Kensington Prep is an independent day school in Fulham for girls aged 4-11. It opened in 1873, the first school to be established in the Girls’ Day School Trust. The school moved to Fulham in 1997 and is set in over an acre of grounds with netball and tennis courts and some of the best facilities of any prep school in London. The school is shortlisted for the 2018 TES National Prep School of the Year.
The school is non-denominational. There are 290 girls – aged 4 to 11 years - in 2 balanced parallel classes of about 20 girls.
The school offers traditional values combined with innovative teaching and is at the forefront of IT. It has been awarded the prestigious ICT mark for the second time. All girls from Y3 upwards have personal iPads as well as access to a fully-equipped IT suite. The school has also just introduced a new digital learning platform and parent portal. Their cutting edge ‘Explore Floor’ was this year shortlisted for a national award as Education IT Project of the Year.
There is a large library at the heart of the school, state-of-the-art science lab and dedicated specialist rooms for art, design technology, music and drama.
