Welcome to Milbourne Lodge Pre-Prep and Prep School

As an Independent School in Surrey, we are united in a passion to maximise the potential and development of each child.

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. We create memories, celebrate diversity and offer inspirational teaching that is reflected in our outstanding academic results.

Throughout 2020 and into 2021, we provided certainty, consistency and structure at a time when all were hard to come by. Our  Online Learning provisions during lockdown ensured that our pupils received a continuous and uninterrupted education.

Our Admissions department is ready to talk to you about your child’s educational future.

Academic Excellence

Academic life is rigorous and varied. A broad, traditional curriculum is designed to be stimulating, demanding but sufficiently flexible for each child to develop at an appropriate rate.

Promoting Strong Values

Milbourne traditions blend with a forward-looking, balanced curriculum. We aim to foster an environment promoting tolerance, compassion, resilience, team spirit and awareness of changes in the world.

High Expectations

Inspirational teaching and a strong academic record in both Pre-Test and Scholarship mean Milbourne pupils are inspired to achieve. They embrace every opportunity and develop to the very best of their ability.

Work Hard, Play Hard

Both mental and physical health is vital. With daily timetabled sport, pupils can let off steam through a variety of sporting challenges. We believe resilience and determination aids every aspect of learning.

Pastoral Care

Health and happiness hold paramount importance. When children feel valued and secure they perform better and enjoy school. Milbourne Lodge provides a happy and purposeful environment that encourages confidence.


We believe our unique and special traditions are the reasons pupils graduate with such great stories. We always remember the extraordinary events in our lives.
