About

Welcome to Henriette Le Forestier Preparatory School. We are an independent preparatory school for boys and girls aged 2-11.

Our main aim is to provide an aspirational teaching and learning experience where pupils understand how to make progress in an atmosphere of challenge and fun whatever their ability.

Henriette Le Forestier Preparatory School offers your child a…

  • A fun, secure and creative learning environment
  • Staff who inspire them to have the highest expectations of themselves
  • The opportunity to become active members of a caring and supportive learning community
  • Clear rules, where good behaviour is rewarded.

We reflect Christian values but are open to and respect all faiths. Described as a village school in an urban location, our small class sizes of twenty two allow pupils to receive a tailored education. Our large grounds give access to a great range of sports and outdoor learning. As a preparatory school, our role is to engage and develop children to ensure they are fully prepared for their progression onto a selection of state, grammar and secondary schools. What sets Henriette Le Forestier apart from other schools is our school ethos, history, grounds, outstanding results and increasing scholarship achievements of our pupils. In a parent’s words, “I just wanted to thank you and your wonderful school for everything you have done. He has loved every moment of his time at Henriette Le Forestier and he is truly sad to leave, just as we all are.”

At Henriette Le Forestier Preparatory School we believe that everyone, both children and adults, should work hard but enjoy the journey too and all the staff and children are proud to be behind this philosophy.
