Bickley Park School

Get Directions



For over a hundred years, Bickley Park School has stood proud as a world-class preparatory school for boys. During this time, the world has changed a great deal, but our aim has not. We prepare your sons for their future, not just for the working world, but for life. Our young men leave us confident, articulate, life-long learners, well-equipped and eager to make the world a better place.

At BPS we understand that no two boys are alike, and we celebrate the differences in our pupils. Our teachers are effective at identifying and nurturing a wide range of interests and abilities. Our curriculum is designed to maximize impactful learning for boys, taking the time to understand how individuals learn and grow.

It is this firm commitment to boys’ all-round success which led the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) judging Bickley Park as ‘excellent’ in March 2023 for both Pupils’ Attainment and Pupils’ Personal Development, the highest possible grading for an Independent School. In addition, Bickley Park was named Prep School of the Year in 2021 for our ‘well-articulated, coherent and holistic Four Quadrants of Learning programme’, a proud testament to the hard work and dedication of our whole community. 

When joining BPS your son will benefit from a truly broad and balanced curriculum. This well-rounded learning experience encompasses Academics, Arts, Community, and Sports and Outdoor Learning. Together the Four Quadrants arm your son with skills for life: a love of learning; the ability to communicate confidently; the desire to contribute meaningfully to society and show initiative, resilience, teamwork, and the confidence to take risks. 

I am incredibly proud to be the Headmaster of such a wonderful school and enormously proud of our boys.

It is my absolute privilege to lead such an amazing team of staff and to be a part of such a warm and special community. But don’t just take my word for it –come and see for yourself! Websites are great but to really get a feel for a school, you simply have to visit.
