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.
