Kensington Prep School

596 Fulham Road, London SW6 5PA

Profile: Located towards the end of Fulham Road in Parsons Green, Kensington Prep School is one of the top prep schools in London, winning it the 2009/2010 Sunday Times Prep School of the Year award. Kensington Prep girls also frequently feature among Primary Mathematics Challenge medalists. It has been rated outstanding in all areas by the Independent Schools Inspectorate:

“Girls benefit from an interesting, challenging and broad educational experience which is outstanding”

“Girls are highly effective learners and their achievement is outstanding”

“Girls’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness is outstanding and reflects the values the school seeks to promote. The quality of pastoral care is outstanding and continues to be a major strength of the school”
(ISI Inspection 2009)

Admissions: Admission to Kensington Prep School is via assessment. Girls can be registered at any moment up to one year prior to their entry to Reception class (i.e. at the latest September 2011 for Sep 2012 entry). Assessments take place at the beginning of the Spring Term in January of the year of entry and appointment times are sent out at the end of October.

Exit Results: Kensington Prep girls are successful in gaining admission to the top London Senior schools, as generally 20-25% are offered places at St Paul’s Girls’ School and 50% are accepted to Godolphin and Latymer. About 25% of the class move on to boarding schools such as Wycombe Abbey, St Mary’s Ascot and Downe House (click here for a full list of senior school places).
