Virtual Open Day

Welcome to Banstead Prep School

The best way to find out more about Banstead Prep School is, of course, to visit us. Whilst we can’t currently offer our usual Open Mornings, or tours of the school whilst children are on site, we hope that this virtual experience will help to give you a feel for our school.   You can explore our senior school standard facilities and spacious grounds via the interactive map, hear from the Headteacher, Mr Mike Gibb, and other key members of staff, and see school life through the eyes of our Year 6 Ambassadors, who usually speak at Open Morning events.

The Admissions Office remains open and Mrs Adrienne Forster, Head of Admissions can guide you through the Admissions process and answer any questions you may have.   If you would like to find out more, she can arrange for you to meet virtually with one of the Senior Leadership Team or visit the site during the school holidays.
