Our Century of Excellence

Celebrating its centenary in 2019, Oakleigh House Preparatory School has a rich history of providing exceptional education. Originating as a private institution with a modest class of 25 pupils, it has evolved into a thriving community of 200. In 1995, it became part of the Ffynone House School Trust and, in 2007, joined the Cognita Schools Group.

Throughout its journey, Oakleigh House School has established an enviable reputation for academic excellence, shaping confident and enthusiastic learners who carry their childhood memories into adulthood, fostering a robust work ethic and a lifelong love of learning.
