Introduction

Chepstow House School is a co-educational prep school for children from nursery to Year 8, located in Notting Hill. Students can enter Chepstow House via admissions points 2+ and 4+ (non-selective) or at 7+, 8+ or 11+ (based on assessment). The number of children accepted at 7+ depends on the number of places available in the year group.

The school hosted an Open Afternoon in June. For information on any further opportunities to visit the school, check the their website:

For the year 2017/18, the fees for Chepstow House School were £6,590 per term. This worked out at £19,770 per year.
