‘A litmus test of a school community’s profile must always be the car park,’ observes one parent. At Chesham, it’s reported that there is a healthy mix of vehicles to be found – with only 10 per cent deemed ‘flash’. At the helm of this wholesome, family-orientated prep is ‘superstar’ head Jonathan Beale, who’s been at Chesham for 20 years. Tickets to the summer festival – think camping in the school’s fields and a silent disco – sell out almost as quickly as Glastonbury. In 2022, 89 per cent of pupils passed the 11+ and moved on to local grammar schools; every year several leavers win sports scholarships. On the horizon is a revamp of the performing arts facilities and the introduction of LAMDA.
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.
