About Us

Welcome to Radnor House Prep School

We are very excited to announce the opening of Radnor House Prep School – a new co-educational prep school in the historic Popes Villa – a wonderful riverfront setting in Twickenham.

The school will open in September 2023 to pupils aged 2 ½ -11 years old. We will offer a broad and exciting curriculum that will instil a lifelong love of learning in young minds with a focus on fostering the individual abilities of each pupil and providing a strong foundation for them to develop the character, resilience and life skills to succeed in the modern world.

With spacious premises and exceptional facilities, Radnor Prep will be the best equipped preparatory school in south-west London. It will offer a wealth of fantastic academic and co-curricular opportunities with a focus on STEAM skills in dedicated, cutting-edge specialist spaces and a modern learning resource centre. And with a large gym, theatre space, music practice rooms and performance spaces there will be plenty of opportunity for pupils to fuel their creativity. There will be a full range of sports, including soccer, rugby, athletics and cricket using the splendid facilities at St Marys University.

“The very best results come from a broad base, an interesting and challenging curriculum, and a strong and supportive network of parents, pupils and school.” Stephanie Piper, Head

Our outstanding provision will ensure either direct, non-examined entry to one of the excellent local Dukes senior schools, Kneller Hall or Hampton Court House, or provide excellent preparation for competitive 11+ examinations to other senior schools.

We will maintain the ethos of the current senior school; the firm belief that all pupils are capable of great things if effectively taught, motivated and inspired by their school environment. It will deliver an education based on encouragement rather than pressure which is central to the school’s ethos that the very best results come from a broad base, an interesting and challenging curriculum, and a strong and supportive network of parents, pupils and school.

Radnor House Senior will move to Kneller Hall in September 2023

The school will combine the best of traditional, personalised, teaching skills with a forward-thinking, creative curriculum that will use innovative, modern technology to inspire a love of learning in young minds. There will be an emphasis on STEM learning with specialist teaching areas and resources and a focus on future skills to prepare young pupils for an ever-changing world.

Wellbeing and pastoral care will be paramount, with the knowledge that building resilience in children, teaching them to confidently take risks and learn from their mistakes, are an integral part of a modern education. At Radnor Prep, each child will have a sense of belonging and security in a community where the welfare of each child is at the very heart of the school.

We invite you to visit us at one of our upcoming open days  at the school, or contact our Admissions team to enquire about a place.
