Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Description

Olive Tree School is an independent day school for boys and girls in the London Borough of Lewisham. The school has a Muslim ethos. The school opened in 2003. The school is located within the premises of the mosque and community centre, LIC. The Nursery is in a separate part of the building. The main school and the Nursery have entrances on Mount Pleasant Road. The school uses off-site centres in Lewisham for physical education. The school has a board of trustees, which is the proprietor. There is also a separate governing body. A small number of trustees are also governors. Inspection report: Olive Tree School, 27–29 November 2018 Page 11 of 17 Since the previous standard full inspection, there have been several changes in leadership. A new headteacher was appointed and has been in post since September 2017. A new deputy headteacher has been in post since September 2018. Two trustees, including the chair of trustees have resigned. Two governors have resigned. The school’s last standard inspection took place in March 2017, when the school was judged to be inadequate. Many independent school standards in parts 1, 2, 3, 5 and 8 were unmet. The school had a progress monitoring inspection in September 2017. At this inspection some standards relating to teaching, health and safety, risk assessments and the premises were met. Some standards remained unmet. The school is in breach of its registration because the total number of pupils on roll is 117, the number of full time pupils is 109, which is above the school’s capacity of 106. Leaders say that the Department for Education (DfE) has been informed.
