About the Junior School

The thriving Junior School is set in the home of Victorian landscape artist Thomas Sydney Cooper, who spend much time and money developing the glorious gardens in which our children can play. 14 acres of idyllic gardens provide the 200 pupils wth dens and climbing frames, a stream and outdoor amphitheatre as well as a swimming pool, tennis courts, astro pitch and a sport field.

We have a small but very comfortable Boarding House within the main building, and welcome full, weekly or occasional boarders from the age of seven upwards. With London under an hour away, our boarding package can include accompanied travel to and from St. Pancras at the weekends allowing a happy balance for busy London living families.
