Set in beautiful natural heritage gardens, Preshil, the Margaret Lyttle Memorial School is an independent co-ed school in Kew providing services to children and young people between the ages of 3 and 18 years.

Preshil offers a truly contemporary, globally minded alternative to conventional schooling. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum School, our accredited IB Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programmes (PYP, MYP & DP) align with the school’s focus on intellectual challenge, inquiry and research-based learning. These programmes accommodate individual choice and independent learning and encourage students to develop ‘the courage to question’, to find their own voice and to become responsible and active global citizens beyond the classroom.

From the earliest years, children are encouraged to develop higher order thinking through play, problem solving, collaboration, philosophizing and exercising choice. Kindness, respect and courage are key learnings underpinning a creative rich programme which nurtures and inspires young minds.

Preshil is committed to the creation and maintenance of a child-safe school environment.
