Pupil Destinations – Independent Secondary Schools and State Secondary Schools 

Windrush Valley Prep School Oxfordshire is an independent primary school for boys and girls aged 3-11. We successfully prepare our pupils for admission and a successful future in their first-choice independent secondary school or state secondary school. Our small class sizes, currently averaging 10 pupils per class, the quality of our teaching staff and our continuous drive for excellence has lead to a track record that we’re extremely proud of; over the last 21 years all pupils have passed their senior school entry examination and attended their first-choice secondary school.

Our prep school is ranked in the Top 50 Best Prep School in England and is ranked the Best Prep School in Oxfordshire. In addition, the school’s award for Excellence by the Independent Schools Association is further testimony to our unrivalled record.

If you want to give your child the best possible start – excellence starts here.

The school aims to teach children to grow into positive, responsible and healthy people, who can work and co-operate with others. It does so through all those planned activities that promote learning and personal growth and development. This includes the range of extra-curricular activities and “clubs” organised to enrich the experiences of the children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and are expected to behave. The school places high value on positive behaviour as a product of strong inter-personal relationships.

As the school does not have any English as a Second Language (ESL) registered pupils, all lessons are conducted in English
