Greenfield School

Prep School of the Year

As a school like no other, we are incredibly proud of the recognition that Greenfield has achieved over the years for our outstanding educational provision. 

Rated "Excellent" by ISI

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.

Top Surrey Prep School

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 placed Greenfield amongst the top schools in the UK and, as the only shortlisted school in the county, Greenfield was proud to be recognised as one of Surrey's top Prep Schools.

Outstanding Pastoral Care... and Best Sense of Humour!

In 2022, after three years of incomprehensible change and challenge, we learned that Greenfield School had been awarded 'highly commended' in two categories by the Muddy Stilettos School Awards. This recognition was enormously gratifying, not least because of the two categories for which the school was recognised - Outstanding Pastoral Care and Best Sense of Humour! Despite the many hurdles faced between 2019 and 2022, including a full site move, huge expansion and, of course, the pandemic, Greenfield staff, children and parents were proud to be congratulated for our approach to pupil wellbeing and positive outlook. 

2022: Prep School of The Year

In April 2022, we were thrilled to learn that Greenfield had been shortlisted once again by the TES Schools Awards in the Independent Prep School of the Year category. It was at a spectacular awards ceremony in June 2022 where we learned that we had been chosen as the Independent Prep School of the Year 2022! We are incredibly proud and humbled that the work we do has been recognised in this way, and are more excited than ever for what is yet to come.

Muddy Stilettos Review: Greenfield School, Woking 

"For a school that’s non-selective, the results (particularly in the number of scholarship offered) are impressive and that’s no doubt partly due to the Masters programme... Parents like the nurturing nature of Greenfield, and the efforts that are made to discover what each child is good at and loves doing – be it music, sport, art, drama or academics."

Local schools prove ‘best in class’ at national awards. (Woking News and Mail)

"Simon Larter-Evans, one of the judges in the TES (formerly Times Educational Supplement) awards, said Greenfield “has made a particular feature of helping parents choose the future school with the interests of the child, rather than the interests of prestige”.

He added: “It’s bucking the trend of monocultural independent schools in the Surrey area and has a strong community focus.”

IAPS Highlight Series: Greenfield School. 

"When the children returned from lockdown we began our Student Champions initiative, where children and staff volunteer their time to listen to those who might be struggling. The volunteers proudly wear Student Champion badges, to let others know that they are here to listen should they have any concerns. This enables children to open up lines of communication, prevent build-up of anxiety and signpost each other to avenues of support..."

Full steam ahead for Greenfield School! (Get Surrey)

"After quickly adapting to current circumstances, the school is continuing with its expansion plans. In the summer of 2019, when Greenfield School moved in its entirety from Brooklyn Road to Old Woking Road, it was hailed as the start of the most exciting year yet and one that was sure to be full of ‘firsts’. That was certainly true, but little did it know that a pandemic was on the horizon and that much of the forthcoming school year would see its new home stood empty whilst teachers and pupils remained in lockdown..."
