What the school says...

Edge Grove offers a flexible boarding experience for pupils from age 7. We are conveniently located close to the M1 and M25 motorways, and only 15 miles from central London. First-rate teaching, excellent pastoral care, superb facilities, and a unique family atmosphere all combine to make Edge Grove a very special place.
