What the school says...

At Fairfield Preparatory School, children discover a learning environment which is happy and stimulating, at the heart of a vibrant school community. Children enjoy first-class teaching with the facilities to match, including a brand new school building with a dedicated Kindergarten Unit, the Fairfield Forest School, and the ‘All-Steinway’ LES Music School. The school offers a broad and balanced education appropriate to the needs of children in its care, which combines traditional and family values within an enlightened and ever-challenging curriculum.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

What The Good Schools Guide says

We asked him what his teachers were like. 'Kind and funny,' he replied. 'How?” we questioned. He munched away. 'Well, like at assembly Mr. Earnshaw told us how he became bald.

Special Education Needs

As an academically selective school, all children (including our 3+ Kindergarten pupils) must pass an entry assessment to join one of our classes from 4+ upwards. Following this, provision for any child with additional needs will be made in the most appropriate way, within the constraints of available resources. As a school we have experience of supporting pupils with the additional needs, but we do not have specialist provision for these.
