Independent Boys Prep School near Barnes

Independent Boys Prep School near Barnes

Renowned for its nurturing ethos and tradition of development outstanding, kind and curious boys, Tower House is an exceptional Independent Prep School for boys aged between 4 & 13 years, with bus transport collecting children from nearby Barnes, in South West London. Our highly skilled and motivated staff take great pride in the development of our pupils’ characters from a young age, and emphasise skills such as confidence, empathy, and resilience, within a rich learning environment.

Starting Life at THS

Your child’s journey will begin in Reception and then progress from Junior School, Year 1 to Year 3, and up to Senior School, which finishes in Year 8. Our Reception induction programme begins during the Summer Term prior to your child starting at Tower House, providing a series of opportunities for our new boys and families to visit the school to ensure their transition from nursery is as smooth & successful as possible. We want our boys to be able to flourish & thrive as they develop into independent & happy learners.

We provide an exceptional education to our boys throughout all year groups in English, Maths, and extracurricular activities, from sports teams to drama productions. Characterised by our small year group sizes and specialist teachers, this enables individualised support where no boy is left behind; where everyone knows and supports one another, fostering strong self-esteem in our pupils.

Co-Educational Links

As an all boys’ school, we take pride in our collaboration with The Old Vicarage Girls’ School in Richmond, where every term we offer multiple opportunities for every year group from both schools to come together for academic workshops, social events, and extracurricular activities. We believe that opportunities to interact with girls will lead to a healthy understanding of positive relationships and diverse perspectives. Tower House and OVS are close friends sharing the best of both worlds for our pupils and their families.
