Greenacre School for Girls was an independent girls' school, founded in 1933, in Banstead, Surrey, England, which closed in 2017.[1]

It was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate[2] and was a member of the Girls' Schools Association.[3] The governors of the school turned it over to United Learning in 2015.[4]

It closed in 2017, at the end of the academic year. The site is now used for the new independent and co-educational Banstead Preparatory School, which opened in September 2017 with the merger of Greenacre School for Girls, Priory School, and Bramley School in Banstead, Surrey.[5][6][7][8] The new school is on the former Greenacre site, for pupils aged from 2 to 11.[9] Pupils in Greenacre Junior School will transferred to the new school, and pupils in the Senior School were guaranteed places at other local schools.[5] Banstead Preparatory School is run by United Learning.[10]
