Headmaster's Welcome

Ravenscourt Park Preparatory School is a lively, co-educational and non-selective independent school for children aged 4 to 11. The school provides an education of the highest quality with an engaging curriculum that is varied, exciting and forward-looking, whilst also preparing pupils for transfer at the end of Year 6 to some of the best and most selective independent schools.

We are a thriving school, taking pride in a holistic approach to the attainment of each child’s potential - intellectual, physical, social and spiritual. Our talented and dedicated team of teachers nurture and inspire the children so that they flourish academically and emotionally.

While our pupils are with us, they will engage in the excitement of learning and develop the confidence to question, analyse and express their opinions. The stimulating environment at RPPS encourages children to become resourceful, resilient, reflective and enthusiastic learners who are able to learn from their mistakes and build on their successes. 

We form strong and trusting partnerships with our parents. We operate an ‘Open Door Policy', where parents’ comments, views, contributions and suggestions are valued. We also welcome parents’ direct support with activities such as hearing children read, accompanying day visits and at special events throughout the year.

We engender in our pupils the values of respect, compassion, tolerance and community responsibility. At RPPS, laughter and learning go hand-in-hand and our children leave us at the end of Year 6 ready to make the most of the opportunities ahead of them, both at their choice of senior school and in later life.

Our website provides you with a flavour of life at RPPS. Please do come to one of our open mornings, or arrange a separate appointment, so that you are able to visit us to see for yourself what we offer our pupils.
