About Milbourne Lodge School
Milbourne Lodge School is an independent, co-educational pre-prep and preparatory school for children aged 4 – 13, located in Esher, Surrey.
Milbourne Lodge was founded in 1912 by Harvey Wyatt, and in 1948 the school was bought by Norman Hale who was Headmaster for fifty-one years. During Mr Hale’s tenure, Milbourne Lodge became one of England’s leading preparatory schools, recognised for outstanding academic achievements and numerous scholarship awards to top public schools. This pursuit of academic excellence continues to thrive at the school with each year pupils achieving scholarships and CE entry to the top Independent schools in the country including Eton, Winchester, Charterhouse, Tonbridge, Westminster, St Paul’s and Kings’ College School Wimbledon to name but a few.
In 2007 Milbourne Lodge became part of the Cognita Schools group and continues to focus on the pursuit of excellence.
The Pre-Prep department which educates pupils from Reception to Year 2 was opened in 2010 and now contains over 90 children with two form entry in each year group.
In 2016, the Hale building was opened comprising 5 new classrooms and a state of the art Science Laboratory.
In June 2017, the school was inspected by SIS and was graded 'Outstanding in All Areas'. Please see the Inspection Report link below
Mrs Judy Waite - Judy joined the school as Deputy Head, Academic in 2010 and was appointed Head in January 2016.
