Welcome to Wickham Court Senior School

Wickham Court is an independent co-educational day school for children from age 2 and a half up to 18 years; nursery through to the end of Key Stage 4. It is, as you will see, a very special place.


Wickham Court School is located in West Wickham, Kent between Bromley, Croydon and not far from Keston, Biggin Hill and Hayes. The School offers a superb education in an historical and culturally rich setting.

Here, you will find energetic, happy pupils; dedicated, experienced teachers; small classes; grounds that exude history and a safe and secure environment for learning.
Girls and School
Our school is a place that imparts to its pupils a love of learning and a reverence for ideas. It is a place that nurtures the total person; a place that educates character as well as intellect. And most assuredly, it is a place that will never overlook what Emerson called “the genius of the individual.”

This beautiful and historically rich 15th Century Manor House provides the perfect environment for learning. Fees are exceptionally competitive and have brought independent education into the grasp of most families.

We are inspected by Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted). You can feel secure that your children are in the best hands when you entrust them to us.

The school is run by an experienced Principal and the team with the support and security of a parent company that specialises in education.

Since the school opened in September 2002 for nursery and primary pupils, with the addition of seniors in September 2006, we have seen our pupils thrive in small classes led by dedicated, nurturing teachers.


Applications are considered throughout the year and if you would like your son or daughter to benefit from the outstanding education offered at Wickham Court, you would be most welcome to view the facilities and discuss our curriculum with Principal, Mrs Lisa Harries.
