Brief history of Bishopsgate

Bishopsgate is the successful outcome of a merger in 1996 between Scaitcliffe and Virginia Water Prep Schools. Combined the two schools had over 160 years of involvement in prep school education.

Bishopsgate is now a thriving IAPS co-educational preparatory school for 370 children, aged from 3 to 13.

Set in 20 acres of beautiful woodland close to Windsor Great Park, our children are inspired to learn in a wonderfully safe and spacious environment.

We see school as an extension of family life and so we work very closely with our parents. In our most recent inspection report, Pastoral Care at Bishopsgate was judged to be ‘outstanding’.
