Hello & Welcome to Snaresbrook Prep!

  • Welcome from the Head

    We are a small independent school for children aged three-and-a-half to eleven. In our last inspection report we were graded excellent with the inspection team acknowledging that ‘Pupils feel extremely well-prepared for the next stages in their education’. We are small enough for all adults and children to know each other.

    We provide a rounded education covering every aspect of our children’s early development. The curriculum is designed to prepare pupils for independent, state and grammar school entrance as well as scholarship examinations.

    Our guiding principle is to find the right and the best approach for every child and to install a sense of fun and discovery into the learning process.

    We look forward to showing you around.
    Ralph Dalton – Headteacher

    We take pupils from age three-and-a-half to eleven. Children enter the Nursery and ideally continue through the school to Year 6. All of our classes are small and include both boys and girls.

    We provide a rounded primary education covering every aspect of your child’s early development. The curriculum is designed to prepare pupils for public and grammar school entrance and scholarship examinations. Each child is introduced to subjects with great care and sensitivity by working individually, in small groups or with the whole class. We try to find the approach which enables each child to learn and work with enjoyment and enthusiasm and to relate well with fellow pupils.

    Informal visits allow prospective parents to get a feel for the school and to see the children at work. Parents are invited to organise an informal visit by contacting the office on 020 8989 2394. We hold two general open days during the year, usually in March and October. Details of the dates will be advertised on the front page of our website and in the local press. All interested families are welcome to come along, no appointment is necessary. Families will be shown around by one of Year 6 pupils and will have the opportunity to speak to staff as they go around the school.
