Alleyn Court Prep School is a co-educational day preparatory school in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex for children up to age 11.


The school was founded in 1904 by Theodore Wilcox[1] and first opened in September of that year.[2] It was owned by the Wilcox family until 2015, when it was handed to a charitable trust.[3] For many years boys could be seen in bright pink caps and ties. The school moved to a new location in Southchurch Lawn in 1992 and the pre-prep school now uses parts of the old school in Westcliff.[citation needed]


According to the Independent Schools Council, the school "has high academic standards and an excellent reputation for sport and creative and performing arts." It also states that children "progress mostly to local grammar schools after 11+, with some also going to local Senior Independent Schools."[4]
