ABOUT Glenesk School, East Horsley, UK
Glenesk is an independent pre-preparatory school for children aged 2-7 years in East Horsley, Surrey.
We have a strong record of academic success, with a curriculum covering both the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and the addition of a full Creative Arts programme.
Our qualified and experienced nursery staff ensure that our youngest children are gently introduced to school life with Dance, Music and Drama included in their weekly timetable.
Once in full-time school, students benefit from a full Sports programme including football, netball, gymnastics and swimming in the indoor heated pool.
All core subjects are taught to a high standard and the oldest Year 2 children are prepared for their entrance tests for their future schools at the end of Key Stage 1.
“Glenesk School provides a broad and well-rounded education of outstanding quality, which nurtures each individual child, fully in keeping with its ethos and aims. It provides excellent transitions between Nursery and Kindergarten and between Reception and Year 1. The curriculum is diverse and extremely well planned and organised to enable children of all abilities to achieve high standards, especially in literacy and numeracy. It prepares children very well for success in their applications for entry to their next schools. The teaching, the personal development and the care provided are united in the creation of the exciting and secure nurturing environment at which the school aims, and all three are of the highest quality.”
Glenesk has a longstanding reputation as one of the best Pre-Preparatory schools for preparing children for entry to the top Prep schools in the local area and beyond.
Our strong academic record and excellent pastoral care gives our pupils a noticeable confidence as they move on to their future schools, which is well recognised by the Heads of our feeder schools, including Downsend, Cranmore, Cranleigh Prep, Danes Hill, Lanesborough and Tormead.
