Head’s Welcome

A very warm welcome to Danes Hill School!  

Danes Hill School is a popular co-educational day Prep School and is home to around 700 pupils aged 3 – 13.  We are a school that has been described as ‘outstanding’ at the last ISI Inspection with an undeniably impressive site, set on 55 acres. Our values are passion, courage, growth and respect and I believe that if children are happy, they flourish, reach their full potential and carry a love of learning with them for the rest of their lives.  

At Danes Hill School, we want children to enjoy their childhood for as long as possible, but we also want them to develop and progress within a stimulating environment that offers many opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.   

I am keen to ensure that all our pupils are ‘future ready’, and we offer a curriculum that focuses on the skills of collaboration, communication, creativity, problem solving and teamwork. Our Year 8 pupils secure many scholarships each year and gain places to a wide variety of leading Independent senior schools, both locally and throughout the country.  

In the end, what do parents want from a Prep School education? I believe that they want, outstanding teaching and learning; communication and trust; and individualised care for their child – we strive to meet those aims within a friendly and family environment.  

I look forward to welcoming you to our school; there is a positive energy about the place and it is infectious!   

Do come and see us!
