Welcome to Broomfield House School

Curious Learners | Independent Thinkers | Happy Children

 

Located in leafy Kew Village, Broomfield House School is a magical place to learn and explore for ages 3-11. As Kew’s oldest independent school, we have been educating and inspiring girls and boys since 1876. At Broomfield we are a family, a home away from home for our children. Academically ambitious, we offer highly differentiated lessons and know every child exceptionally well. We foster a love of learning, kindness and curiosity which are the foundations of a successful and happy prep school experience.

Music

We aim to instil a love of music which will last the children a lifetime, and it is at the very centre of school life. There is strong tradition of singing throughout the school, with a excellent Chamber Choir. Children are encouraged to start learning an instrument from Year 1 upwards with opportunities to participate in performances throughout the school year and in Orchestra. Our school is known for its musical quality and in this we are supported by a wonderful team of peripatetic instrumental teachers.

Sport

We believe that sport should be fun, progressive and encourage a real life long love of both individual pursuits and team based games. Competition, team work, leadership and an all important competitive edge are all encouraged through a broad and balanced sports offering. We believe sport should be inclusive and give all children a chance to perform at their very best while receiving the very highest of sports coaching and encouragement.

Art

The art room is a very different space to that of other classrooms. Paints, canvases, sketch books and aprons fill the benches where our pupils work freely in expressing their ideas and thoughts in a creative way. Individuality is encouraged, as is self-expression, with all pupils given the tools and expertise to complete a range of wonderful projects.

Drama

The whole world is a stage, and all the men and women merely actors. They have their exits and their entrances, and in a lifetime we will play many parts, our life separated into several acts. Treading the boards, creating a character, growing in confidence, gaining self-esteem and demonstrating theatrical wonder are all part of our drama curriculum. Our regular school productions give all the chance to take part with pupils playing essential parts on the stage, back stage or part of the school's in house technical team.

We have received the brilliant news that we we are now members of The Independent Association of Prep Schools (@iapsuk)!
