Welcome to Unicorn School

I am delighted to welcome you to Unicorn School, a co-educational, independent prep school in Kew, Richmond.

Unicorn was founded by a group of parents and teachers in 1970 who were inspired to create a school that would educate children while simultaneously encouraging them to flourish creatively and enjoy the process of learning.

We hope you enjoy looking through our website which captures the spirit of Unicorn. Please visit us and see for yourself the fun our children have learning in a happy environment.
