150 Years of History

Founded in 1870, Homefield Preparatory School is now celebrating its 150th anniversary; we are a school steeped in history. Right from the very beginning to the present day we have been renowned for our high standards of scholastic achievement and for producing boys with extremely good manners and a strong sense of civic responsiblility.

In April 1968, Group Captain Douglas Bader opened the school (above photo) at our present location on Western Road, Sutton. Parents, Old Boys and the Homefield Parents' Association contributed time and money to the landscaping of the grounds at the time. In 1970 the school’s centenary was marked by a week of joyous celebrations. In 2020 we will be hosting a Grand Ball to celebrate our 150th anniversary. Please do get in touch with us if you are interested in attending.
