Principal's Welcome

Thank you for taking time to visit our website.

Information about a school, however, is only part of the decision-making process we all go through when deciding what is the best educational path for our children’s future.

For many parents, the objective is a successful examination pass to the next school they have chosen for their child. We are proud to inform you that since the first stream of pupils from our school sat their entrance examinations for various acclaimed independent and public schools at the end of year 6, we have achieved a 100% pass rate.

However, education is not only about academic achievement. We believe we can offer a caring, emotionally satisfying, effective form of education, which fully prepares our pupils for the next crucial stage of their academic life. The full programme of lessons, sports and cultural activities we provide ensures that children will not only benefit from their education with us, but also will leave with many happy memories of their school days at Downham Preparatory School and Montessori Nursery.

Judged by Ofsted to be OUTSTANDING in March 2009 and OUTSTANDING in ALL Areas in November 2014. See the full report on the Ofsted website.
