We are extremely fortunate to enjoy wonderful facilities and that precious commodity, so often lacking in London schools: space in which children can play and interact. However, space is just space and far more important are those quality interactions between the children themselves and between the children and their teachers. It is this interaction which makes the community. In our schools the relationships are important, fostered and promoted; they make our community a warm, and caring place. Our staff are dedicated professionals who commit wholeheartedly to the children’s pastoral and academic development in equal measure.
Do come and see us.
At the Fulham Prep schools, like every school that conscientiously discharges its duties, we strive to find and promote the best in each child, whether that is through academic achievement, sporting prowess, artistic endeavours or through social skills. However, we also aim to guide the children to an understanding of how to apply their own talents and employ the abilities of those around them to the greater common good. Responsibility, teamwork and empathy are important themes in the school (the children recognise them as commitment, courtesy and consideration). Many of our charges will find themselves in a position of leadership in their eventual vocations. The seeds of responsible leadership can be sown in these young years.
HISTORY AND OVERVIEW

HISTORY AND OVERVIEW
The Fulham Prep Schools are co-educational and provide continuous education for children between the ages of 4+ and 18. There are three schools: Fulham Pre-Prep, Fulham Prep and Fulham Senior. There is no expectation for a child to transfer from the Prep School to the Senior School, the majority of children will leave at 11+ or 13+ and go to London Day Schools or National Boarding Schools. Originally founded in September 1996, by the former Head, Mrs Jane Emmett, Fulham Prep Schools were family run until they joined the global Inspired Group of schools in 2015.
The challenging academic programme at Fulham Prep is broadly based on National Curriculum guidelines but is extended to meet the more rigorous requirements of the 11+ and 13+ entrance examinations. The Senior School academic curriculum focuses on the GCSE and A Level syllabuses. All three schools have a healthy co-curricular and enrichment programme. No class has more than 20 children, ensuring maximum individual attention and allowing a degree of dynamics in the classrooms. Our enthusiastic, graduate teachers create a challenging, happy and disciplined environment within which every child can achieve their full potential.
Transfer from the Pre-Prep School to the Prep School and then on to the Senior School is usually automatic and our children are not expected to sit an entry exam for internal transfers. However, it should be noted that we do not prepare children for 7+ or 8+ entry exams.
Education is about developing children's curiosity, confidence and security, encouraging them to learn, to try and to believe that they can achieve. The Fulham Prep Schools enable children to maximise their individual interests and abilities.
The children in our schools today will become the adults of tomorrow’s society. This is at the foremost of our consciousness in the Fulham Prep family of schools. The children need to be prepared for the competitive nature of the workplace and the leadership positions that they may occupy within it. This preparation involves fostering many traits: confidence, tolerance, empathy, involvement, resilience, responsibility and a positive approach.
The list is by no means exhaustive and it is supported by the philosophy of the wider Inspired Group: lateral thinking, comprehension and innovative application of skills and concepts. In school these aims manifest themselves to the children as commitment, consideration and courtesy (the Three Cs). At the Fulham Prep Schools the child is at the heart of our thinking; preparing them to be successful, individuals who will make a positive contribution to the world in which they will live.
A broad intake means that from an early age children learn to work in teams that have a variety and depth of skill sets; children are encouraged to make their contributions where their strengths lie and to recognise the abilities and contributions of others. In this way a synergy is reached and the wider world can benefit. Children must learn to work hard in order to meet the demands of modern life, but also to balance their endeavours so that time is taken for play, enjoyment and personal fulfilment.
