We are very proud of our current ranking as the number 1 Prep School in Berkshire, and 14th nationally, based upon our strong academic track record (based on our Yr 6 SATS results). This is also the sixth consecutive year that we have been a Times Top 100 Prep School.  Our results are even more outstanding given that we are a non-selective school. However, our focus is very much on challenging every pupil to achieve their own excellence and reach his or her full potential within our happy, nurturing environment.  

Our latest inspection report gives an excellent understanding of our unique ethos and the benefits of an education at Waverley. Strong relationships between all members of our community were noted as an excellent feature of the school and are the cornerstone of our warm, welcoming atmosphere.  

In addition to academic success, we aim to encourage self-discipline, tolerance and kindness and to provide a broad, rich curriculum going far beyond national expectations. 

At Waverley, as well as providing the best support to enable your child to achieve their full potential academically, we also offer a wide range of sporting and extra-curricular activities to provide children with a balanced, active start in life. In addition, we also offer wrap-around care 51 weeks per year from 7.30am to 6pm via our Breakfast Club, After School Club and Holiday Club where children can take part in a range of artistic, creative and sporting opportunities.  

We hold regular Open Mornings but are always happy to welcome visitors for an individual tour of the school. Please contact the School office if you would like to book an appointment. Email us admissions@waverleyschool.co.uk or call us on 0118 973 1121.
