Elstree School is an English preparatory school for children aged 3–13 at Woolhampton House in Woolhampton, near Newbury in the English county of Berkshire. The school has announced it is becoming fully co-educational from September 2020.

History

1848–1938 in Elstree, Hertfordshire

As its name suggests, the school was founded in 1848 in Elstree, Hertfordshire, at Hill House on Elstree Hill,[1] an 18th-century Grade II Listed Building.[2] Today the building is used as Bupa Care Centre.[3]

Since 1938 in Woolhampton, Berkshire

With the approach of the outbreak of the Second World War, in 1938,[4] Elstree School was evacuated to Woolhampton House in the Berkshire village of Woolhampton, and has remained there ever since.[5][6]
