Griffin House Preparatory School is a co-educational, independent prep school for children aged 3–11.   For the last three years, we have featured in the top 100 prep schools in The Sunday Times Schools Guide, rated according to SATS results.  This year Griffin House was 37th and the top school in Buckinghamshire, and with no entrance examination, this makes its academic success all the more noteworthy.

Griffin House is a popular school which plans to expand in September, creating additional places for all age groups.  With CV-19 halting visits at this time, this page has been designed to give you a full visitor experience, with videos, photos and questions answered.  We hope this page will tell you everything you need to know, and look forward to hearing from you.

Life at Griffin House

We aim to make the school admissions process as straightforward and transparent as possible.  As a non-selective school there is no entrance exam but a School Report should be provided to help Griffin House ensure that we can meet your child’s needs.  The Headmaster likes to meet all prospective families to say hello and answer any questions.  At this time, with CV-19 causing restrictions, this could be accommodated via zoom or social distancing.   

If you would like to register your child for a place you will need to complete the Registration Form below and return it to the School Secretary with a small registration fee of £250.  You can attach your School Report or send it on afterwards. Once received, we will confirm whether you have secured a place on the registration list.

Places are offered on a first-come-first-served basis, with a waiting list sometimes in operation. The school will give siblings priority and will also look at gender balance.
