Dear Parents

Kew Green Preparatory School opened in September 2004 as sister school to Ravenscourt Park Preparatory School in Chiswick. It is owned by Gardener Schools Group Ltd, a group founded by fully qualified and experienced teachers.  I had the pleasure of joining Kew Green as Deputy Head in 2005. Now as Headmaster I am proud of how we have grown and of what we offer and represent.

The school is housed in an attractive building backing onto the Thames. With Kew Green cricket pitch directly opposite and the famous Royal Botanical Gardens next door, the site is a haven of peace and quiet.

You can have every confidence that Kew Green will provide an education of the highest quality for your child. We believe that effective learning is achieved without pressure in a warm and nurturing environment. We are committed to co-education, opposed to "cramming" and work on the basis of keeping pupils from age 4 to secondary transfer at 11 years. Within this timescale we are able to allow children to develop at their own pace, providing a rich curriculum where Music, Art, Sport and the Humanities are given a full weighting with Maths, Science and English. This invariably produces excellent academic results.

We strive to inculcate in our pupils a proper sense of self-esteem and respect for others. Above all, we want our children to be clamoring at our gates every morning and to show a marked reluctance to leave at the end of the day!

I can assure you that neither my staff nor I will spare any effort in order to make your child's years at Kew Green Preparatory School happy, fulfilling and successful.

Mr Jem Peck, Headmaster
