Prep School of the Year
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."

"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.”
