Kensington Prep School is an award-winning school for girls aged 4-11, situated in spacious grounds with netball and tennis courts in the heart of Fulham. It encourages independence, individuality and questioning thinkers and wins praise for its nurturing approach, rich curriculum and outstanding academic results. The school’s girls gain places at some of the best secondary schools and boarding schools in London and the UK.

Ken Prep is a very happy place to grow up in. My teachers really make learning fun.
Year 6 pupil

Kensington Prep received the highest possible grade in the recent inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectors: ‘the quality of pupils’ learning and achievements is exceptional’. Very few schools achieve this (rather like an A* at GCSE or A level). The school has also been named the Sunday Times top prep school in the country for its consistently strong academic results, inspiring leadership and innovative curriculum. Its aim is to equip girls for a changing world. It helps them to think confidently and creatively, to take risks and leave with a love of learning.

As Sunday Times Parent Power Editor Alistair McCall commented: “Exam success is almost incidental at this school, a by-product of everything else it does – which is how it should be. The result is happy confident girls.”
