We would be delighted to welcome you to Crown House to come and see why our school is a truly happy and unique place for pupils to learn.

We hold small bespoke Open House Tours every Monday and Thursday from 10.00am to 11.30am.

Open House Tours allow small groups of parents to come and visit Crown House Prep School in a relaxed, authentic and intimate way where they can see how we live, learn and play as a school community.

Crown House’s track record of academic excellence at the 11+ and our unrivalled attention to whole child development and wellbeing in High Wycombe, speaks for itself, but seeing is believing and I look forward to meeting you in person.

Welcome to Crown House

Crown House provides an outstanding education in a happy and nurturing environment where pupils are exceptionally well cared for and are encouraged to develop a lifelong love of learning.

The needs of our pupils are central to all that we do at Crown House. Our small class sizes and individualised learning environment ensures that our children are given the attention and support they deserve to excel and have an exceptional education. Our dedicated teaching staff and outstanding specialist teachers provide a wealth of opportunities for every child to find their passion and reach their potential in the classroom, on the sports field,  and as human beings. Pupils are given opportunities for leadership and areas of responsibility from an early age and throughout the school there is an emphasis on family and local community.

Children’s happiness and wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do.


Welcome to Crown House, where our children’s happiness and wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do.

At Crown House we know that confidence and a sense of security and warmth is fundamental to success, so we work hard to create a secure and welcoming environment where our activities are characterised by a sense of fun and challenge to ensure that all our pupils flourish.  We see each child as an individual and support them throughout their journey at Crown House.  We are justifiably proud of our pupils and the consistently high results they achieve.

Our Pre-Prep curriculum, including our Preschool is designed around the children’s interests, harnessing their love of asking questions and allowing them to become independent learners. Throughout Years 3 to Year 6, we continue to hold the development of the learner as well as the pursuit of academic excellence in equally high regard. Our pupils enjoy a weekly timetable that emphasises the core subjects of English, mathematics and science as well as the foundation subjects of humanities, sport art and languages alongside extra-curricular and wellbeing opportunities. We are committed to maintaining a rich and broad curriculum.

Crown House is a very happy community and we take our role in educating our pupils and equipping them for whatever their future holds very seriously. I am very proud of our school and I always enjoy the opportunity to show prospective pupils and their families around.
