79 Eccleston Square SW1V 1PP

Eaton Square School is an independent, coeducational Nursery, Pre-Preparatory and Preparatory school in the heart of central London, educating children from the age of 2 ½ to 13 years of age. Offering continuity of education in the important formative years of a child’s life, the school is a vibrant, popular community where children learn not only the skills, but also the values that will prepare them for the next stage of their life at senior school and beyond.

Eaton Square School offers a breadth and depth of education, which goes beyond academic success in examinations and into every sphere of life. Equal emphasis is placed on intellectual, artistic, aesthetic, physical and musical pursuits. In addition, we want children to learn moral and spiritual values that will make them happy and confident in themselves, without arrogance.

Registration can take place at any stage prior to the assessment procedures taking place at the age of three years, the year prior to entry. Entrance to Eaton Square School at the age of four is via a formal assessment. This is carried out by the Head of Pre-Prep in association with the Head of Nurseries. In the case of candidates from external nurseries, children are invited to attend an assessment morning on a Saturday in November, where they complete a range of activities including phonic and numeracy work; colouring, cutting and informal discussion in small groups . The assessment provides the school with information on their developmental level and their social development.

For pupils attempting 8+ entry, papers are based on age appropriate topics from the National Curriculum Key Stage 2. English, Mathematics and Reasoning papers are broken up by group activities. For pupils attempting 11+ entry, the English and Mathematics paper are based on the format of the 11+ Common Entrance papers. There is a practical Science lesson during which the pupils are expected to carry out a short experiment in small groups. Verbal Reasoning and Non Verbal Reasoning papers are set and candidates are asked to read aloud. There is an interview with the Headmaster during which time candidates are invited to talk about themselves. The expectation is that pupils entering the school at this point, would be at an age appropriate National Curriculum level.
