What says..

Current head is credited with having pulled the school up by its bootstraps academically. It has grown both in size and standing on his watch. One parent commented, ‘It used to just be a sweet, local school before Mr Hepher took over. He is much more ambitious.' Parents are encouraged to become involved, from hearing children read to giving career talks. Strong sense of community here and very active PTA. ‘When you go into the school, there is a smile on the staff’s faces'...

What the school says...

Entry. Early Registration for Nursery places, Early registration and assessment for Pre-Prep and Prep School admissions. Priority given to internal Nursery candidates.

Ethos. Eaton Square School is one of the few co-educational day schools in the heart of London offering nursery, pre-preparatory and preparatory education. The School maintains high standards and encourages in every child an enthusiasm for learning, good manners, self-discipline and, in all things, a determination to do their best and realise their potential.. The ISI inspection (2005) indicated that personal development of pupils was a notable strength of the school. The School offers a stretching, challenging approach to learning that emphasises achievement and builds confidence. Great emphasis is placed on experiential learning including ski trips, classical tours of Rome and Pompeii, and a half term spent in a French chateau in Sauveterre in Year Seven.

Academic Life. From age specialist subject teachers continue the curriculum in preparation for the Common Entrance Examinations for senior English Public Schools, for girls at age 11 and boys at age 13. Networked ICT is introduced from the age of 3 and it is an integral part of the syllabus. All classrooms are equipped with interactive white boards and data projectors. The School also benefits from a new Art and Science block with separate science laboratory and a wonderfully equipped Art, Design and Technology Studio.

Sport & the Arts. Wide range of sports offered, the School has successful teams competing against other London schools. Music is a flourishing department within the School. Instruction in music, art and DT is included for all children from Nursery School upwards. Drama is integrated within the curriculum and each child takes part in at least two public productions every year. The Art and Design room provides an outstanding resource and is equipped with a wide selection of facilities, including a kiln for ceramic work.
Further information and a prospectus may be obtained from the Registrar.
