Known locally as the "Red School" because of the scarlet uniforms, Woodford Green Preparatory School was founded in 1932 to provide a non-denominational Christian education for boys and girls aged from 3 to 11 years, a tradition that has been maintained throughout and is now enriched by welcoming children of all faiths and none. The school is highly regarded by parents as successful in terms of ensuring children are safe, happy and well prepared for achieving excellent results in 11+ entrance examinations. We aim to provide a learning community that lights the flame within and empowers all children to reach their educational and personal potential. Our vision is to be known as a school where every pupil is nurtured, encouraged to be curious and achieves their very best.
Our latest independent school inspection report (2014) highlights our outstanding work. Our school ensures that "pupils' personal development is excellent" and that "the quality of pupils' achievements and learning is excellent and reflects the school's aims". It was also noted by the inspectors that our children "are confident, self-aware and have high esteem. Pupils have a keen moral sense, awareness of others and accept responsibility willingly".
The friendly, supportive environment, in which excellent work and behaviour fosters interest and independence, encourages all children to do their very best. We have purpose-built areas for science, sport, art, music, computing and French, complemented by specialist teachers. We have excellent teachers and modern facilities throughout the school, including a fabulous library which is regularly used by the whole school to foster a love of reading. In the Early Years, highly qualified staff ensure that children have an outstanding foundation for the rest of their education both here at WGPS and beyond.
Our links with parents are very active and we strive to give parents excellent opportunities to be involved in school life and their children's progress.
We look forward to welcoming you to our very happy and successful school.
