The Curriculum

 The KGPS curriculum far exceeds the national curriculum and prepares all pupils for their 11+ examinations in Year 6. The curriculum is underpinned by the school’s aim to see every child as an individual, championing curiosity, creativity, confidence and collaboration across all areas of school life and learning. 


KGPS provides an excellent and specialist co-curricular provision in Languages, Art & DT, Music, Computing, Drama and Sports. The school also offers full wrap-around care from 8am – 6pm, including an extensive and wide-ranging extra-curricular club and trips.

Pastoral Care

At KGPS, every staff member knows every pupil and the strong relationships across the whole-school community are evident in both impressive pupil outcomes and the happiness of staff, pupils and parents. The school operates a genuine ‘open door’ policy for parents and this further strengthens the partnership between school and parents. Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning, they are motivated and able to work together.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Children thrive in an environment where they feel safe, happy, respected and inspired. Excellent education must reach beyond a prescribed knowledge-based curriculum and challenge pupils to ask questions, think in an abstract and critical way, nurture adaptable mindsets, and an independent and articulate voice. The school culture should embrace who the child is becoming while they succeed and achieve academically, recognising the importance of quality and extensive co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities as well as maintaining high expectations in the core curriculum. 

Outstanding Characteristics

The school site is unique for a London Preparatory School, located in an idyllic countryside setting. The school is part of the Gardener Schools Group, who opened Kew Green Nursery in September 2022, located close to the main Prep school. Children who attend Kew Green Nursery have a guaranteed place in Reception at KGPS. As part of the 11+ programme at KGPS, Year 6 pupils have a priority Year 7 place at both GSG Senior Schools (Kew House School and Maida Vale School).
