Eaton House Belgravia, 3 – 5 Eaton Gate, London SW1W 9BA

Profile: Eaton House Belgravia is a non-selective’ pre-preparatory school for boys aged 4 – 8 that forms part of the Eaton House Group of Schools. It prepares boys for the 7+/8+ exams for entry into leading preparatory schools. It draws its pupils from a wider area in Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea and Fulham. Though Ofsted only rates the school as “good”, the exit results suggest the school does a very good job in placing its boys into highly competitve preparatory schools in the 7+/8+ exams.

Admissions: There is no assessment for Reception entry into Eaton House Schools. Places are allocated on a first come first served basis. Further details are given on the admissions section of the school website:

We are proud to operate a first come first served entry process into our schools at Nursery and Kindergarten level. As a result we recommend early registration where possible. To register your son or daughter with us you will need to complete a registration form for the school that you are interested in. Please contact either the Schools office on 020 7924 6000, or online via the prospectus request form.

We will send you a prospectus and registration form in the post.
The registration form should be completed and returned to the School office, for the attention of Mrs Elisabeth Milton, the Schools Registrar. The registration fee is £30 for a waiting list place and £50 for a definite place.
All parents of children with definite places will be invited to attend a meeting with the head teacher and have a tour of the school approximately a year prior to their children joining the school.

Parents who have been allocated a definite place are invited to visit the school and meet the Headmaster during the Summer term, one year prior to entry, at which time a deposit is required to secure the place“.

Exit Results: Running only from 4-8, boys take the 7+ or 8+ exams for entry into leading preparatory schools. The school lists the following leavers destinations in the Exam Results section of its website, which suggests very good success in placing their boys to London’s most attractive preparatory schools.
