Welcome from the Head


I feel very privileged to be starting on this journey as the school’s first Headmistress, leading the Banstead Prep School community to excellence and beyond.

When we open in September, we will be warmly welcoming boys and girls aged 2-11, along with the youngest children in our nursery.

All of us involved at the start will work together to establish our new school for generations to come. This is a unique opportunity to create a forward-thinking school, grounded in the solid foundations and values of a traditional prep school including respect, nurture and academic rigour. The facilities will enable us to offer the broadest opportunities leading to an engaging, innovative and exciting curriculum.

Our mission is ‘The Best in Everyone’, reflecting our ambition to offer every child every opportunity to reach their full potential. From the very youngest children through to those preparing for secondary education, Banstead Prep School will provide the educational stimulus, environment for happy learning, and the pastoral support to meet every interest, need and background.

Building on the successes and track record of its predecessor schools, Banstead Prep School will be a key feeder school to the most successful secondary independent and grammar schools in the local area and further afield.

We will ensure that every child leaves us ready to be confident and be prepared for the 11+ examinations and beyond.

Outstanding facilities, a broad curriculum and enriched co-curricular provision will provide everything that families are looking for in a day prep setting whilst giving every pupil the best start in their educational and life journey.

I look forward to personally welcoming you and your family to the school.
