable in the company of adults. Our boys have thrived at Kew College Prep and always raced enthusiastically into school each day. The teaching and school philosophy is very much focused on helping each child to achieve their best in a happy environment. As parents, we really couldn't ask for more." The Stewart family
"We chose Kew College Prep for our four daughters for its warm atmosphere and its happy, friendly, and well-mannered pupils. We feel fortunate to have also found a school which fulfils its promise of educating our children to their highest potential. We have children with differing abilities and personalities, but Kew College Prep has provided support and education for all of them. Every child at this school is unique, but one thing that every child here has in common is that they will leave strengthened by their experience." The Ahmed Family
