Grace Dieu ranked as top 100 Independent Prep School in England!

Grace Dieu is absolutely delighted to be ranked as one of the top 100 independent preparatory schools in England, according to The Sunday Times.

Overall, Grace Dieu ranked 91st in England in the table.  Impressively, we were the only independent prep school in Leicestershire to be listed in the top 100!

The School discovered the good news on Sunday, when the 2018 Schools Guide was published in The Sunday Times, as well as online via their Parent Power database –

This is the 25th edition of The Sunday Times Schools Guide, Parent Power, and the first to use the new Sat examinations, which where introduced in 2016 with the aim of raising academic standards in primary education.

“We have always been confident that Grace Dieu offers exceptional standards of teaching and learning, but to have this recognised nationally is just fantastic,” says Headmistress Margaret Kewell. “Whilst we are delighted to be listed as one of the top prep schools in the country, the fact that Grace Dieu is the only prep school in Leicestershire is just the icing on the cake!”

Grace Dieu’s success is due to its small class sizes, exceptional teaching, engaging curriculum and its commitment to support every child to develop academically.  Pupils are monitored through termly testing, which not only adeptly prepares them for their senior school entrance exams, but also ensures that each and every child’s progress is carefully tracked, and, where needed, supported and developed.
