“They say they give children the ‘feathers to fly’ we say; they help them soar”
“It’s pretty bucolic: we spotted children cartwheeling on the croquet lawn, racing around with cricket bats and swinging from old tyres hanging from the trees, sporting proper rosy cheeks and a healthy outdoorsy glow. The school is anchored around a pristine, grand white country house, with a nursery and pre-prep on site. There’s a sense of delicious freedom and fresh air”
“Parents can’t believe their luck to have stumbles across Lambrook, wondering at how such an all-rounder country prep can be within such easy reach of West London. Head Jonathan Perry is one of a kind, and parents marvel at his ability to proffer a smiling welcome each morning, come rain, shine or minus two degrees. There is a real outdoor culture: little ones have wellies and waterproof all-in-ones so they can romp freely through the 52 acres. The amazing facilities are ever improving: pupils are enjoying synchronised swimming in the new pool, acting in the Performing Arts Centre, and studying in the new Queen’s Building.”
Good Schools Guide – 2020
If you’re lucky enough to visit the magnificent white Berkshire mansion that is Lambrook on a sunny day, it is a glorious site. And if you pick a day to see the school’s 52 acres of lush prime estate at their peak of green and pleasantness, expect to see children playing under distinguished trees, with the cricket pitch and nine-hole golf course (yes, really) looking like velvet and birdsong coming from every direction….Lambrook is a happy, dynamic and unstuffy prep school in an idyllic pastoral setting where children are educated to the best of their potential. Providing a fabulous range of opportunities to broaden horizons and instil new interests…

The Week – ‘Great for Extra-Curricular Activities’
“There’s a huge amount happening inside and outside the classroom at this Berkshire Prep – from whole school theme days (space day and medieval day, for example) to charity fundraising….the School’s activities programme…archery, cycling and digital photography…Meanwhile Year 5 to 8 pupils follow the Lambrook Leadership Challenge, learning about the principals of leadership.”
Parents love the facilities, the ridiculous choice of clubs and after-school options and the head gets a good report. Their children are happy, enjoy school life and are well prepared for life after Lambrook. There’s a lot to love.
