main building of a school


Kew College Prep consists of four school buildings – Octagon, Sedum, Upton and the main building – all located on Cumberland Road in Kew. All areas are interconnected and provide a colourful, positive environment in which the children develop a love of learning.

The main school building houses a large hall, our beautiful Nursery, bright and airy classrooms for Years 3 to 4, specialist SEND facilities, as well as a cheerful and well-appointed library. A few steps away, adjacent to our playground and climbing frames, lies the Octagon building. In this distinctive structure, we find Reception and the Years 1 and 2 classrooms.

Our newly renovated Upton building houses classrooms for Years 5 to 6. With their own separate building, the children have specialist Maths, English and Reasoning courses to help them with their preparation for 11+ entrance exams. All rooms have state of the art interactive electronic white boards. We also have a large, light and spacious art studio that is always full of exciting artwork.

The Sedum building, named after our Sedum roof, hosts our modern science laboratory, a fully-equipped ICT suite and a large performance hall. Around it there are dedicated spaces for music, with rooms for group and individual practice.

Our onsite facilities are complemented by access to a large Astroturf pitch, the superb sports facilities at King’s House Sports Ground, the swimming pool at Pools on the Park in Richmond and the use of two other local PE spaces.
