As a boy's preparatory school there was shortage of girls to fill the female lead roles in 1951, but as they say the show must go on!

Fan Court School opened in 1932 as a boy's preparatory school, in Longcross, Surrey. It did later admit girls, daughters of staff members and sisters with siblings in the school. In 1978 Fan Court merged with Claremont (a girl's senior school) and relocated to the Claremont site in Esher. The original Fan Court estate was sold off and broken up into a number of private residential properties.
