Welcome to Prestfelde, one of the UK's leading independent prep schools.
The very best schools develop a love of learning. They challenge, inspire and provide outstanding experiences. They build children’s confidence and self-esteem within an ambitious and nurturing environment. Prestfelde does this brilliantly.
The pupils’ academic successes along with their achievements in so many areas of school life, in and out of the classroom, only tell part of the story at Prestfelde. Pupil wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do. Children are genuinely happy here and the quality of relationships is a cornerstone of our community.
We are proud of all the children at Prestfelde, valuing them as individuals. The strength of character and skills gained during their time here ensure they have the best possible start in life and are ready for the next stage of their education.
Choosing the right school for your child is a crucial decision for all parents. I would add that getting it right from a young age is even more important. I hope our website gives you an insight into Prestfelde, but a visit really is the best way to experience it for yourself.
I look forward to meeting you and your children.
Mr. Nick Robinson

My daughter went from practically school-refusing when she arrived to becoming completely immersed in school life and is always enthusiastic about going everyday.
Suffice to say, I then moved our other daughter into Little P shortly after my eldest joined and it has been the absolute making of both children.
