Co-ed from 2023

In April 2022 we announced that Durston House and Harvington Preparatory School in Ealing are to merge, creating a new and exceptional co-educational offer for West London families. This merger is now complete. 

As close neighbours, the schools already shared deep roots within the local community, and had in common a time-honoured commitment to delivering a high quality, holistic and values-led education that has provided generations of pupils with the foundations for future success.  Harvington Prep joined the Durston House family, to strengthen these ties and cement community links in a school that will continue to offer the highest standards of pastoral care, excellent academic preparation, and support each child to achieve their best and gain entry to their senior school of choice – including top schools in London beyond. Between April 2021 and September 2023 and led by Durston House Head Giles Entwisle, the two schools operated independently – with some sharing of facilities – until September 2023, when they merged fully as a single, co-educational school. 

“It will be an honour to lead these two outstanding schools into the future, as we build on our successes and come together to offer pupils a rich, outward-looking, co-educational experience founded on diversity, inclusion and respect. “We have an exciting opportunity to develop a premier academically rigorous co-educational school in Ealing, where pupils will be offered every opportunity to thrive in a caring, enriching and aspirational setting – regardless of their ethnicity, gender or faith”.
