Broomwood Pre-Prep and Prep Schools


#BeYourBEST, A happy childhood, outstanding results

Broomwood is a leading group of pre-prep and prep schools based between the green spaces of Clapham and Wandsworth commons. If you walk regularly in the area, you will notice their distinctive aqua blue and navy uniforms.  The schools provides an extraordinary education for girls and boys from 3-13 years. They enjoy a proper childhood, full of fun and adventure and benefit from some of the best school facilities in London. Broomwood is blessed with wonderful outdoor spaces and children have the use of extensive amenities from dedicated science labs, music, art and cookery schools to DT and IT suites.   Children go on to win places at top day and boarding schools, either at 11 or 13+. Last year they were awarded 22 scholarships to competitive senior schools, like Dulwich,  Epsom, JAGS, Hampton, Woldingham, Whitgift, Brighton, Harrow and Marlborough.

A different kind of School

Broomwood has a unique approach to education:  All children are educated together in Pre-Prep until Year 3 (aged 7). They then move on to single-sex prep schools, Broomwood Prep – Girls and Broomwood Prep – Boys. It’s no secret that boys and girls have different emotional and educational needs, especially at the prep school level, and Broomwood provides an environment where children can develop at their own pace, taking advantage of specialist teaching and pastoral care. Unlike regular single-sex schools, however, they come together for extension and social activities in a co-educational setting. They belong to the same house system and regularly take part in competitions, sporting, drama, music and creative activities, as well as mixed residential trips.  About two thirds of Broomwood pupils move on with confidence to co-ed senior schools.

The schools share the same uniform, values and approach. The heads work together across the sites to ensure that every child fulfils and exceeds his or her potential. There’s also the brand-new Pre-school, Little Broomwood (aged 3-4 years) which opened this September. It’s located in The Vicarage, the early years setting and has a wonderful free-flow environment where children can move from the bright and spacious classrooms to explore the garden complete with mud-kitchen and adventure playground.  Little Broomwood children move seamlessly into Reception, where we have a further intake of pupils from local nurseries.

Your local school

The school sites are within walking distance of each other and are well served by the school buses and public transport. Choosing a school can be a bewildering process and families are encouraged to visit Broomwood in person.  You can either join one of the group tours, or arrange a personal visit. Either way, you have the opportunity to meet children and members of staff and you will be assured of a warm welcome.
