Woodcote House, Surrey | Boys’ boarding prep school near London
The school strongly believe that boys should still be allowed to be boys and the grounds play a huge part in promoting this ethos.
Camping, a pizza oven in the woods, low ropes course and cooking chips on camp fires on a Sunday are some of the activities on offer. Sport is played every day.
The hundred boys benefit from small class sizes, which ensures academic success and a steady stream of scholarships.
Woodcote House School is justifiably proud of its 100% pass rate at Common Entrance to the top public schools and its bespoke advice service regarding prospective senior schools for your son.
London based families, those from outside the capital and those based overseas choose Woodcote because they want a modern, seven day a week boarding prep school with traditional values to prepare their sons for public school.
An innovative and modern approach to solving the boarding conundrum faced by families means the school has become increasingly popular despite recent economic trends.
A forty five minute daily bus service to London allows boys to experience the benefits of a country prep school as well as helping to solve the transport issues faced by parents in the capital.
Boarding at Woodcote is great fun for the boys as they learn to live in a community whilst also fostering confidence and responsibility.
All academic work is done at school (so no homework hassles at home!) and every third weekend is an Exeat that starts at noon on Friday and finishes on Monday evening.
All parents are welcome on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons to watch matches and experience the legendary ‘match tea’ , whilst many also come to the school’s delightful Chapel in the woods on Saturday or Sunday mornings.
