Coworth Flexlands School & Nursery is a caring, happy and successful independent preparatory school for girls aged 3 - 11 years and boys 3 - 7 years.
Our foremost priority is to provide a secure and happy school life enabling our pupils to obtain the skills to achieve heights in every discipline.
This success is a result of our philosophy that all pupils deserve the best and so are given high quality, specialist teaching across a broad curriculum. Threading through this central pillar of academic schooling the children are encouraged to develop social and emotional skills and good manners, all within a strong Christian & pastoral ethos that will serve them well throughout their lives.
Snuggled between Chobham, Windlesham and Sunningdale we offer quick and easy access to the M3 yet we are in the heart of the countryside. Thirteen acres of beautiful grounds and proximity to Chobham Nature Reserve give ample opportunities for cross-country runs and nature studies. As most pupils live close to the school it is easy to get involved in all out of school activities, such as the Cardinals netball club and the Surrey Academy of Musical Theatre programme. This strengthens friendship bonds across the years, between peers and their parents and is an added benefit to building lasting friendships
Our spacious, light-filled classrooms with specialist teachers and small teaching groups provide an excellent academic learning environment. Our dedicated facilities for sports, sciences, computing, languages, music and the arts complement our academic programme. These combine to provide your child with a stimulating environment at Coworth Flexlands that builds a genuine passion for learning and a curiosity beyond any syllabus.
We proudly hand our boys onto their chosen preparatory school at the age of seven knowing that they are skilled in academics, performing arts and sports and can bring much to their new schools. We are delighted to receive feedback that our boys continue with a strong work ethic and a maturity and confidence that gives them a robust platform from which to leap forward in the next stage of their educational journey.
New girls join us in Prep, aged seven, to take up all the advantages of a single-sex education at this impressionable time in their lives. Single sex form classes mean greater diversification of talent, sports teams within each year group and wider friendship circles, all of which enhances development.
We split the forms for academic subjects knowing smaller groups can improve pupil attainment through the freedom to ask questions, discuss areas of difficulty and engage in the collaborative work that so motivates girls of this age. Whether it is physics, maths or english in a small set or coming together for netball, Forest School, dance or drama we aim for the optimum group size. The continued specialist subject teaching and collaborative tracking of the girls’ progress across the whole curriculum ensures the learning path is seamless.
Coworth Flexlands School is successful in meeting its aims and this is reflected in the excellent achievements of its pupils

We are immensely proud of our girls when they leave us having secured places at a wide range of leading senior schools, many with scholarships or exhibitions. The polite confidence and self-assurance the girls take with them bear witness to the success of the educational experience we provide, with its focus on supporting the individual to take a full and active part in every aspect of our broad and varied curriculum.
