Edge Grove is located in 48 acres of parkland yet only 15 miles from Central London. The setting and facilities ensure pupils are able to enjoy a wide range of experiences and develop confidence in a 'challenging, fun and inspirational environment.' Pupils are 'happy, motivated, articulate and intellectually curious with the confidence and enthusiasm to make the most of every opportunity presented to them.'
Head Ed Balfour says: 'We believe in the truly transformative effect of a preparatory Edge Grove education; one which provides boys and girls with a safe, happy and uniquely child-centred environment in which they can build friendships (often for life), belong, develop their own agency and innate creativity, curiosity and character.'
'Our highly-qualified and experienced teaching staff encourage children to participate early as active learners, to take increasing ownership of their learning, to probe, question and develop an increasing Growth Mindset together with the self-discipline, perseverance and academic risk-taking that is our academic hallmark. Through this, our pupils learn the confidence and independence to inspire.'
'Edge Grove’s senior pupils are living embodiments of our coeducational Mission; they are proudly individual yet connected by an education which teaches them to love learning and love life.'
The school is a registered charity managed by a board of governors. Read more on the Charity Commission website.
The school was last inspected in February 2023. Read the inspection reports on the school's website.
Ed Balfour became the Head of Edge Grove in January 2023. He was previously Head of Beechwood Park School and Northbourne Park School.
