Welcome to Donhead Preparatory School
Donhead Preparatory School is a thriving independent Jesuit preparatory school for boys aged 4-11 years. Applications from other Christian denominations, other faiths and those of no faith are welcomed. Children are prepared thoroughly for selective state and independent schools, as well as maintaining a regular number of pupils transferring to Wimbledon College, a non-selective Jesuit secondary school.
There are 340 pupils on roll. The school roll has doubled in the last 8 years and, during that time, the school has benefited from a £4.5m investment in additional and improved facilities. Furthermore, a new £3.2m development began in March 2015. This will be completed in July 2016 and will deliver the benefit of a Chapel, a 150 seat Theatre for music and drama and a two storey Art & Design Centre. Read More »

16/09/16 - Pick Up Arrangements After Games
Message from Mr Anglim
In order to ease the congestion of traffic both on Edge Hill and within the school building, we ask that, in all instances possible, the boys are collected from the Donhead Sports Ground on their Games afternoon.
The Donhead mini buses will return to school preferably with boys who are attending after school clubs, homework class or those boys with siblings who are also being collected at school. When there is a fixture or these times change, this will be communicated on the team sheets via email. Read More »

Message from the Headmaster
In order to make the most of our new facilities, we would like to move the date of the Senior School Information Evening from Thursday 22nd September to Thursday 6th October. This will enable us to use the new Auditorium and give our invited speakers from senior schools the bonus of high quality presentation facilities for their talks. The evening will begin at 7.00pm. Further details will be sent in due course. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
