Holy Cross Preparatory School has grown and developed over the years into the renowned school that it is today – Surrey’s best kept secret!
The school is exceptional in being the only single sex school in Kingston providing a Christian education that enables pupils to achieve high levels of success in all areas of the curriculum and where Faith is at the heart of the community.
The main house, built in 1875 and the former home of John Galsworthy, is set in over eight beautiful acres. It is listed for architectural interest, but has been sympathetically adapted over the years. We have specialist teachers and facilities for music, P.E., IT, French, Drama, D & T, Pottery and Art. The grounds include two tennis/netball courts, hockey pitch, athletics track, playground and two ponds and extensive gardens. Classrooms are light and spacious and look out over the grounds. The school has also recently finished building a fabulous new sports hall, performing arts/dining hall and kitchen filled with up-to-date facilities.
We are over subscribed and moderately selective with preference given to siblings and Catholics. Children and staff of all Faiths are welcomed into our community; we are 45% R.C. Children are happy, relaxed and enjoy a broad curriculum with a range of experiences and opportunities. Parents are supportive and active members of the PTA. At 11+ the girls do extremely well at gaining places in local selective independent and maintained senior schools.
