Top Boarding Preps

Which are the best boarding prep schools?

Parents hoping to gain a place for their child in a top senior boarding school would be well advised to consider sending their child to an elite prep boarding school, which has an excellent track record of  successful senior boarding school admissions. For this purpose it generally pays to choose a discrete prep school rather than an 'all through', because the latter specialise in preparing children for entry to their own senior schools. 

Our table of Top Prep Boarding Schools table is based on the percentage of pupils taking up places at top secondary schools. The data used to rank these secondary schools is their performance in Public examinations 2018.

Please see below for a list of the top boarding prep schools for 2018. These are schools where at least 50% of children have won places at the most competitive senior schools in the UK. In some cases the numbers of children winning places at schools such as Wycombe Abbey, Eton and Wellington are much higher. Some, but by no means all, of the schools listed below are academically selective.

We recognise that a table such as this is not of course the only, nor indeed necessarily the most important indication of a ‘top school’. Equally important is that a prep school prepares each child for the next stage of their educational journey and ensures that they secure a place in the most suitable school. Prep schools which are non-selective on entry and which send children to a wide range of senior schools will be suitable for most children.
