ILG owns and operates a growing group of independent Preparatory Schools and Nurseries in South-east England. We take great pride in each one of them. We cherish their particular identities and traditions, actively encouraging them to participate in their local communities. We support them enthusiastically from the centre in the achievement of excellence 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 is seriously expensive. The really significant “trick” is to be able to make a wise choice of Secondary School, dependant on the child’s character and academics and the family’s financial situation at that 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; show that an independent ILG prep school is a powerful qualifying first step enabling, that choice to be made correctly in the children’s and the family’s best interests, when the critical moment arrives.
The importance to a child of a school’s “ethos” – its traditions, its culture and its pastoral care – can be insufficiently recognised as the important driver which it is 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. In a sentence we put it like this:
To deliver inspired learning through the individual personal attention and understanding which nurtures a child’s talents, addresses its fears and helps it to achieve its full potential.
