Outstanding Independent School in Kent

You may be asking yourself, ‘Which are the best private schools near me?, or ‘Are there any excellent independent schools near me?’. If that’s the case, then you will find the answers to those questions (and many more) here.

Welcome to St David’s Prep in Kent

e have a strong academic record and a long history of success in many areas. However, school life at St David’s Prep offers so much more than results and grades. We aim to develop confident, happy children and instil in each one of them a life-long love of learning and an enquiring mind.

We would love you to come and visit and get a sense of the range and breadth of opportunities St David’s Prep can offer your children.

Why choose an independent school?

With a broad and exciting curriculum, and supported and encouraged by excellent specialist teachers, our children steadily build knowledge and understanding, key skills and a robust work ethic year on year. When the time comes, they are able to take senior school entrance exams comfortably in their stride, without the pressures of intensive preparation.

Set in the heart of residential West Wickham, St David’s best-kept secret is its extensive grounds.

Behind the school, and hidden from the road, lie six acres of grounds and playing fields, a green oasis ringed with beautiful mature trees, in which flocks of escaped parakeets have made their home.

Next steps

Choosing a school for your child is an important decision. We want you to get to know our school and see for yourself that it is a place where your child will thrive and be happy.

As a first step, we strongly recommend you visit us to get a true feel for the character and ethos of the school. We hold three Open Days each year, but you are also welcome to make an appointment at another time to suit you, and we would encourage you to see the school on a normal working day.
