You will find a list of all South-West preparatory schools at the bottom of this page. You can use the search filters below to choose day or boarding schools, girls' or boys' schools, or find the school nearest to you with our postcode search.
Click on a school's name for more information. Prep schools with full profiles appear at the top of the listings in highlighted panels. Some schools provide links to their social media and you can also watch school videos.
Many prep schools are members of the Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS), which is a good source of initial advice about preparatory education.
You can also read preparatory school news and feature articles in our editorial section. You may find the following articles particularly useful:
– What does a prep school education truly provide? by Mark Hartley, vice-chairman of IAPS.
– Why British prep schools continue to be at the forefront of education, by Tania Botting, vice-chairman of IAPS.
– Choosing a prep school – the issues to consider and questions to ask, by Andrew Hunter, Headmaster of Merchiston Castle School.
These search results are from www.schoolsearch.co.uk, the online guide to independent schools in the UK, in partnership with John Catt's Which School? guidebook, first published in 1924, and John Catt's Preparatory Schools. We hope you find the perfect school for your child!
