Prestfelde School

Shrewsbury's co-educational prep school for boys and girls

Welcome to Prestfelde – an independent preparatory school in Shrewsbury for children aged 3 to 13. Based in 30 acres of quiet parkland, we are one of Shropshire’s leading independent schools, with a reputation for academic excellence but also offering a broad-based education suitable for every child. Primarily a day school with the option of flexible and weekly boarding, there are approximately 310 boys and girls at the school. There is an average class size of 15 children. The school was assessed as excellent (the highest possible rating) in all key areas by the Independent School Inspectorate in the last inspection in 2015.

By growing up in a close knit, nurturing environment to the age of thirteen, children can remain children for longer. They are given opportunities to try new things without fear of failure, they have time to laugh and enjoy themselves, and they are allowed to develop at their own pace and build their self-confidence in safe and caring surroundings.
