Banstead Prep School is a co-educational prep school and nursery for girls and boys aged 2-11, where there’s more to a good education. Education with Character is the ethos that sits at the very heart of the school, whose senior school standard facilities and subject-specialist teaching supports an exciting and innovative curriculum that goes above and beyond what most prep schools can offer.
Banstead Prep is welcoming a new Headteacher from January 2021. Jon Chesworth, currently Deputy Head at Thomas’ Clapham, is excited to join the community, “Banstead Prep is a dynamic, fun and caring environment that everyone is proud to be a part of and I was convinced it was where I wanted to be from my very first visit.” Jon has been teaching for over 17 years in both prep and senior schools, starting his career in Physical Education and more recently taking a further interest in pastoral care and wellbeing. His ethos is a natural fit for Banstead Prep: “School should be fun. Happy children flourish and happy children learn. I’m passionate about the importance of a broad curriculum, which creates opportunities for children to be excited and truly engaged with their learning and leads naturally to excellent academic progress.”
The school continues to provide the usual broad range of specialist teaching and opportunities, including Forest School, Life Skills and Swimming, all on site. The full programme of co-curricular clubs, breakfast club and after school care is also available to extend the school day for working parents, whether you’ve gone back to the office or are still working from home. Visit at a time to suit you by experiencing a Virtual Open Day, available 24/7 on the website or contact Admissions to arrange a personal tour outside of school hours.
