Banstead Prep School is a co-educational prep school and nursery for girls and boys aged 2-11.
About the school
Education with character is the ethos that sits at the very heart of our school and forms the core of what we believe. There’s more to a good education than learning – we work to develop our children’s characters, build their tenacity, foster courage and above all, inspire them to achieve excellence.
Our state-of-the-art facilities enable us to offer the broadest range of opportunities as part of an engaging, innovative and exciting curriculum, helping us to set the highest possible ambition for every child, and get the best from everyone.
From the very youngest children in our nursery through to those preparing for senior school, Banstead Prep School provides a stimulating and happy environment for learning.
Banstead Prep isn’t a feeder for any particular senior school, rather we work to help parents identify aspirational but realistic school choices. We prepare the children through broad curriculum teaching within the normal school timetable to ensure every child leaves us for their senior school of choice feeling valued, prepared, confident and ready to thrive.
