Welcome to King's House School

We are an independent prep school and nursery in Richmond welcoming children aged 3 to 13.

Welcome to King's House School

Pupils at King’s House School develop into confident, independent young people in a nurturing and supportive environment.

Welcome from the Head

At King’s House we take pride in offering each child a high-quality, broad academic and co-curricular education, allowing children to develop the skills and mental resilience needed to succeed in their next steps in life. Established in 1946, KHS fosters a lifelong love of learning in a caring and supportive environment, where children feel secure and able to flourish.

Pupils have the opportunity to take part and develop in all areas of school life, so that the needs of each individual are truly catered for: from Year 1 they benefit from the first-class facilities at our 35-acre Sports Ground in Chiswick. King’s House is independent of any senior school, and proud of the wide range of day and boarding schools that our pupils go on to at 13, with many achieving scholarships.

We are delighted to be transitioning to co-education, with the first girls joining Reception in September 2024. I hope you will take the time to learn more about us, and we look forward to meeting you soon.

Refreshingly normal in this often competitive and frenetic world, King’s House is a successful school with a clear sense of purpose. No hot-house, but a friendly school where happy children do well and with exciting developments in the pipeline.

We are very excited that our son will attend his first choice senior school! We know this result can’t be achieved without the great supports and guidance from KHS. We’d like to express our sincere gratitude for your kind advice and special attention you’ve paid to our child.
