Headteacher reading to students

Head’s Welcome

A very warm welcome to Chesham Preparatory School.

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.

We are dedicated to delivering an outstanding education for all our pupils; through small class sizes, the passionate and dedicated staff and, of course, the specialist facilities which children have access to from a young age. There are shared expectations for striving towards academic excellence and pupils go on to record highly impressive results in tests and exams for entry into Senior Schools; both competitive Bucks Grammar Schools and a wide variety of excellent Senior Independent Schools.

As well as being highly successful in preparing the children academically for the next stage of their educational journey, our mission is to know each pupil as an individual and identify, develop and nurture their varied talents and strengths. There is a wealth of opportunities for these talents to flourish in the classroom, on the sports field and through involvement in the creative arts. The children work hard and achieve great things.

I hope that you enjoy browsing through our website, but do not leave it at that. Please come and visit us to experience what we have to offer first hand. We promise that you will receive a very warm welcome and find an immensely busy and vibrant school where the happiness and progress of every child is an absolute priority.
