We are pleased to welcome Essendene Lodge Preparatory School to our family of schools and nurseries. Discussions to acquire the school have been in place with the Proprietor for around 2 years and we are looking forward to developing a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship with them.

Based in Caterham, Surrey, the family run preparatory school and nursery was founded in 1966 for roughly 184 children aged 3-11 years. The school places great value in providing a safe, happy environment for their pupils to receive an excellent education.

If you would like to visit the school, we would certainly recommend it, so that you can get a flavour for the environment and their core values. We would also like to take this opportunity to formally welcome Mrs Ali, the Headmistress, and her excellent team to the group.
