Waverley School & Nursery

Private Preparatory School and Day Nursery in Wokingham, Berkshire. For Boys and Girls Aged 3 Months to 11 Years.

Waverley School is a non-selective independent nursery and primary school with a Day Nursery, Pre-Prep School and Preparatory School.  Waverley has regularly demonstrated itself to be the leading school in Berkshire based on our consistently strong academic results of our Year 6 SATS results since 2011*. We also feature in the nationally acclaimed Times Top 100 independent Prep School, reaching the top place in Berkshire in 2016. 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.  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. We provide care 51 weeks a year from 7.30am to 6pm, Monday through to Friday.
