Life at Heywood Prep


Heywood Prep is an independent prep school and nursery for boys and girls aged 2 to 11, located in the heart of Corsham, Wiltshire.

The school was founded in 1940 and has been on the present site since 1953. The site is mentioned in the Domesday Book and the grounds still contain part of the ruins of the original priory from which the building and the street in which it stands derive their names.

The main school building is a handsome Georgian manor house constructed in 1776. A separate building on the same site, formerly the Corsham Fire Station, houses the Nursery at Heywood Prep.

The school is set in two acres of beautiful gardens where children can explore and play. In addition, there is a playing field, an all-weather sports court, school hall and dining hall.

As one of the few truly independent schools in the area, we are well placed to prepare your child for the next stage of their education, whether that is in the independent or state sector.
