What says..

A number of parents who have moved children out of the London pressure cooker told us that while Bilton Grange is less in your face, academically pushy than its London counterparts, it does get children to the best schools. We visited as academic scholarship exams had finished, and one group was busy designing Bilton Grange’s own Cluedo whilst another was making a trebuchet.  The children love the fact that they can do sport more or less every day and they like the fact girls play cricket...

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmaster

Since September 2021, Gareth Jones, previously head at St Andrew’s Prep, Eastbourne for six years. Before that, he was at Dragon (Oxford), where senior roles included director of sport and housemaster. Read English and history before doing his PGCSE in primary education and a master’s in educational leadership.

Entrance

Two or three form entry. Slightly more boys than girls (particularly amongst boarders) but it’s not obvious looking round. Non-selective, though the school says they are looking for children who can access what is, in an age appropriate way, an academic curriculum. A number come in from London at 11+ for the final two years, to get the boarding experience or just to get away from the London hothouse. School became part of the Rugby School Group in 2020, but the admissions process remains the same.
