Headmistress' Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Solefield School. Here, boys aged 4-13 are equipped with a love of learning, skills and values for life. We are one of very few boys’ only prep schools in the South East and are located close to London yet within walking distance of the beautiful town of Sevenoaks. A small and caring community, boys thrive and forge friendships which last a lifetime. We have a genuine focus on the individual and strive to find and nurture each child’s particular talents. Enjoying 95% + success rates at 11+ and the ISEB pre-test, boys leave us at 11 to join outstanding state grammar schools and also at 13 to join prestigious senior schools such as Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Caterham, King’s Canterbury and Epsom College, often with a range of scholarships. Our contemporary curriculum allows pupils to combine academic success with their wider interests. 

Life at Solefield is about much more than achieving excellent 11+, ISEB and Common Entrance results as we focus unashamedly on wellbeing and the whole child. Learning extends well beyond the classroom through our excellent co-curricular programme and boys all enjoy Art, Drama, Music, Sport, in excess of 40 clubs and residential trips from Year 5. Pupils also learn social responsibility and empathy, to think of others and to take an interest in the outside world. Our ethos, ‘value yourself, value others, value our world’ runs through all that we do. Our small size means that there is a strong sense of community where each individual is nurtured, cherished and encouraged to be the best that he can be. Each boy’s happiness and wellbeing are paramount to us.

We have limited places available. I would be delighted to meet with you. Please contact our Registrar, Mrs Barbara Volpato b.volpato@solefieldschool.org phone 01732 452 142
