The Curriculum

We offer a full and rich curriculum combining the traditional academic subjects with the more creative and physical elements of school life. Our enthusiastic and dedicated teaching staff work hard to motivate pupils and to foster within them a love of learning.

Games & The Arts

The school has imaginative drama, dynamic art, and vibrant music departments, with a wide range of sports and extra-curricular activities. Enriching and challenging opportunities encourage independent thinkers.

Pastoral Care

We value highly the pastoral care which we give, and are proud of the warm, nurturing ethos of the school. In addition to guiding pupils to high academic achievement, our programme of learning celebrates personal strengths, builds confidence from an early age and recognises the importance of self-esteem. We encourage our pupils to develop a sense of self discipline, responsibility and courtesy, as well as sensitivity to the needs of others.

Outstanding Characteristics

From 2023, CBPPS will come together with neighbouring Orchard House School to form a new premier prep school for Chiswick under the Orchard House name. A seven-figure redevelopment both schools’ facilities is underway. 

The new school will include full refurbishment of all classrooms and learning spaces; brand-new STEAM centre (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Maths); a student wellbeing space; sports facilities at the Old Actonians Sports Ground and Rocks Lane featuring football, cricket, rugby and hockey pitches, netball courts, all weather pitches for lacrosse and a sports field. Alongside this will be three natural, ergonomic outside spaces with extra playground areas.
