I’ll shortly be moving to Surrey with a 5 and 2 year old (both girls). I’m looking for a prep school (thanks to their dad’s work funding) which is likely to accommodate an in year reception place plus a good nursery for the younger when she turns 3. Location is flexible as long as in west surrey or nearby.

Must be:
Highly likely to give siblings a place
Be academic but not too pushy
Have good facilities (music, sports, drama, IT etc)
Ideally have a community of local families rather than people commuting a long distance
Not be elitist
Encourage the children to become their own personalities, build confidence and expand minds. Prepping for standardised testing is not my number 1 priority.
Be worth paying for.
Give excellent, regular feedback to parents and share information about what the children are learning.

Open to single sex or mixed. Prefer 2 form entry but open minded. Would love one which goes all the way to secondary but a prep is fine.

Any help much appreciated. Thanks

Guildford is brilliant for girls schools.

Guildford High School is excellent and creates wonderfully rounded girls. It is academic but not a hot house.
Tormead also very good, a slightly softer vibe.
Prior’s Field a much more pastoral, laid back sort, definitely worth looking at.
