Lambrook is a thriving Prep School for around 600 boys and girls aged between 3 and 13, situated in 52 acres of beautiful Berkshire countryside. The School offers an enriching and exciting experience for each child, equipping and inspiring them ready for the next stage of their educational journey and indeed, life beyond. 

The School comprises of a Pre Prep for children in the early Years Foundation Stage and Years 1 and 2, and a Prep for children in Years 3 to 8. 

Lambrook offers weekly and flexi-boarding for boys and girls from age 7 to 13. There is a thriving boarding community where pupils can board anything from five nights a week to one night every so often. Boarding is seen as a happy extension of Lambrook School life with 75% of the Prep School taking advantage of boarding in some way. With 95% of pupils going on to board at their future school, Lambrook offers a great opportunity to prepare pupils for this.


Lambrook has been rated ‘excellent’ in every area following the most recent ISI Inspection; which included the quality of teaching, pupils’ achievements, opportunities in sport, music, performing arts and extra- curricular activities, as well as boarding provision and pastoral care. 

Lambrook has an outstanding track record in preparing its pupils to go onto the leading Senior Schools in the country. We are proud of our 100% pass rate for Common Entrance and a very generous spread of scholarships across all curricular areas.


The School is a forward-thinking yet traditional school, with a strong Christian and family ethos. Founded in 1860, the School has a rich history of success and is proud of its reputation as one of the leading Prep Schools in the country. 

Lambrook is fortunate to have some of the best facilities in the independent sector at preparatory level; a 25 metre swimming pool, Astroturf, hard courts, a Diamond Jubilee Performing Arts Studio, dance studio, sports hall, nine hole golf course and its own orchard and farm. 2019 saw the completion of our Queen’s Building; a £6 million new development offering pupils a remarkable environment for academic learning, art, design and technology and the performing arts, supported by the most outstanding teachers and support staff.


Lambrook is proud of the quality of the educational experience provided for all pupils. 

“We say that we give our pupils ‘the feathers to fly’. Along with the academic, we believe in the importance of other ‘feathers’ too, including a healthy ‘plumage’ of sport, music, drama, the creative arts, leadership programmes, expeditions with a purpose, charitable events that make a difference and so much more. Such feathers are essential in equipping children with skills such as inner confidence, learning to work in a team and valuing others, handling success as well as disappointment, building resilience, stepping out of their comfort zones, thinking outside the box, and in so doing creating ‘whole’ individuals who can influence society for the good. We know that with these feathers, our pupils will go on to take flight when they leave us and to soar into the next stage of their academic journey and indeed, their lives beyond.”

Jonathan Perry, Headmaster

Thanks to the generosity of its supporters, Lambrook has been able to offer so much more to pupils at the School. Since its founding as a school in 1860, Lambrook’s campus has matured considerably, combining its historic architecture with an ever-growing list of state-of-the-art facilities. Such improvements have had a transformational effect upon the Lambrook community and Lambrook has been able to offer exceptional educational opportunities to all of its pupils.

As well as embarking on some exciting new building projects, the school has also been able to provide an increasing number of bursaries to those who would truly benefit.
