Top 100 UK Preparatory Schools

Monday 27th November 2017

Until just over a year ago our inspection authority used to be OFSTED. We then joined the IAPS (the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools) and fell under the remit of ISI (the Independent Schools Inspectorate).

Ofsted do not publish the results of independent prep schools, but ISI do, and we have discovered that our Key Stage 2 (Year 6) SATs results from 2016 have catapulted us directly into the Top 100 Preparatory Schools in England
at position 64, as published in the Sunday Times of 19th
November 2017.

This includes all preparatory school and all junior departments of Public Schools that sit SATS.


Parents, pupils and staff are thrilled at this news. Come and visit us and see for yourselves the wonderful facilities and excellent teaching that support this remarkable fete.

Congratulations to the staff involved whose hard work and dedication has been rewarded with this most prestigious result, and of course, to the pupils in our 2015/2016 Year 6 cohort.

Our children have a 'can-do' attitude to life which has come directly from attending Abbey School
