Welcome to Victoria College Preparatory School

VCP is a warm, friendly school where boys can flourish. We help them discover their special interests and skills which inspires them to love learning and enjoy life. We aim high and celebrate everyone.

We offer boys a broad and balanced curriculum together with a vast array of extra-curricular activities. This combination provides a well-rounded education and a solid base for their future. Our teaching is focused but also dynamic and imaginative, both inside and beyond the classroom.

As well as having fun, forging friendships and creating memories, our boys work hard and work smart to achieve the high academic standards for which our school is renowned.

VCP aims to nurture respectful, resourceful and resilient young people and to help them build successful futures. We encourage boys to aspire to excellence in everything they do and make the most of all the opportunities we offer. Read more about our core values.

As an academically focused school, prospective students need to reach a certain level in reading, writing and maths to be eligible for a place at VCP. We also ask for references from their previous school. Entrance exams for Year 3 take place in January.

We have capacity for 300 students. Boys from a diverse range of schools and cultural backgrounds join us in Year 3 at the start of Key Stage 2 (aged six to seven). Each year group has three classes with a maximum of 25 students per class.

We work closely with Victoria College, our secondary school, where nearly all our students continue their education. This close connection ensures a smooth transition to the next stage of learning.
