Welcome from the Head

I am delighted to welcome you to Banstead Prep School. We are a forward-thinking school, grounded in the solid foundations and values of a traditional prep school including respect, nurture and academic rigour. Our fantastic facilities enable us to offer the broadest opportunities as part of an engaging, innovative and exciting curriculum.

Our mission is ‘The best in everyone’, reflecting our ambition to offer every child every opportunity to reach their full potential. From the very youngest children in our nursery through to those preparing for secondary education, Banstead Prep School provides the educational stimulus, environment for happy learning, and the pastoral support to meet every interest, need and background.

We ensure that every child leaves us ready to be confident and be prepared for the 11+ examinations and beyond. Banstead Prep School will be a key feeder school to the most successful secondary independent and grammar schools in the local area and further afield across Surrey.

Outstanding facilities, a broad curriculum and an enriched co-curricular provision provide everything families are looking for in a day prep setting whilst giving every pupil the best start in their educational and life journey.

I look forward to personally welcoming you and your family to the school.


Vicky Ellis
