King's Mead School was opened as a boys' preparatory school in 1914 when the purpose-built school buildings were completed.

As such they were probably the only remaining example of their type built in the first part of the 20th Century.

Over 890 boys went to the school before it closed down and merged with another school near East Grinstead.

This web site is dedicated to the boys and staff of the school, for the vast majority of whom they were very happy days.
