"Parents in search of an education which will deliver confident children who see their futures in terms of unlimited options rather than curtailed ambitions....would be well advised to pay a visit... A forward-thinking yet, in many ways, traditional prep that manages to combine a purposeful approach with a relaxed atmosphere" - Good Schools Guide

About the school

Amesbury was founded in 1870 and is the oldest preparatory school in the Haslemere / Hindhead area on the Surrey/West Sussex/Hampshire borders. The school educates boys and girls between the ages of 2 and 13. Pupils move on to the best senior day and boarding schools in the UK.

In the previous decade, we have invested over £5m in the school's estate. Our excellent facilities extend the range of opportunities on offer to children, help to raise expectations and they are an outstanding resource for our valued Common Room.

Our chapel choir robes in red by royal consent and we are the only school to have a Grade 2* Listed Lutyens building designed specifically as a school.

Our history reflects our appetite for innovation and future thinking. Amesbury was one of the first schools in the country to ban corporal punishment and open a Pre-Prep Department, along with an on-site Learning Support Department. Ensuring our pupils are future ready with technology is an important part of modern day education and one that is highly regarded at Amesbury.

We provide each pupil from Year 5 onwards with their own laptop for school use. This technique of working is balanced with more traditional methods of learning, to provide a bespoke educational journey. Our integrated learning environments allow our pupils to work in a flexible and collaborative way within the classroom, facilitating both teamwork and leadership.

Amesbury was also an early adopter of the Pre Senior Baccalaureate (PSB). The PSB provides our pupils with a flexible curriculum and focuses more precisely on developing the skills and aptitudes that will best prepare children for the challenges of adolescence and beyond.

This deep rooted understanding of who we are and where we have come from is the firm foundation on which the school continues to thrive today.

Scholarships, Bursaries & Fees

We make scholarship awards because we believe that they strengthen the wider school community as award winners provide a positive lead aesthetically, intellectually and/or physically.

The scholarship process is not then about talent alone but developing the right attitudes to learning and setting standards for others. Scholars are expected to set consistently high standards. All scholarships are tenable throughout the holder’s career at Amesbury, subject only to the Head’s satisfaction with the holder’s industry, performance and behaviour. Candidates may apply for more than one scholarship.
