ISI Inspection

Lambrook is pleased to have been rated ‘Excellent’ in all categories by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in its recent Educational Quality Inspection. The school also met all required standards in its Regulatory Compliance Inspection.

The full inspection report can be found here.

The Inspectors state, “Pupils’ attitudes to learning are excellent for their age…they have extremely good concentration, are motivated and curious and successfully demonstrate a willingness to learn together.” Pupils are described as having “a strong awareness of the non-material aspects of life. They have a well-developed appreciation of the world around them and their impact on it, and a real love of life.” The inspectors also commented that “Pupils feel very well prepared for the next stage of their lives… by the time they leave the school they are confident, engaging, mature and thoughtful young adults.”


A short commute from Windsor (and easily accessible from London, thanks to a handy bus service), this co-ed, flexi-boarding prep – steered by the delightful Jonathan Perry, has it all. The 52 acres of grounds include an orchard, a small farm complete with chickens, bees and pigs, and a nine-hole golf course. The arts provision is particularly impressive, with the fabulous Diamond Jubilee Performing Arts Studio staging such productions as Shrek the Musical and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. A grounding Christian ethos (with funding from the Lambrook Foundation) ensures that opportunities are extended to the wider community, through transformational bursaries and a partnership with a school in South Africa. And to top it all off, our Tatler insider whispers, the food is absolutely delicious!

Talk Education

“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”

Good Schools Guide

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…

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.
