About Us

The Mall is an independent prep school in Twickenham for boys age 4 to 11. We believe that all boys have potential and through our inspirational teaching and excellent pastoral care we can develop this and bring out the best in every boy.

We are a friendly, safe and supportive community where your son is known, valued and has a voice. Our rich and challenging curriculum will inspire his natural curiosity and independence and develop a lifelong love of learning and ignite interests in sport, music and the creative and performing arts.

We want your son to leave The Mall as a happy, confident, independent, resilient and well-rounded young man.  We will encourage your son’s awareness of the world around him while at the same time valuing the welfare of others.

In April 2017, we announced that The Mall School would move from being a 13+ to an 11+ school. As an independent prep school, we continue to prepare boys for a range of academically selective senior schools and our first set of 11+ offers and awards, published in March 2019, is testament to this success.

Boys have received 11+ offers not only from all the highly selective London all-boys senior schools that they regularly went to at thirteen but we have also had increased offers from co-educational independent day schools and from schools that will become new destinations for Mallians. Almost one-third of the cohort sat for and received offers from selective state grammar schools.

Mall parents say....

The Mall is an amazing school – it has exceeded our expectations – our son is so very happy and he is now thriving. His self-confidence has improved more than we could have hoped for.
