Banstead Prep isn’t a feeder for any particular senior school, rather we work to help parents identify aspirational but realistic school choices. We prepare the children through broad curriculum teaching within the normal school timetable to ensure every child leaves us for their senior school of choice feeling valued, prepared, confident and ready to thrive.
