Home > About Us



At Reedham Park we prove that a good independent education need not cost you a fortune.  We offer a traditional, no frills, preparatory school experience at a fraction of the fees charged by other independent schools in the area.  Our curriculum is broad and fulfilling, from introducing the children to times tables in Reception to learning Shakespeare and Latin by time they leave us.  Thus our founding principle of ‘delivering an exceptional yet affordable education to local children’ remains to this day.

Our founder, Miss Inez Routledge MBE, started Reedham Park in 1932 with only twelve children.  Since then we have grown bigger but managed to retain the ‘family feel’ which we consider to be an important characteristic of our school.  The school has a rich history and I feel it is very important that the Reedham Park traditions, ethos and sense of community remain.

With our classes rarely exceeding eighteen children we can support and challenge each child.  Throughout their time with us they are encouraged to reach their full potential and are thoroughly prepared for the entrance requirements of their chosen senior schools.  I am very proud of what our children achieve and how they leave our school as confident, articulate and well-rounded young individuals.
