St Philip’s is a small Roman Catholic preparatory school for 110 boys aged 7-13. It was established in 1934 and is still located on its foundation site in the heart of Kensington in central London.
The school offers a broad and balanced curriculum that combines a strong academic, moral and religious education with a range of creative and sporting opportunities. It aims for every pupil to feel a valued member of the school community and to have a sense of being personally nurtured. Having experienced this, we hope that each boy is inspired to respond to others in a similar fashion.
Boys leave St Philip’s and go onto the senior school that is best-suited to their individual needs. The school enjoys strong links with all the senior schools it feeds, and counts among those the greatest schools in England.
