What says..

Lots of push to get children to think for themselves, ask questions and ‘look at things in detail’. At least four hours of sport a week is taught by specialist teachers and coaches. Options include rugby, cross-country, cricket, golf, netball... ‘Whatever your child’s gift is they will find it here and then provide the resources to nurture it.’

What the school says...

When you speak to the parents of pupils at the school you get the feeling they secretly wish they could come here themselves. They say the school has helped '.. their childs personality to emerge'. It has all the resources needed to provide a child with a well-rounded education.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2011, Mr Jason Whiskerd BA PGCE. Previously head of Aldenham Preparatory School in Elstree, Hertfordshire and deputy head of the King's School (junior) in Chester. Read history and politics at Trinity College, Carmarthen (University of Wales) and serves as an ISI Inspector of other preparatory schools. He is also an active member of the Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS).

Mr Whiskerd is a keen sportsman, having played cricket and rugby at regional level and, as testament to his Welsh roots (he attended Llandovery College as a boy), Welsh rugby and Swansea City are his passion. He is married to a junior school teacher and has three daughters attending the prep and senior school. A friendly man: extended a hearty welcome and warm handshake when we visited.
