We are dedicated

A friendly, family-orientated school at the heart of the local community

Chesham Prep is a unique place and has a well-deserved reputation, dating back to its foundation in 1938, for being a friendly, family-orientated school at the heart of the local community. Set in the Bucks countryside, it is a caring and nurturing community where the children aim high, work hard and achieve great things.


We are the Early Years

 3 to 5 years

Our Early Years Department is a happy, friendly and welcoming place. We pride ourselves on developing very close relationships with both the children and their families. The children enjoy a variety of activities together as a whole department such as the Christmas Nativity play, school trips and other celebrations. We also join the Junior School for assemblies and Harvest Festival.


We are the Juniors

5 to 8 years

The Junior School years are exceptionally important as children grow tremendously in independence, which in turn leads to greater confidence and self-esteem. They start to take more responsibility for their own learning. In the Junior School we have a balanced curriculum where the children benefit from teaching by specialist teachers for Spanish, French, ICT, PE and Music.

YEARS 1 to 4, KEY STAGE 1 & 2

We are the Seniors

9 to 13 years

We teach children to be forward thinking, adaptable and independent and they grow into confident individuals with excellent social skills, a strong moral awareness and a good understanding of core values. They will learn how to question, to think for themselves and to work successfully with others and be proud of their own and others’ success.

YEARS 5 to 8, KEY STAGES 2 & 3

It takes some skill to combine a slick private school offering with the relaxed vibe of the local village school but Chesham Prep in South Bucks has managed the near impossible.
Muddy Stilettos 2018

“Chesham Prep may not be a school with a grand stone façade, but it is a supportive and nurturing centre of excellence in which children can blossom, developing their own special interests before they are launched into secondary education. There are exceptional learning support facilities and plenty of development is in evidence: a new swimming pool opened in July to great excitement. Sport is strong; a number of pupils play in county teams for rugby, cricket and hockey. Energetic and forward-thinking Head Jonathan Beale is renowned for his approachability: four mornings a week he is at the school gates without fail, greeting pupils and chatting to parents, and twice a week he spends time reading to the younger years. Beale’s five-year plan is ambitious; he wants Chesham to be the first-choice prep in the area.” Tatler 2020
