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 school is also proud of its county and national representatives in table-tennis, squash, athletics, swimming, soccer, football, rugby, cricket and chess. 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. Homefield was the top UK chess school recently and annually has qualifying teams for the national Chess championship.
Academic scholarships and occasional bursaries are available.
Daily minibuses run to and from Wimbledon.
Breakfast and after-school clubs as well as holiday camps are organised for busy working parents.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
