Radnor House Prep School

– A letter from the Head

Hello, I am delighted to introduce myself as Head of the new Radnor House Prep School, opening in September 2023. Having lived and worked in Richmond and Twickenham for over 20 years, I am very aware of the excellent reputation of Radnor House senior school. I am so excited to be given this opportunity and I look forward to working closely with parents, children, and the wider Dukes community to build upon Radnor’s established success…

I am very proud to be taking the school forward into its next chapter as a prep school for girls and boys aged 3-11. Education should provide the best preparation for next steps into senior school and life beyond, and in my view children should receive an education based on encouragement rather than pressure. The very best results come from a broad base, an interesting and challenging curriculum, and a strong and supportive network of parents, pupils and school.

We have the chance to create something new and exciting at Radnor House Prep School. But please be assured, the new prep school will be founded on the same core principles as the current senior school: courage, excellence, perseverance and respect, and those values will underpin everything we do.As a prep school, we will benefit from the wonderful riverside site, and the refit planned for summer 2023 will provide us with more outstanding resources for an exceptional educational experience. Our children will also have the chance to progress directly into Kneller Hall School, the new Dukes senior school opening in Twickenham in September 2023.

I look forward to welcoming parents to Radnor in the autumn term. Meanwhile, please register your interest so that we can keep in touch and update you on our progress as we move towards an exciting new future.

Best wishes,

Stephanie Piper

Radnor House Prep School

Radnor House Prep School is a new independent co-educational day school, opening in September 2023.  The school will educate and inspire girls and boys from ages 4 to 11, with three main entry points in Reception, Year 3 and Year 5. The school will enjoy a stunning location on the banks of the River Thames in Twickenham, which is currently home to Radnor House Twickenham senior school.

Life at Radnor House will be shaped by the school’s commitment to providing an active learning environment for limitless minds. Everyone firmly believes that all pupils are capable of great things if effectively taught, motivated and inspired by their school environment. Pupils will thrive in small classes with a strong focus on individual attention. This vision is underpinned by four key values which are central to school life:


Courage – we expect everyone to try their best, to have a go and to be brave in their approach to all the challenges of school and the wider world.

Excellence – we ask everyone to be the most excellent version of themselves, able to look themselves in the eye in the mirror every day and to know they could not have done any more.

Perseverance – we need to be able to persevere in order to achieve things, to maintain a growth mindset and not give up when the going gets tough.

Respect – we must treat each other with respect and kindness at all times, regardless of who we are or wherever our talents or weakness lie.


Radnor House Prep School will welcome girls and boys aged 4-11 from September 2023.
