We are a co-educational school for pupils aged 3 - 13. Pupils can join us at any stage. Many join us for their Years 7 & 8. Our pupils go on to secure scholarships at prestigious public secondary schools, or their state equivalents such as The Thomas Hardye School.
We take an unashamedly traditional approach to the vital importance of the basics; mental arithmetic, times tables, good grammar, spelling and punctuation. We ensure we tailor learning to the specific needs of the pupil. We strive to balance excellence with inclusion both inside and outside the classroom.
Termly boarding is available for UK and Non-UK residents and we would welcome you to visit our exquisitely decorated “home from home” boarding house. Caring and attentive house-parents ensure a strong sense of belonging and personal identity.
