Why choose Oakfields Preparatory School?

Welcome to Oakfields Preparatory School, a happy and vibrant independent day school in Upminster, Essex, offering a tailor-made, holistic education for boys and girls, aged 3 to 11.

We believe that learning should be exciting and fun and we strive to be truly innovative and forward-thinking. Alongside a strong academic ethos, we offer an energetic and diverse range of extra-curricular activities, along with enrichment programmes dedicated to increasing learning opportunities for all children.

There are many compelling reasons to choose Oakfields private school for your child. Here are just a few:

Classes at Oakfields

We are committed to providing an inspiring and empowering learning environment, where every child achieves their full potential, be it academic, sporting, creative or musical. Being a small school gives the ability to have smaller classes which take less of a “one size fits all” approach, and the teacher has the ability to tailor lessons more specifically to different students.

An Exceptional Nursery

We understand that parents want to give their children the best possible start in life and our vibrant and nurturing Nursery impressed the Independent Schools Inspectorate and was compliant  in all areas in January 2018.

Academic Excellence and Success

We support our children to gain access to their first choice secondary school, with many gaining scholarships.

Specialist Enrichment for All

We offer an outstanding and diverse choice of curricular and extra curricular sports, music, languages and arts programmes, taught by highly qualified and specialist staff.

Destination Schools

Our forward-thinking ethos prepares children for future success, with essential qualities of kindness, compassion and confidence. The school prepares pupils rigorously for successful entry to senior school at 11+, according to each child’s academic profile. This preparation becomes more explicit from Year 4 onward.
