What says..

As you move up the school, the air of concentration increases but an element of fun still appears to remain on the agenda. Happily, a science class in year 5 were allowed to let out their stick insects, which they had hatched from eggs, showing that they were sophisticates at handling them compared to us, although the enjoyment quotient was probably similar. If you wanted to judge the school purely on academic success you would be lavish in your praise, as they have achieved 12 scholarships in the last two years...

What the school says...

Coworth Flexlands School is an independent prep school & nursery offering high-quality education for girls to age 11 and boys to age 7. Set in beautiful grounds between Chobham, Windlesham, and Sunningdale, the school is ideally located to provide our students with a stimulating environment to develop their skills and abilities.

Our pupils achieve highly and we are a happy school with small class sizes and specialist teaching from Nursery upwards. The curriculum is supported with boundless extra-curricular opportunities which all contribute to nurturing the best of every pupil.
Our two forest school practitioners and outdoor classroom set in the woods enable the children to have a real hands-on learning experience.

Coworth Flexlands is renowned for academic excellence. The girls move on to top senior schools in the UK, with many gaining scholarships each year. Our boys leave us at seven, well prepared for some of the top boys’ preparatory schools.

The school offers the convenience of optional wrap-around care and clubs for busy parents from 7.30am - 6pm and a wide range of on-site holiday activities.

Please do visit us on Open Morning or call for a personal tour.

Into the Skylark nursery at 3, first come, first served, with more joining further up the school, mainly in reception and year 3. Completely non-selective, although a very disruptive child with severe behavioural problems might stretch such a small school too far.

In the past they kept very quiet as word of mouth - together with a large proportion of siblings, including boys up to the...

Special Education Needs

Coworth Flexlands is a Prep School of approximately 150 pupils (nursery-year 6). The school recognises that all pupils have individual needs, most of which can be met within the normal environment of the classroom through a differentiated curriculum. The needs of a small number of pupils cannot be met fully without some special support. This additional support is offered as an integral part of the school's provision. The Special Needs Department aims to identify all children who need special consideration to support their physical, social, emotional or intellectual development. Some children are offered extra support within the classroom, others may require individual tuition.
