Danes Hill School is widely recognised as one of the leading co-educational day preparatory schools in the country. Situated in 55 acres of landscaped ground in the village of Oxshott, Surrey, Danes Hill provides children aged 3 to 13 with a dynamic and exciting education.
At Danes Hill School we pride ourselves in being a non-selective school and our admissions process is designed to identify children who are able to benefit from our balanced and well-rounded education. An offer of a place will be made if we feel Danes Hill is the right school for your child.
The first three years of school – Nursery and Reception – are together called the Early Years. The Danes Hill Pre-Prep school aims to help all children to take their first learning steps in comfort, safety and confidence.
The Prep School is divided into the Junior School (Years 2 to 5), and Upper School (Years 6 to 8), each with its own Head, its own assemblies and traditions, and very much its own ethos. Children are encouraged to feel allegiance to their own particular section of the school, and this sectional subdivision ensures that the school never feels overwhelmingly big.
A child’s school days should be filled with excitement and wonder, creating memories that they will treasure for years to come. Danes Hill School is the perfect platform for children to discover their passions, make lifelong friendships and believe in themselves.
Our brilliant parents' association, the Friends of Danes Hill, organised an unforgettable Christmas Fayre for the school community, with the support of our events, site and grounds team, it was a day to remember! The Pre-Prep choir opened the event and with Mrs Ruding-Bryan at the helm, it was... a sensational start to the Fayre. Watch this space for more magical moments from a memorable morning of festive fun!
It is a real delight to see our senior pupils embracing the great outdoors during their lunch break. The new Year 8 Common Room facilities have been a great addition to school life and even our teachers can't resist a rally of table tennis!
Throwback Thursday! Last year's Christmas Fayre was an unforgettable day!
