ISI (Independent Schools Inspectorate) Inspection Report May 2015
Exam success is almost incidental at this school, a by-product of everything else it does - which is how it should be. The result is happy confident girls.
Kensington Prep is such a warm and kind school - my girls have done very well and are very sad to leave. As a parent you feel you are part of one big family.
