What says..

Many parents have Mediterranean roots (Turkish, Spanish, Greek, Italian, Cypriot) and a firm belief in family, and the school reflects those values. Very much a traditional prep, it retains distinctive black and yellow blazers, formal good manners and neatly brushed hair. Rugby has put the school back on the prep school circuit, and more recently too has tennis.

Special Education Needs

Keble has a small team of professionals who support children with additional needs. These include three dyslexia-trained part-time teachers and learning support teaching assistants for Years 1 to 4. Support in the senior school is reduced and generally in-class. Children with a diagnosed need have a pupil passport with reasonable adjustments made. We support children with an EHCP, but Keble is not a specialist school and generally additional needs fall within the mild to moderate range.

The emotional well-being of all pupils is a key aim at Keble and is supported by the whole school ethos, PSHE syllabus and additional social skills input and support groups.
