What the school says...

Edgeborough is an IAPS School, situated on a 50 acre estate in Frensham, Surrey. The grounds also house activity trails, adventure playgrounds and a science conservation pond. Our all round education is based upon outstanding teaching, wonderful facilities (such as a swimming pool, theatre and sports hall), space and fun.

Pupils are prepared for entry both to the local Grammar Schools and to local and National Boarding schools. Scholarships to Senior Schools are frequently awarded for academic work, sports, art, drama music and all round leadership skills.

The curriculum puts a strong emphasis on the development of learning skills. Languages are also strongly promoted and part of the middle school curriculum is taught in French.

The strong boarding community gives the school its family atmosphere. Breakfast and After School care clubs offer logistical help to parents of Day Pupils. Day and residential trips both at home and abroad are a regular feature of the school term as is an active, healthy lifestyle.

The Headmaster, Dan Thornburn, welcomes the opportunity to take prospective parents on a personal tour of the school and meet our pupils. Appointments are made on an individual basis at your convenience.

What the parents say...

Edgeborough is a happy, warm, family focused school. The new headmaster (2017), Dan Thornburn is focused, accomplished and charismatic and continues to take the school from strength to strength all built around a strong teaching team, kind and happy attitude and family spirited ethos. Edgeborough is not a hot-house and doesn’t aspire to be but it gets fantastic common entrance results and entrance to all the top-named senior schools with a focus on getting the basics right, all the way from the pre-prep and then challenging all children to meet their potential as they progress within the school. It works. The class sizes are very small allowing a very personal teaching approach. Edgeborough children are happy, confident and polite and have access to an extensive range of facilities - be it classroom-based, on the sports field with extensive (& very beautiful) grounds, pitches, astro-turf, an indoor sports hall and swimming pool and also in the music and drama department where Edgeborough children are not just encouraged to learn a musical instrument or get involved in school productions but are enthusiastically supported to do so. They are well rounded children who are given the opportunities to achieve on the academic, sporting, artistic and musical fronts with a strong, nurturing team of staff to help them. The facility to drop them early for breakfast club (a huge treat in our house) and for them to stay to finish their prep and even eat supper, as well as hotel style boarding, also makes Edgeborough a very flexible school for the working and busy parent. My two children feel very happy and lucky to be part of it
