We think that our school is a very special place, offering a broad curriculum, a vast range of extra curricular activities and outstanding pastoral support.

Gresham’s Prep School is a very special place. We cater for around 200 pupils, about a quarter of whom are boarders. We offer a broad, forward-looking curriculum, a vast range of extra-curricular activities and outstanding pastoral care and support. Above all, we offer the space and care for your child to develop; their happiness and progress is an absolute priority. We want every child to feel encouraged, confident and at home. That way they can develop strong roots that will help them grow into happy, well balanced and responsible adults. We also value the individual and want all our pupils to be proud of themselves, their abilities and their individuality. In addition, we make sure that children have plenty of time to be children and that play, fun and laughter feature strongly. Above all this is a happy, kind, busy and inclusive school; please come and visit us and experience it for yourself.
