Homefield is a top preparatory school in Surrey for 350 boys aged between three and thirteen. Founded in 1870, Homefield has its roots in the 19th century and its branches in the twenty-first. Throughout the School's development it has been very careful to preserve the original family ethos and intimacy, together with its reputation for academic excellence, breadth of extra-curricular sporting, musical and artistic provision and the first class provision of pastoral care.
We are housed in an extensive purpose-built complex, with well-equipped science laboratories, large Art, DT and Music suites, complemented by a spacious Early Years Department and a two-acre adjoining playing field. Homefield prepares its boys for a very wide range of senior schools in London and the South East, including Dulwich College, Epsom College, Eton, Hampton, Harrow, King's College School, Wimbledon, Kingston Grammar, St Paul's, St John's, Trinity, Westminster and Whitgift.
At Homefield we aim to provide
* High standards of learning for all
* High standards of teaching for all
* High expectations in a caring atmosphere
* The fulfilment of each individual's potential
* A thorough preparation for each boy's next school
* A secure foundation for each boy's future life.
Above all, we try to achieve them in a climate of expectation but not pressure!
The ISI inspection of the school in March 2013 endorsed these aims, noting that "Pupils make a strong contribution to their learning through their highly motivated and enthusiastic attitudes... The quality of pupils' achievements and learning is excellent." (ISI Inspection, March 2013). Homefield's strong pastoral care is delivered by form teachers right from the Early Years Department through to the Senior Department.
Our boys move on to some of the best senior schools in the country. We have had 100% pass rate at Common Entrance for more than ten years and 75 scholarships have been won to senior independent schools for academic, musical, sporting, artistic and all round accomplishment in the past three years.
The formal curriculum is complemented by a very rich variety of lunch-time and after-school clubs including numerous academic, sporting, artistic and musical groups and orchestras. The boys' learning is also complemented by the enrichment and benefit of frequent regional, national and overseas visits and trips.
The school runs breakfast, after school and holiday clubs as well as a minibus service to and from the Wimbledon area and Purley/Carshalton.
Homefield is also rightly proud of its many county and national representatives in table tennis, squash, athletics, swimming, judo, karate, soccer, rugby, cricket and chess.
Parent links are also very important at Homefield. The Homefield Association is very active and organises many charitable functions throughout the year, additionally raising funds for the school.
Homefield Preparatory School offers academic, art, music and sports scholarships.
