What the school says...

Milbourne Lodge is a selective Pre-Prep and Prep School 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. The latest Inspection report - September 2017 - classed the school 'Outstanding in All Areas'. The SIS Inspector commented that, "Milbourne Lodge provides an outstanding education for its pupils. The pupils’ academic attainment is very high and their achievements are exceptional."

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.
