Greenacre School for Girls is an independent girls' school, founded in 1933, in Banstead, Surrey, England.[1] It has 312 pupils aged from 3 to 18.[2]

It is inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate[3] and is a member of the Girls' Schools Association.[4] The governors of the school turned it over to United Learning in 2015.[5]

It will close in 2017, at the end of the academic year. The site will be used for the new independent and co-educational Banstead Preparatory School, which will open in September 2017 with the merger of Greenacre School for Girls, Priory School, and Bramley School in Banstead, Surrey.[6][7][8][9] The new school will be on the current Greenacre site, for pupils aged from 3 to 11.[10] Pupils in Greenacre Junior School will transfer to the new school, and pupils in the Senior School have been guaranteed places at other local schools.[6] Banstead Preparatory School will be run by United Learning.[11]
