Cheam School is located less than an hour from Heathrow Airport and within easy reach of London. Cheam is also only 15 minutes away from Highclere Castle, of Downton Abbey fame. Cheam School dates back to 1645, but it moved to its current site in 1932, where its 100 acres of pristine grounds are dominated by the beautiful Georgian mansion. Its former pupils include Prince Charles, the heir to the throne and Prince Philip, the queen’s husband.
