What the school says...

Gresham's Prep School is a very special place. We cater for around 236 pupils, about a quarter of whom are boarders. We offer a broad, forward-looking curriculum, a vast range of extra-curricular activities and outstanding pastoral care and support. In 2016, the School was awarded ‘excellent’ in all nine categories following an inspection by ISI Inspectorate. ‘Excellent’ is the ISI descriptor for the Ofsted term ‘outstanding’.

Above all, we offer the space and care for your child to develop; their happiness and progress is an absolute priority. We want every child to feel encouraged, confident and at home. That way they can develop strong roots that will help them grow into happy, well balanced and responsible adults. We also value the individual and want all our pupils to be proud of themselves, their abilities and their individuality. In addition, we make sure that children have plenty of time to be children and that play, fun and laughter feature strongly. Above all this is a happy, kind, busy and inclusive school; please come and visit us and experience it for yourself.

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.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Parents queue up to praise this relaxed and happy school where 'childhood still seems to last the right length of time'. One parent thought, 'My son came out of his shell here, he became a different boy'. A number of families have both Norfolk and London bases, but choose Gresham’s for its 'less pressured atmosphere'


Since 2003, Mr James Quick (50s) BA in economic history, PGCE (Durham); began teaching at The Dragon School, then St Edward’s, Oxford, where he was housemaster. Did teacher exchange at Geelong College, Australia before coming here. His wife, Kim, teaches English, history and Latin and their four daughters, all but one at university stage or beyond, were at Gresham’s. Sparkling-eyed with a youthful appearance and manner, he is clearly at ease with both staff and pupils, but does not overdo the...
