What the Good Schools Guide says...

Relaxed but cheerful, busy and purposeful atmosphere, a family school with a healthy balance of discipline and freedom...Though unusual for the times, no mobiles, no iPods or electronic devices allowed. Pupils communicate with their parents by the old fashioned means of weekly letters...concentrating on developing well-rounded individuals, whilst still aiming for those highly competitive top scholarships.

What the school says...

Boarding is central to the ethos of the school, with the Headmaster and his family living in the heart of the building. The Headmaster's wife takes a lead pastoral role and helps new boarders and their parents settle in to boarding life. There is a full weekend programme, together with a broad range of evening and extra-curricular activities. Music, drama and sport are particularly strong. Roughly 70% of children in the Prep School are full boarders. The school has high academic expectations and children achieve entry to the country's leading public schools.

Children in Year 7 spend a whole term at Chateau de Sauveterre near Toulouse in France, where they are immersed in the French culture and language. Mowden Hall is a member of the Cothill Educational Trust.

Special Education Needs

The Learning Support Department's aim is to help children with specific learning difficulties to read, spell and cope with the academic curriculum, ultimately resulting in them passing Common Entrance in their final year. Pupils follow a multi-sensory teaching programme delivered by a specialist teacher, mostly on a one-to-one basis. The number of lessons they attend and the speed at which they complete the programme is tailored to their individual needs. The department liaises with colleagues across the teaching staff in order to provide support and encouragement to pupils across the whole curriculum, as well as outside agencies when necessary.
