Unicorns do exist! Unicorn School celebrates 50th anniversary

Unicorn School's 50th birthday

Unicorn School was founded in Kew, Richmond, by a group of local, pioneering parents and teachers who wanted to create a school that offered a rounded education, encouraged children to flourish creatively and enjoy the process of learning.

Fifty years on, the school has come a long way from the village hall venue (that had to be packed up on a daily basis) and second-hand furniture reclaimed from a GLC furniture dump! Today, based in a converted Victorian house opposite Kew Gardens, the school provides a broad and rich educational experience, alongside an outstanding reputation in the arts. Unicorn covers much more than the National Curriculum, focusing on developing social skills, resilience and a love of learning at all ages, with its ethos remaining as strong today as it was at the beginning.
