The Curriculum

Our curriculum goes above and beyond what most prep schools are able to offer with exceptional facilities and specialist subject teaching right from the early years, developing into a fully specialist teaching programme from Year 4.

Games & The Arts

Our impressive facilities, sport for all approach and specialist art, drama and music teaching spaces enable us to offer to provide a broad, rich curriculum and co-curricular programme.

Pastoral Care

We’re dedicated to equipping children with skills for life, while helping each of them grow in character and be the best they can, every single day. We believe happy children learn best and confident children go far.

Recent Scholarships

2019, 11 academic, art, music and sport scholarships; 2020 seven academic, art and sport scholarships; 2021 eight academic, art, drama and music scholarships.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

School should be fun. Offering an exceptionally broad curriculum and co-curricular programme creates opportunities for children to be excited by and truly engaged with their learning and leads naturally to academic progress. Promoting positive mental health and wellbeing is critical to our success.

Outstanding Characteristics

Banstead Prep School has been rated Excellent in all areas in an ISI Inspection in September 2021. The school provides wraparound care from 07:30 – 18:00 and an in-house holiday club. Sports facilities include an on-site swimming pool, all-weather pitch, netball court and full-size sports hall.

Children of all ages benefit from subject specialist teaching and use of dedicated teaching spaces for art, drama, food technology, music and science. Forest school for children in nursery to Year 2 and life skills lessons for children in Years 3 – 6 encourage the development of independent learning and creative problem solving skills.
