About our Prep

A Prep School that opens doors

Pupils are well prepared for the requirements of entrance examinations and the next stage of their education […] the large majority of pupils have been successful in reaching the destination school of their choice. Pupils are well prepared for the future. (OFSTED 2016)

The aim of our Prep School department is to prepare your child for the next stage of their academic career, which they can meet with confidence, enthusiasm and curiosity. 

Opportunities for pupils to contribute in school life throughout their time with Griffin House gives your child a deeper sense of responsibility, and promotes kindness and respect. We are proud to boast specialist classrooms and our curriculum remains broad and balanced, further encouraging your child to reach their potential.

We understand that facing your 11+ exams may be a rather stressful time. Small class sizes and dedicated teachers throughout our Prep School ensure that your child is supported and encouraged, both academically and otherwise, to reach their full potential and secondary school of choice.
