Welcome to St. Margaret’s Prep School in Gosfield, Essex

Elaine Powling - Principal

It is my pleasure to welcome you to St. Margaret’s Prep School's website.

St. Margaret’s is a happy, co-ed, Independent School for children aged 2 – 11.

Our lovely school is situated in 7 acres of beautiful parkland in the heart of Gosfield, Essex, close to Gosfield Hall and Gosfield Lake Golf Club, and within easy reach of Braintree, Sudbury, Felsted, Gt. Dunmow, Colchester and Chelmsford. 

Our school provides an excellent all round education. We are extremely proud of our ability to help pupils move successfully to their chosen secondary schools, and we have an enviable track record of Academic, Sport, Music and Art scholarships.

Our aim is to ensure that every child is engaged in their learning and given as many opportunities as possible for intellectual, physical and social growth. We do this within a structured, disciplined yet enjoyable, environment, where each child is helped to fulfil his or her potential, in class, in the arts, in music and on the sports field.  

We expect every child to leave our school with maturity, confidence and a sense of independence.

Visitors to our school comment on the warm, family feel they get as they walk through the door, finding the children polite, enthusiastic and well-mannered. Every day is an Open Day and I would be delighted to show you around. I look forward to welcoming you.
