Why Lingfield Prep?

Making decisions about a child's education can be a challenging and sometimes daunting task. We understand that selecting a school for your child can be a huge commitment. So what makes Lingfield Prep so special? 

Exceptional Pastoral Care

In our warm and supportive family school, our priority is happy, settled children who look forward to coming to school every day. We know each and every child and ensure that they are supported, listened to, and given the opportunity to flourish.

Our Values

Our Motto, ‘I Can, I Know I Can’ is at the heart of the school and promotes confidence, resilience and self-belief that guides every member of our community as we learn and achieve together.

We provide a seamless transition from Prep to Senior School. Without the added pressure of entrance examinations, we can focus on making their prep years truly memorable.

Smaller Classes & Individual Teaching

High staff-to-pupil ratios and smaller teaching groups, especially in Maths and English, mean children make rapid academic progress. Teachers can also provide significantly more individual attention. 

Extensive Extra Curricular Programme

Learning at Lingfield Prep happens everywhere! With more than 60 clubs and activities to choose from, children can learn new sports, build skills, challenge their bodies and minds and develop their talents. Whether a child is sporty, creative, musical or academic, there is something for everyone.

Excellence in the Arts

Music and Drama are all taught by talented professionals in specialist facilities.

Over 65% of our Prep pupils play an instrument and over 1/3 are in a choir.

Competitive Sports for All

We take full advantage of our sports grounds, all-weather courts and indoor sports hall. We also have the added benefit of using the extensive facilities at the Senior School, fielding teams and coaching to suit all abilities in regular competitive fixtures against other schools.

Beautiful Countryside Setting

The Prep School is located on the outskirts of the beautiful village of Lingfield in Surrey, set amidst acres of fields and woodland. With extensive outdoor play areas, a forest school, orchards, playing fields and a pond, the children have fresh air and space to roam. It is an inspiring place to learn and grow.
