About Our School


Athelstan House School is a non-selective, independent pre-preparatory school for boys and girls aged 3-7 years for Richmond Upon Thames and surrounding area.


At Athelstan House School we welcome children of all cultures, beliefs and abilities.


We attach a high priority to helping lead children towards an understanding of ‘fairness’ towards others and of being sensitive towards the feelings and needs of those around them.





Elsa Woolf - Head

What Ofsted says:

‘Pupils attain a high standard in reading, spelling and mathematics. They are well prepared for the next stage of their education.’


‘A strong emphasis is placed on pastoral care and the school helps pupils to develop into confident, articulate young people.’


‘The care shown by staff to pupils is of the highest order and results in pupils developing self-esteem and gaining a balanced awareness of the world around them.’
