Why Choose Glenesk School?

Your choice of school allows your child to achieve their personal best and sets them up for future success.

Independent School in Surrey

The early years in your child’s school journey are critical to their future. At Glenesk, we pride ourselves on offering our pupils the very best start in life. As specialists in the 2-7 year old age group, we are able to offer an all-round education of the highest quality that challenges and engages our children. Recognising and celebrating each child so they become happy, confident and independent individuals is central to our ethos and this is underpinned by our strong community and family values.

There are a number of compelling reasons to choose Glenesk for your child. Here are just a few:

Specialists in teaching 2-7 year olds

We are specialists in educating this age group. We have highly qualified, experienced staff and small class sizes to make the most of every learning opportunity. Children are encouraged to develop a respect for others, combined with a sense of confident independence and a joy for learning.

Broad reading and literature-based education

Our school has a culture of providing a broad reading and literature-based education, giving our pupils opportunities to get involved in a range of activities, without losing focus on fulfilling the academic potential of each child. Learning is enhanced and enriched with an exciting and creative curriculum, alongside visits, visitors and extra-curricular activities.


Our culture of respect and community means we are a successful, thriving and happy school. We were recently judged outstanding in every area during a recent SIS inspection. Our children were noted as “confident learners with impeccable manners”.


All resources and facilities within the school are designed for the 2-7 year old age group. They include a heated indoor pool, exciting outdoor learning areas, spacious auditorium and music room – a unique setting for our children to flourish. Our pupils can play water-polo, get involved with our Forest Club and can even look after our school chickens and collect their eggs!

Flexible wraparound care

We understand family life is very busy, which is why we have excellent and flexible wraparound care from 7.45am to 6pm daily, with a qualified play worker. Our Nursery is now open 48 weeks per year and we hold a number of holiday clubs.

Excellent reputation

We have an excellent reputation for preparing children for entry into a huge number of the best selective schools in the local area and beyond. This is well noted by the Heads of our Feeder schools and we are uniquely placed to advise you on the best destinations for your child, based on their academic ability, strengths and character.





Comments from our parent survey, May 2017

The thing I love most is how all of the staff know every single child, and not just by name.

The fact that my children can barely sleep for excitement the night before going back to school following the holidays speaks volumes too!
