Welcome to Glenesk School

At Glenesk Pre-Prep and Nursery School, we specialise in providing an exceptional educational foundation for children between the age of 2 and 7 years old.

We believe that childhood should be a time of wonder, exploration, and joy. That’s why we make it our mission to ensure that your child’s day is filled with special moments of Glenesk magic, every day.

Excellent Early Years provision

Our inspirational and passionate Early Years specialist teachers offer your child an outstanding start to their educational journey. They are committed to providing a stimulating, secure and inspiring environment, helping your child reach their full potential.

Prepared for the future

At Glenesk, every child receives the individual attention and support they need to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Our children are uniquely prepared for entry at Year 3 to the best selective schools, with many achieving academic or sporting scholarships.

A nurturing and caring environment

Glenesk is not just a school; it’s a home away from home, where your child will feel valued, and excited to learn. Our small class sizes help to ensure that every child’s individuality in all areas is recognised, nurtured and celebrated.

Meet our Head, Mrs Sarah Bradley

Our dedicated Head, Sarah Bradley has been a part of the Glenesk team for over seven years. Mrs Bradley’s enthusiasm for education goes beyond the classroom walls, and she strongly believes in the power of nature to inspire young minds. She is passionate about the benefits of outdoor learning, and lessons at Glenesk come to life every day in our many beautifully designed indoor and outdoor play and learning areas.

Having a keen interest in speech and language development, she understands that effective communication is at the heart of a child’s educational journey and ensures that every child at Glenesk has the opportunity to express themselves confidently and articulately.

Independent Pre-Prep of the Year

We are delighted to have been shortlisted for Independent Pre-prep of the Year 2024.

This nomination recognises our commitment to providing every child with the most perfect start in life, filled with magical memories.

The children are empowered and offered a lot of opportunities to try new things. It is a very friendly school and my child is really happy at Glenesk.

Nurturing compassion through animal care

Our vibrant community fosters care and kindness that extends to our school's chickens and guinea pigs. Beyond the classroom, pupils learn valuable lessons in compassion and teamwork by taking on the responsibility of caring for these feathered and furry friends.

This hands-on experience not only deepens their understanding of the natural world but also creates a nurturing environment where everyone thrives together.


A wholesome learning environment for your child

Located in the leafy village of East Horsley, we provide age-appropriate facilities that enhance learning for your child. Bright, spacious classrooms and interactive areas in our purpose-built nursery create a comfortable and imaginative environment. Outdoor exploration is also encouraged with dedicated learning spaces and a nature area.

We have a library that offers a wide range of books for young readers, while our main hall hosts vibrant performances. In our dedicated music room, children develop their musical talents through curricular and extra-curricular lessons. Additionally, our main building features an indoor heated swimming pool for aqua fun.

#EducationExcellence #independentschool #privateschool #surreyschools #juniorschool #seniorschool #cognitaschools
Last month one of our sister schools from @cognitaschools, our extraordinary community of diverse yet connected schools, @breasideprep, joyfully hosted our Early Years HUB. This annual event is a cherished tradition where UK Cognita Early Years educators come together to moderate and share best practices. While the HUBs were originally held twice a year, they moved online due to COVID. This year marked the triumphant return to in-person gatherings, and it was a resounding success!
Our attendees revelled in the opportunity to network face-to-face once again, fostering a true sense of community. The agenda was packed with engaging topics including Writing, ‘Wow’ Moments, GLD Data, enabling environments, and best practices, among many others. It was thrilling to be able to connect colleagues from Cognita schools further afield including those in Spain, who joined us online.
The success of this event has left us eagerly anticipating the next HUB. Stay tuned for more updates!
