A private school has been named in the top 40 of preps in the country. Oliver House School in Nightingale Lane, Clapham, is ranked 35th in The Sunday Times Top 100 Prep School list.
This makes Oliver House the sixth highest rated prep school in London. Ella Leonard, chairwoman of governors, said: “This has taken an enormous amount of hard work from all concerned and it shows that character-based education, and education in the virtues enables our children to flourish in all areas of their lives, including their academic achievement.
Headmaster Rob Farrell said: “This is a huge achievement and I would like thank all of the teachers and support staff whose dedication and effort is reflected in these results. I would also like to thank the children who worked so hard to attain such excellent results. I am incredibly proud of our school and of our children.”
