“James’s academic scholarship to Dulwich College is not only due to the preparation for the examinations, but also a reflection of your belief and commitment to him.”

It is a testimony to our approach and commitment to involve parents at each stage of their child’s education that Parkgate House pupils typically go on to succeed at some of the country’s premier independent schools.
Creating well-rounded, highly capable individuals, our Preparatory environment encourages all pupils to flourish, enjoy school and have lots of fun along the way.
Promoting self-confidence and independence in a happy, stimulating environment, our curriculum includes mathematics, English, science, humanities, French, Latin, various sporting activities, ballet, karate, horse riding and swimming.
To keep learning fresh and engaging, a different curriculum focus is embarked upon every year.
To help each child secure a place at the senior school most suited to his or her skills, we provide a full programme of support activities in preparation for entrance examinations.
