About Edge Grove School

Founded in 1935, we are a vibrant and successful day and boarding prep (IAPS) school for boys and girls aged between 3 and 13, characterised by a genuine commitment to the pursuit of excellence. There are currently around 450 pupils at the School with a family style environment for our 50 boarding beds utilised by a range of full, weekly and flexi boarders. The School employs around 110 staff.

We are fortunate to be situated within 28 acres of parkland, only 15 miles from central London and conveniently located close to the M1 and M25 motorways. Our wonderful setting and facilities ensure our children are exposed to a wide range of experiences and develop confidence in a challenging, fun and inspirational environment.

At Edge Grove we offer a holistic education by encouraging the development of the whole individual, seeking to find and foster talent whether in the classroom, the art room, in music, on the stage or on the sports field. We firmly believe that all children can and will excel at something.

We encompass the traditional values of good manners and self-discipline coupled with a modern and progressive approach. We offer an education that instils self-assurance and a passion for learning that stays with children for the rest of their lives. Our first class teaching resources, strong academic approach and accessible and enjoyable teaching methods allow pupils to progress individually and reach their true potential in all spheres of school life.

At Edge Grove we are proud of our academic performance and children are prepared for a wide range of senior schools across the country, carefully chosen to suit their academic and extra-curricular strengths. Edge Grove pupils characteristically approach the next stage of the educational journey with confidence and distinction.

Edge Grove was most recently inspected under a full integrated ISI inspection in September 2015 and was awarded ‘Excellent’ across all nine inspection categories.  The report highlights how successful the school is in achieving its ambitious aims, including that of providing high standards of academic achievement through innovative teaching to ensure all pupils reach their full potential.  It also reflects the importance the school places on learning in its broadest sense and in the recruitment and development of outstanding teachers and leaders.

Working at Edge Grove offers the opportunity to be part of a vibrant and welcoming community, committed to academic and operational excellence and the highest standards of pastoral care for its pupils. The Governors  consider  the  development  of  excellence  in the  education  offered  to the pupils to be the underlying purpose of activities undertaken by all staff.
