What the school says...

Kew Green Preparatory School was opened in 2004 by London Preparatory Schools Ltd, the owners of Ravenscourt Park Preparatory School. In its short life the school has achieved excellent results and has a lengthy waiting list especially for entrance at Reception. A few places are available in Yr1 to Yr6. We operate daily bus services from Chiswick, Barnes and Richmond.
As well as being in an exceptionally beautiful position on the River Thames, beside Kew Green, each school term is packed with activity where a loving, energetic and happy atmosphere is generated. Recent months have brought residential trips to Norfolk, a production of Oklahoma, our Thames Heritage Tapestry displayed at Hampton Court Palace, our artwork displayed at The National Gallery, a Netball Tour to Brussels as well as our numerous after school clubs.

A very visible presence throughout the school, he teaches English and reasoning to year 6 and is often in and out of the classrooms. Enthusiastic yet calm, he gets down to the kids’ level when talking to them. ‘Unlike many heads in the private sector, he praises the children directly rather than turning his back on them to tell the parent,’ one parent...
