Kite­brook Prepara­to­ry School

List­ed as one of the UK’s top prep schools in Tatler’s School Guide, Kite­brook is a day & flexi-board­ing School for Girls & Boys aged 3 – 13 in the Cotswolds.

Kite­brook Prepara­to­ry School pro­vides an out­stand­ing all-round edu­ca­tion where chil­dren are allowed to devel­op at their own pace in a hap­py and sup­port­ive envi­ron­ment that inspires self con­fi­dence and a sense of independence. 

In 1959 Anne McDer­mott set up Kite­brook with the aim to run a school that would not just pro­vide aca­d­e­m­ic rigour, but a place where the school would work togeth­er like a fam­i­ly, encour­ag­ing free­dom of thought, indi­vid­ual devel­op­ment and mutu­al respect and trust. We are proud to say that these core val­ues remain. 

We want all our chil­dren to feel at home here, with the free­dom to roam around the grounds in their free time. Kite­brook boys and girls make dens, climb trees and enjoy being chil­dren! High aca­d­e­m­ic stan­dards, a var­ied cur­ricu­lum, spe­cial­ist teach­ing and a won­der­ful envi­ron­ment — all in all, an Enid Bly­ton’ exis­tence with ambi­tion! We pas­sion­ate­ly believe that a child’s school days should be some of the hap­pi­est of their lives. That is why we work so hard to ensure every child looks back at their time here and says, I real­ly loved my school!”
