Kingswood House school is a leading independent day school for boys aged four to sixteen in a leafy suburb of Epsom, Surrey with excellent transport links.

We offer a well-rounded education and a purposeful, supportive ethos in which each child will grow in independence, resilience and self-esteem. We are ambitious for our boys and challenge each individual to achieve their potential in a conducive environment of small classes and high expectations. 

Accredited as “excellent in all areas” in our last ISI inspection, Kingswood House is also endorsed by the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools (IAPS) and the Society of Heads (SoH). Our values promote tolerance, respect and friendship and we welcome families from all faiths, or none.

Our school philosophy aims to:

  • Develop the individual abilities of each child in a secure, caring and friendly environment where they are happy and motivated to learn and to appreciate the benefits of healthy living and physical fitness.
  • Encourage participation, enjoyment and success in all areas of the School’s curriculum to create a well-rounded, confident child who shows respect, tolerance and compassion towards people and the environment.
  • Help children develop self-worth and maturity so they are equipped to deal with life’s challenges and are well-prepared for the next stage of their education.
  • Create a strong partnership between parents, children and staff to foster social awareness and to allow all members of the School community to feel valued and appreciated.

Kingswood House is in an excellent location with easy access by road and rail from a large proportion of Surrey. Situated on West Hill, the school is just on the outskirts of Epsom town centre, within three miles of Junction 9 M25; the railway station is a 10 minute walk away, public buses go past the door. We currently run 4 minibus routes but this is flexible and we are looking to expand according to pupil need.
