The family environment at Seaton House is created by the way everyone works together with one single aim; to support our children and help them to become the very best version of themselves!

Seaton House is an incredibly special place.  The family environment we have here is created by the way everyone works together with one single aim; to support our children and help them to become the very best version of themselves!  Recently awarded the Wellbeing Award for Schools, our assessor reported “this is genuinely a community where everyone knows everyone else, cares about their wellbeing and notices when people need support and are willing to offer it”.

Courtesy and kindness are expected as the norm and our exceptional team of staff encourage our girls to develop initiative, independence, resilience and confidence.

For the last three years, Seaton House has been ranked 2nd in the Sunday Times Top 100 Prep School in England and it is no coincidence that our girls leave us to attend the very best schools in the area, with many achieving grammar school places and multiple scholarships in academic, sporting and music at leading independent high schools!  Most girls receive multiple offers to choose from, with the staff and Headteacher at Seaton House always available to help support and guide parents and children with these important decisions.

“Seaton House has been a lovely experience for my daughter, she has developed into a happy confident child due to such a warm and caring environment.” Mrs Patel July 2022

Girls can join us in from Nursery (in the term in which they turn 3) where the 15 hours Early Years funding is accepted*.  Fees are very competitive as reported by £/Schoolsmith Score, who stated that we “offer the best value for money” of Prep schools in Sutton.  Fees can be paid termly or the annual cost can be spread over 10 months.

Specialist teachers provide creative and innovative teaching to students across the school and outstanding academic results are achieved year-on-year. Our most recent ISI inspection found us ‘Excellent’ across all areas.

Our pupil demographic reflects a broad spectrum of society and being a small school with just 20 girls per class, means that our staff will get to know every child individually, learning their strengths and challenges to ensure every child thrives in all areas of school life. All classes from Year 1 have their own set of laptops and the school subscribes to a wide variety of educational learning platforms.

Music and sport play a major part in school life. For music we have two music teachers on staff and our visiting peripatetic teachers offer tuition in flute, piano and guitar.  In PE, the girls play a huge variety of sports including hockey, lacrosse, tennis, football, cricket, tag-rugby, netball and athletics.  The sports teams regularly have fixtures against local schools both home and away and in subjects such as music, sport and art, the girls take part in national ISA (Independent School Association) competitions.

Wraparound care operates from 7.30am – 6pm and an in-house, pay-as-you-go holiday club, runs in the major holidays.  A wide-ranging choice of extra-curricular clubs are offered on a daily basis including fencing, gymnastics, ballet, drama, singing, chess, science, coding etc.

To best understand what a friendly, caring and vibrant school we are, come and meet us and let our pupils tell you themselves what makes us so special.  We look forward to welcoming you soon….
