What the school says...

Westbrook Hay is a wonderful co-education prep school located in 26 acres in the Bourne Valley close to the M25 and M1. It really is a beautiful safe haven for children to be educated in.
The academic results are excellent with the school achieving 100% success at placing children in their chosen schools. Sport is played at least four times a week with a vast array of activities as well. Children also have the opportunity to perform in one of the many productions held at the school and take dance and drama lessons in addition. ...Read more

What the parents say...

A happy and energetic school. The type of place that reminds you what childhood is all about. Set in beautiful grounds with open green spaces, trees to climb, a rockery that children can clamber over and woods that each year group build their own "camps" in (having changed into their tracksuits to save their uniforms!). Happy faces abound and the staff are very approachable and communicative. Small class sizes and both ends of the academic spectrum seem well catered for. Lots of sport and even opportunities to use the Snow Centre in Hemel Hemsptead for skiing activity option from year 3 up. Dance, music and drama also feature. Some of the school buildings need sprucing up-but which school doesn't have this issue. Limited use of an outdoor pool. Strong parents association.

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
