What the school says...
We could not have found a better school in the UK to bring out the best in both our boys (a Homefield parent)
Homefield is a top preparatory school in Surrey for 400 boys aged between three and thirteen. Founded in 1870, Homefield has its roots in the 19th century and its branches in the twenty-first. We are housed in an extensive purpose-built complex, with well-equipped science laboratories, large Art, DT and Music suites, complemented by a spacious Early Years Unit and a two-acre adjoining playing field.
The school is renowned for its intimacy and family atmosphere, small class sizes, the fulfilment of individual potential, the openness of communication, the provision of specialist teaching at the earliest opportunity, its commitment to best practice and its all-round academic, musical, dramatic, sporting and artistic achievements. Pupils make a strong contribution to their learning through their highly moivated and enthusiastic attitudes... The quality of pupils achievements and learning is excellent. (ISI Inspection, March 2013)
In the last ten years, the School has continued to achieve a 100% pass rate at Common Entrance to 46 senior schools, securing 50 awards in the last 2 years to Senior schools such as King's College, Wimbledon, Reed's School and Westminster School.

The curriculum is complemented by a multitude of clubs (over 50), such as fencing, golf, karate, judo, swimming, table tennis, tennis, squash, music bands and orchestras as well as trips, both in the UK and abroad.
