About Our School
Greenfield School is not your average preparatory school, and we are very proud of it. The school has a rich history within Woking combined with a strong ethos, established by Headmistress Ruth Hicks, and this remains at the forefront of the school’s philosophy.
At Greenfield, we welcome families into our school community, not just children, and we recognise that committing to our school is a huge financial commitment for parents. We understand that if you are considering an independent education for your children, it is because you want to give them opportunities. Our incredibly broad curriculum offers opportunities for all and enables us to identify strengths in every child.
Year-on-year, our impressive results prove the value of this holistic approach to education, and we are proud of the achievements of each of our leavers.
In 2016 a full inspection by the Independent Schools' Inspectorate (the Independent Schools' equivalent to Ofsted) rated Greenfield as "Excellent" in all eight inspection areas: Pupils' achievements and learning; Contribution of curricular and extra-curricular provision; Contribution of teaching; Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development; Pastoral care; Welfare, health and safety; Governance and Leadership and Management. In 2019, the school was inspected for regulatory compliance and passed all requirements with no recommendations.
It is all of this and more that meant Greenfield was shortlisted for the TES Pre-Prep/Prep School of the Year Award in 2019 along with just 8 other schools from all across the country. This enormous accolade places Greenfield amongst the top schools in the UK and, as the only shortlisted school in the county, Greenfield is proud to be recognised as one of Surrey's top Prep Schools.
