Kew House School is an independent day school for boys and girls aged 11 to 18 in South West London.
The school takes 'a modern and pioneering approach to every aspect of school life.' It was founded in 2013 by teachers Maria and Edward Gardener and occupies a site near Kew Bridge.
It is part of a group of schools, including two prep schools (Ravenscourt Park Preparatory School and Kew Green Preparatory School), and it was the parents of children at these schools who urged the Directors to open a co-educational secondary school, first with Kew House and then later in 2020 with Maida Vale School. Kew House has almost 600 pupils.
Inspections provide parents with detailed information from which to assess key aspects of a school. Find out more about why inspections matter.
The school was last inspected in April 2022. Read the inspection reports on the school's website.
The school is owned by Gardener Schools Group and managed by a board of directors. Read more on the group website website.
What makes Kew House School different?
Attain asked the school, what makes Kew House School different – and why should parents consider it?
Kew House School is a thriving, modern school that aims to deliver on young people's potential whilst reducing negative mental health impacts and engendering the skills, values and attitudes needed for our evolving world.
Personal tutors meet daily with their tutees, to "walk next to them", prompting them to consider the question "what can I do differently next time?" Reflecting on the lessons learnt is the key to building confident, able young people.
Our pupils flourish across the all areas of school life, from international sporting and cultural success, through creative arts, to academic success and post-18 pathways. The 2022 ISI inspection recognised the school's success by its "Excellent" judgement on the quality of education provided.
