Welcome to Milbourne
Lodge School

Located in stunning grounds near to Esher, we provide a private Pre-Prep and Prep school education for children aged between 4 and 13 years. At Milbourne Lodge we value every child, and create lasting memories, and our personalised focus and inspirational teaching is reflected in our outstanding academic results. We are united in a passion to maximise the potential and development of each child.

Nurturing Excellence

Our aim is to develop every child so that they can reach their full potential.

We know that there is far more to education than academic achievement and the school provides an environment where all talents can be nurtured and celebrated. We are proud of our long history of success at securing Scholarship and Senior entry to the top Day and Boarding schools in the country.

Inspiring Futures

We are extremely proud of our ability to prepare your child for his or her next school.

We are committed to guiding and supporting each child to develop their independent and critical thinking skills, to nurture their curiosity and to have the confidence to be the very best version of themselves, eager to take the next steps.

Meet our Head

Having had my own children educated at Milbourne Lodge, I have a deep understanding of what makes this school so special:

It is our unique history and heritage and our strong sense of community. The depth and breadth of our unique curriculum, combined with the passion, creativity and dedication of my staff ensures that we fulfil each child's potential. We send boys and girls to a range of prestigious institutions but, most importantly, we create long and lasting memories of the joy of learning and build independence of thought and resilience of spirit, laying down strong foundations for their future.

Judy Waite, Head

We are Milbourne Lodge

Our culture of integrity, mutual respect and compassion binds us together in a strong community, in which we take great pride. We have a rich history and heritage, and strong traditions, yet are innovative and forward-thinking in our approach to all aspects of education. We enjoy a reputation for excellence: academic, sporting, musical and creative.

It does a good job of cherry-picking the best of the modern and the traditional.
