Finton House is a co-educational inclusive prep school in Wandsworth for children between 4-11 years old, with a strong family ethos. The School was founded in 1987 with two founding principles: a non-selective intake and a fully inclusive education.
About the school
The school motto ‘Open Hearts and Guiding Hands’ sums up the warm and caring relationships that we aim to promote in order to deliver an outstanding education.
Finton House was founded in 1987 as a charitable trust with two principles in mind. Firstly that young children should not have to face the pressures of a competitive entry system. Secondly that of providing an inclusive environment, where all children, including those with specific needs, have the same opportunities. These principles underpin the educational experience at Finton House.
Scholarships, Bursaries & Fees
A bursary can pay for up to 100% of the fees for a pupil whose family is unable to meet the cost of independent school. The bursary fund was launched in 2007 in memory of Sally Walker, Deputy Head and Head of Special Needs at the school from 1999-2002 and Headmistress from 2002-2005. Bursaries are available to children aged 7 or over on the 1st September of the year of entry (Year 3).
Finton House has a policy of non-selective entry and places are offered on a first come, first served basis, with no interview or assessment. Parents are advised to register for Reception places as soon as possible after the birth of their child. Up to 60 places are offered each year, half to girls and half to boys.
Late Entry places are sometimes available for children over the age of five, and parents are encouraged to contact the Registrar if they are looking for a place in Years 1-5.
