King's Ely Junior is a leading independent co-educational prep school, offering both day and boarding, and built on a fascinating history stretching back over 1,000 years.

Our prep school (ages 7-13) is filled with the same contagious excitement and energy that the whole of King's Ely (ages 2-18) is renowned for. Shortlisted in the 2020 Independent Schools of the Year Awards, we are a school where young people challenge themselves, push beyond the boundaries of their own expectations and achieve more than they ever believed possible.
