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'
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. ...Read more

What The Good Schools Guide says
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 bonhomie in chance encounters. Has a modest manner and the attractive quality of being quick to praise colleagues. Says, 'Everyone can chip in ideas and rely on each other'. Continues to teach his subjects, history and classical studies, 'doing what everyone else does here'. Says there is no defined Gresham’s ‘product’ as such,...
