It goes without saying that Banstead Prep School has high academic expectations, but our curriculum goes far beyond what most prep schools are able to offer. Our exceptional facilities, dedicated staff and specialist subject teachers enable us to go above and beyond, to consistently offer our children that little bit more. We want exceeding your expectations to be the norm.
Our facilities lead the way, allowing all of the children to try something new, embrace the challenge it brings and develop characteristics that aren’t always associated with academic achievement, but are vital for learning and lifelong success – independence, courage, resilience and perseverance.
The pace of technological advances means the jobs many of our younger children will go into don’t even exist yet. With this in mind we believe it’s vital to equip every child with the adaptable, transferable skills, for whatever path they may take – and if it happens to be great fun at the same time, all the better!
