Information about the school

Lorenden Prep School is a small school of approximately 120 pupils, ages 3-11, with an excellent local reputation; most pupils come to the school from recommendations from other parents or staff. It is a friendly, family environment with one form entry and with high expectations of pupils of all ages. This year Lorenden celebrates our 30th anniversary. Lorenden was awarded the highest grades of ‘Excellent’ in all categories in its most recent Educational Quality Inspection by ISI. The Head is a member of IAPS and Lorenden is within the Methodist Independent Schools Trust.

Lorenden has flourished because staff have given generously and willingly of their time and energy to aid the academic and personal development of the pupils in the many forms that this may take.

We develop self-disciplined, thoughtful children with a cheerful ‘can-do’ attitude to life and a strong sense of fair play. We thoroughly prepare our children socially, physically and intellectually for secondary education so that they can take with them happy memories of their time with us.
