Based in the Berkshire countryside, Lambrook is an independent preparatory school for boys and girls. It was founded in 1860 and occupies 52 acres of grounds, playing fields and numerous cutting-edge facilities, including a golf course, a 25-metre indoor swimming pool and a Performing Arts Centre. [1]


The Lower School curriculum is aimed at equipping pupils with distinctive academic grounding. Accordingly, it features a varied selection of subject options (such as modern and classical languages, sciences, technology and humanities) which, coupled with exceptional teaching, actively prepare children for further education.


Learning at Lambrook extends well beyond the classroom, encompassing a wealth of extras that range from farming, chess and tennis to podcast making, life saving and scuba diving. The school’s bespoke co-curricular programme, named CARPE, also boasts regular trips and expeditions, which have included Sweden, South Africa and the Isle of Wight as destinations. [2]


Pastorally, Lambrook exhibits an individualised approach, rooted in tireless efforts to secure the physical, emotional and mental well-being of each child on campus. Highly-qualified staff make sure that this approach brings about a successful outcome, one that will allow children to effectively navigate the world around them – well after they leave school. [3]
