Greenfield School

Our School

Greenfield is a co-educational preparatory school for boys and girls aged rising 3 to 11, situated close to the centre of Woking.

The school occupies the former home of Miss Ruth Hicks, who was the founding Headmistress and owner of the school until 1982. Prior to that, the school occupied another site, also owned by Miss Hicks, known as Denham House in Constitution Hill, Woking. In 1935 the name was changed from Denham House to Greenfield School.

A lot has changed at Greenfield since Miss Hick's time, but the school retains the same family-friendly atmosphere and strong ethos. The school is unique in its position as a non-selective school that competes amongst the best academically selective Prep Schools in the area, in terms of entrance exam results and the awarding of scholarships from top independent senior schools.

In recent years, the school has benefited from a new timetable with a very broad curriculum and revised homework schedule. This education enables children to develop creativity and independent thought. Investment in the school’s sport and P.E. department means that pupils take advantage of facilities off-site, including a cricket ground, swimming pools, athletics track and multiple 3G pitches.

Whether your child joins us in the Pre-Prep department, the Upper School or at some point in between, they will take advantage of this close-knit community of pupils, parents and staff, which in turn will allow them to achieve and succeed.

A recent inspection by the Independent Schools' Inspectorate (the Independent Schools' equivalent to Ofsted) Greenfield was rated 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.
