About Our School


Athelstan House School is a non-selective, independent pre-preparatory school for boys and girls aged 3-7 years for Richmond Upon Thames and the surrounding area.


For our families and teachers alike, Athelstan House School is a truly special place. That is because it combines the best of both worlds.

There is the closeness and friendliness of a small and nurturing school and we are a school that is big on heart, big on ambition and big on opportunity.


Our size enables pupils to enjoy the freedom of their childhood within a safe and caring environment, while small classes allow all children the chance to discover and develop their talents, whilst receiving maximum individual attention.


Every child matters – wherever their talents, interests and ambitions lie and this is reflected in the ease in which each child enters the next stage of their education.

Head & SENCo

What Ofsted says:

‘Pupils attain a high standard in reading, spelling and mathematics. They are well prepared for the next stage of their education.’


‘A strong emphasis is placed on pastoral care and the school helps pupils to develop into confident, articulate young people.’


‘The care shown by staff to pupils is of the highest order and results in pupils developing self-esteem and gaining a balanced awareness of the world around them.’
