Welcome to
Unicorn School

A welcome from
our Headteacher

Unicorn School was founded in 1970 by a small group of local parents and teachers who wanted to create a school that offered children a rounded education, encouraging them to flourish creatively and to enjoy the process of learning, in a safe and happy environment.


"Unicorn School is a friendly, fun and creatively stimulating co-ed prep school with a really caring ethos"
Breadth of Opportunity

A broad and creative education

We pride ourselves in preparing children for the ever-changing world ahead, cultivating not just academic prowess, but also confidence, resilience, adaptability, and the lasting virtues of kindness and compassion. We want them to think independently and creatively and not to be afraid of making mistakes along the way.

success is not just academic

Celebrating individual strengths

Unicorn is not just a place for academic excellence, but a vibrant hub of extra-curricular and enrichment activities for every child. From varied sports programs to arts and music sessions, our diverse range of activities aims to nurture well-rounded individuals. Rock band, virtual reality, chess, karate, cookery, Unicorn singers, dance, pottery, golf, padel, riding and sailing are just a few of the exciting opportunities awaiting your child.

Unicorn children are courageous, reflective and, above all, kind.

A kind, caring family feel

We place an emphasis on the importance of building a sense of community, teaching children to appreciate diversity, and instilling values that promote compassion, empathy and respect.

For children to thrive both inside and outside the classroom, they need to know they matter and that they are fully supported. At Unicorn, the pastoral care and wellbeing of the children is our utmost priority. We provide a warm and nurturing environment along with the excellent relationships between children and staff which means that no child has any doubt the staff here will lend a safe and sympathetic ear whenever they may need it.
