What says..

Main building is Tudor, lots of oak panelling, flagged floors, and even rumours of a ghost. Newer buildings for science, art and sport have been added, and the grounds are mature and delightful; 'this is a place for a sunlit childhood'. Sport is for all – the head is very pro everyone playing competitively and everyone has the opportunity to play in a match. Swimming and tennis for all throughout the year, plus athletics in the summer, and cross-country in the Michaelmas and Lent terms: not a place for couch potatoes...

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since September 2017, Nicola Mitchell, previously deputy head at Orley Farm. Has also taught at Edge Grove where she was, variously, head of geography, head of girls' games and director of studies. Three children, who have all joined the prep or Woodbridge School; she is keen on horse riding, swimming and skiing.


About half of year 3 is made up from pupils progressing up from the pre-prep department at 7; others join via test and interview from other local schools. Selective, but with scope for quite a range of ability; ‘we are looking for those who can explore all that’s on offer’. Places occasionally available in higher forms - always worth asking.
