Homefield Prep School

Sutton  |  320 day boys  | 4-13 years

Homefield Prep school is an independent day school for boys aged 4 to 13 in Sutton. As one of the oldest Prep schools in England, Homefield Prep has been renowned for its academic success and family atmosphere for over 150 years, since 1870.

A safe and happy environment, with a real depth of specialist teaching ensures the fulfilment of our boys’ individual potential. We offer a truly cosmopolitan school, our rich diversity a real strength. A generous education should be aimed at knowledge and skill, but also at building good character.

Recently, the Covid-19 crisis saw our community strengthen. Our response was emphatic. No boy was going to be left behind. We provided Key Worker provision and a depth and range of online and live learning to raise the bar in both academics and wellbeing. Externally validated assessment showed our boys still significantly ahead of national standards.

Every year our boys receive a phenomenal number of grammar school offers. At Homefield we produce well-rounded boys who go on to some of the very best senior schools in the country. These expectations are not around undue pressure to pass exams. We encourage an enlightened individual who “can do all things if he will”. Creative, inquisitive and inventive.

As a charitable trust since the 1960s, a keen sense of civic and community responsibility is important to us. From an early age, our boys learn what good citizenship looks like. We believe that positive values influence character and attitude. In the 21st century it’s more important than ever for our boys to feel rooted within a strong moral community and to benefit from being part of a bigger picture. They will make loyal friends here who, we hope, will stay by their side for life.
