Top Academic London Preps

This is the top Academic London Prep Schools table, based on the percentage of pupils that took up places in the highest performing independent senior schools*  in 2021. 

Please be aware that only those schools that share specific information on the destinations of their leavers are included. There are many other consistently high performing schools in London but their leavers' destinations are not published in a manner which allows us to include them here. 

The schools on the list are ranked in order of the highest percentage of leavers moving  on to top performing senior schools. Each of these schools successfully placed over 60% of their cohort into a top independent senior school.

* as per the league tables published on best-schools.co.uk

We recognise that a  table such as this is not of course the only, nor indeed  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.
