About Us

Located in the Westlands, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Edenhurst Preparatory School is a co-educational independent day school for pupils from age 3 months to 11 years.

The School was established in 1961 by the Copestick family, and over the decades has continued to evolve into a nurturing, family-orientated and academically excellent school. In our latest ISI inspection, we were awarded the grade of “Excellent” in all areas. This is the highest grade a school can be awarded under the ISI Inspection scheme. Our Early Years provision was awarded “Outstanding” for the third time in a row.

At Edenhurst we benefit from small class sizes, which enables us to offer a more personalised approach to learning, and allows each child’s individual strengths to be nurtured. Furthermore, we are committed to educating the ‘whole child’; our strong pastoral care system incorporates a structured Personal, Social and Health Education programme, including the School’s Core Values of Courtesy, Honesty, Respect, and Endeavour.

Children continue to achieve excellent 11+ results at Edenhurst. This year we once again achieved 100% success in getting Year 6 pupils into the senior schools of their choosing and 37% were awarded scholarships to notable Independent Schools.
