Kensington Wade is an award-winning bilingual nursery and prep school in west London for children aged 3-11. At Kensington Wade half the lessons are taught in English and half in Chinese, giving children complete fluency in both languages.
Our child-centred approach creates a happy, stimulating environment with strong academic achievement and exceptional preparation for 11+ assessments for progression to top senior schools. We follow a British curriculum but what makes us unique is the fact that half of the day is spent learning in a Chinese environment and the remainder in English
We offer specialist teaching from the very start with all children enjoying music and sports lessons and, as they travel up the school, swimming, computing, Spanish and science. We also provide an extensive co-curricular programme with activities designed to challenge the children intellectually, physically and creatively.
Our pupils come from a wide range of backgrounds. Many of the families at Kensington Wade do not speak Chinese at home. They may speak another language but what all our families share is an understanding of the considerable benefits of bilingualism, and the value of learning a language from an early age in an immersive setting – particularly Chinese.
At Kensington Wade the happiness of our pupils is a huge priority, and we work closely with all our families to make sure that their children feel safe and loved by every member of our staff.
We are proud to be the inaugural winners of the 2022 ISA Award for Innovation in Independent Education. Please come to our next School in Action open event to discover more about our exciting school.
