What says..

There’s no mistaking what’s expected of you. Oppressively so? Not so far as our inquisitorial investigations revealed. Aspirational, more like. In any case, pupils know perfectly well who their brainy peers are and where they stand in relation to them. All the parents we spoke to assured us that eccentricity in all its guises is simply not an issue. And then Mr Smith-Langridge recalled the boy who loved knitting... and no one gave him a second glance. It helps to be gregarious, though...

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.

Sports

Equestrian centre or equestrian team - school has own equestrian centre or an equestrian team.

Fencing

Shooting

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmaster

Since 2012, Clive Smith-Langridge. Limbered up for the role by spending 16 years in marketing before switching to boarding schools (was previously deputy head at Walhampton). Brings essential savvy plus the experience of having captained a Chile cricket XI vs Brazil. In an evolving boarding market, Packwood is lucky to have his sort of business nous and strategic expertise: finances are sound, numbers healthy, pupils and teachers audited and fine-tuned. Appointed in tandem with his wife, Sally, who glories in the possibly puzzling title of Headmaster’s Wife, a post you’ll find in many prep schools. Hers is a salaried role with responsibilities on the pastoral side. Parents very much like this proxy-parent, family-feel arrangement. Clive and Sally have two daughters.

Entrance

Co-ed (some two-thirds boys), non-selective. Informal assessment for prep - Eng and maths. No assessment...
