Top London Preps

This is the top 10 London Prep Schools table, based on the percentage of leaving students that took up places at the top academic Senior Schools, as defined by their Public examination results in 2018.  Only those Prep schools that share specific information on the destinations of their leavers are included. 

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 70% of their cohort in a top Independent Secondary school.

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.
