We are moving back to the UK next year after 7 years abroad and we are looking at Lambrook and Eagle House prep schools for our two sons (aged 9 and 7). Wellington is our top choice for senior school so Eagle House would normally be the obvious prep choice - but I saw some slightly negative mentions of Eagle House from a few years ago on Mumsnet so I'm interested in getting latest views on both schools. TIA.

A friend of mine has moved her DC out of Lambrook, so I wouldn't say it's great!

They are both good schools, but as you are interested in Wellington, then Eagle House is the obvious.

Thanks so much for your reply - what was it that made them want to move?

Newscribe - we are also living overseas and considering Eagle House for our three children next year. How have you found it and the adjustment returning to the UK?

About to go and look T Eagle House too. It is full for the two years we want though. Call and check they have room first.

@ifitssnowingimgoing : we are moving back in April and my sons are starting Eagle House then, so we haven't started yet! Apologies for the delayed reply.

If you are looking at boarding at Eagle House while you remain overseas look carefully how many others board at weekends. They are full during the week but weekends there are hardly any children.
