What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2022, Brendan Brady. Hails from South Africa where he has clocked up over 20 years of experience as a prep school head, most recently stepping down as head of St Andrew’s Prep, Grahamstown, having decided to emigrate with his wife to the UK.

Special Education Needs

We have an excellent learning support department, staffed by one full-time member of staff and several part-time specialists. Teaching is normally on a one-to-one basis but there is some paired group work. Support may be given for gifted children, dyslexia, dyspraxia, extra help with literacy/reading, numeracy, study skills, and ESL. The school is proud of its attention to the individual and the Learning Support Department embodies this.
