Garden House School






Preparatory Independent School

3 — 11


Turks Row, London SW3 4TW

Garden House School is a leading London day school offering Kindergarten, Pre-Prep and Prep schooling for girls and boys from 3 years to 11 years. We teach our boys separately from our girls, except in Kindergarten. We strongly believe girls and boys learn most effectively apart but have much to offer one another in the broader school environment. This is a structure rarely seen elsewhere in the English education system.

The Boys’ School and the Girls’ School are housed together in Turks Row, a purpose-designed and almost perfect space in central London. Chelsea is an exceptional area in which to run a school. The Royal Borough’s unique association with Art and Literature filters through the curriculum; we are inspired by the history, the architecture, the style, the greenness and busyness as well as the nearness to the River Thames.

There are few schools in Central London able to boast their own garden, delightfully situated in the historic grounds of the Royal Hospital. Moreover, we play sport in the magnificent South Grounds and green spaces of Burton Court, fringed by the impeccably Georgian St. Leonard’s Terrace to the north and Sir Christopher Wren’s and Sir John Soane’s Royal Hospital to the south. Our school plays are staged at The Royal Court Theatre, a leading national theatre in Sloane Square. All this is on our doorstep.

Girls and boys join Garden House in the September after they reach 3 or 4 years of age. Boys may also join the school at 8 years of age. An Application Form can be obtained from the School Office. Once completed and returned with a £120 application fee, your child’s name will be placed on the relevant waiting list. School Registry recommends an early completion of the Application Form. Garden House operates a sibling policy, giving priority to girls and boys who have siblings already in the school.

A year before entry, you will be contacted for a visit and an opportunity for the School to meet your child. Once the School offered your child a place, you will be asked to complete the Registration Form and confirm your interest in the place by the payment of a £2,000 Registration Fee. This sum is refunded to your child’s last term’s school fees.
