What says..

School offers a traditional, classical education for bright, motivated and energetic pupils in pursuit of excellence. ‘It’s a great example of the fact that you don’t need technology, but great teachers,’ said a parent.  No mollycoddling on the curriculum – a happy Milbourne child will generally be a robust character and a very bright, sporty type who doesn't feel the cold. Compulsory outside sport every afternoon, rain or shine, plus necessary moving around between buildings.  ‘My daughter loves it,’ one parent told us. ‘It’s very rough and tumble.’

What the school says...

Milbourne Lodge provides a first class education for boys and girls aged 4-13. The philosophy of the school is based on combining the proven values of a traditional education with the positive and encouraging environment children need to achieve their full potential. The school strives to turn out not only well educated children but also confident, well rounded ones who really get the most out of their prep school days.

We have an outstanding record of success at both Scholarship and Common Entrance level. In addition there are strong Art, Music, IT and Sports departments with games played every day. Situated in over 8 acres of beautiful grounds, the school is within easy access of the A3 and M25 and a daily bus runs from SW London.

Following an extensive building programme a new Science Lab and 4 new classrooms have been opened and from September 2016 the school will have 2 form entry in both the Pre-Prep and Prep School.
