What People Say

A unique and inspirational school


Teaching here is exceptional… A beacon for the future

The Good Schools Guide

We have been thrilled with the quality of education. Our daughter (a native English speaker) follows the comprehensive English curriculum and in parallel has adapted to the immersive Chinese programme with a high proficiency in Mandarin. The school also values the balance of scholastic pursuits with an extremely wide variety of extracurricular activities.

Bilingual, bicultural, biliterate – and unique

The Good Schools Guide

Most prep schools are old-fashioned. Kensington Wade is a 21st Century School

Barnaby Lenon, Chairman, Independent Schools Council and former Headmaster, Harrow School

At Kensington Wade, the staff are experienced but relish the opportunity to do things the way they believe will work best

Current parent

We’re delighted to name Kensington Wade as the inaugural winners of the ISA Award for Innovation in Education 2022. Not only do they offer a blended curriculum, which is taught in both languages, but also diverse ways for students to embrace both cultures. Pupils become skilled intercultural navigators for the realities of our diverse society.
