Widford Lodge aims to educate its pupils through a broad and balanced curriculum so that they can meet the challenges of the wider world.

Children of all abilities are educated in an environment where emphasis is placed upon providing a purposeful, safe and secure environment. This is achieved whilst taking into account the values of honesty, courtesy and respect of self and others.

Welcome to the Widford Lodge Preparatory School Website. Widford Lodge is a small family owned school that prides itself on providing an environment where children between 2½ to 11+ can flourish.


Traditional values are at the core of the school's philosophy, but we are mindful that we are preparing youngsters for a rapidly changing world. Quite simply, we feel that children who are happy and secure in their learning environment are children who are more likely to achieve their potential.

I do hope that by browsing this website you can get a sense of what Widford Lodge has to offer your child. Do come and visit us and meet the pupils and staff. I look forward to meeting you soon.
