About Us

ILG is a growing group of independent preparatory schools and nurseries in South-East England. We take great pride in each one of them, supporting them enthusiastically in the achievement of excellence. We do this by striving to inspire each individual pupil to achieve the personal and social development and the academic result which best matches his or her personality and talents.

Two of the most important decisions parents have to make for their children are the choice of primary school and then how best to enter Secondary Education. British Independent and the best of State Education have a worldwide reputation for quality. And rightly so. While an independent Prep School is often affordable, Independent Secondary Education can be prohibitively expensive. The significant “trick” is being able to make a wise choice for Secondary Education; one that is dependent on the child’s character, academic ability and the family’s financial situation at the time.

Our class sizes; our ambition to tailor the learning process to each child’s personality; our well documented exam success; and the impressive eventual university destinations of many of our pupils, demonstrate that ILG prep school offer a powerful qualifying first step enabling that choice to be made correctly in both the children’s and the family’s best interests.

The importance of a school ‘ethos’ – its traditions, its culture and its pastoral care – can be insufficiently recognised as a key driver in turning out a well-rounded young individual ready to accept the challenge of life in our dynamic and evolving society.

We believe that the ILG ethos will indeed inspire your child to do so. Put simply, we aim:

To deliver inspired learning through the individual personal attention and understanding which nurtures a child’s talents, addresses their fears and helps them to achieve their full potential.
