Introduction

 

Ewell Castle School is a co-ed, independent day school in Ewell, Epsom, Surrey. Founded in 1926, it now features rugby, tennis and cricket pitches, athletics facilities and a multi-purpose Sports Hall complex. [1]

 

Ewell Castle Prep closely follows the National Curriculum while simultaneously being very flexible about offering an education that meets the children’s individual needs and interests. In conjunction with this, Prep School pupils often take advantage of the Senior School facilities, including a cutting-edge science laboratory and spacious DT & ICT suites.

 

Co-curricularly, the school offers a broad programme of activities, through which children maximise their abilities and diversify their talents, particularly in the areas of chess, choir, cooking, drama, rugby and football. 

 

Benefitting from an inspiring setting which occupies beautiful large gardens and woods, pupils regularly take part in Forest School lessons, which enable them to adapt to changing situations and grow in a sense of personal responsibility. Activities include den building, cooking on campfires, team games, outdoor maths investigations and open-air science experiments. [2]

 

According to Ewell Castle Prep’s most recent ISI report, it is a place where differences are celebrated and children progress towards their Senior Years with high levels of attainment. Grounded in self-confidence, resilience and a commitment to improve, children enjoy working both as individuals and as members of a team, approaching the next stages of their lives with a strong feeling of readiness.
