What the school says...

Rupert House has a long and distinguished record of preparatory education for children. Starting with the creation of a strong sense of belonging within the school, we deliver a journey of academic, social and sporting discovery that inspires children to learn, grow and achieve individual success. We believe that happy children develop confidence and discover their full potential. ...Read more

What the parents say...

Rupert House is an outstanding school. The care and attention all staff give the children is excellent and the community around the school is wonderful. Our daughter is flourishing at Rupert House.

Rupert house has been fantastic for my daughters. Its pastoral care is outstanding. All the teachers really care and are fully committed to providing whatever level of support is needed. It really is a family school and communication between staff and parents is great. The girls have flourished here.

My two daughters attended Rupert House, with the second one now in Upper School. Both of my girls have been happy to go into school everyday and have had a fulfilling and stimulating time at the school. The teachers are committed, the curriculum is varied and the after school activities are enriching. I can't recommend the school highly enough!

Our daughter loves Rupert House! The school really encourages her to enjoy what she does and to strive to achieve her best. It takes the time to focus on her specific needs in a kind, nurturing and positive way. I have no problem in recommending the school.

I have two girls at this school and I can not recommend it enough. The pastoral care is incredible and their confidence and ability has soared since starting there. As full time working parents we also appreciate the support we receive in ensuring their school life runs smoothly. The school is small enough to give the attention needed and large enough to ensure their full potential is fulfilled.

This is lovely school in the centre of the town which offers a real sense of family as well as fantastic education. My son and daughter have both thrived here and the new head has implemented a huge number of improvements since she started a couple of years ago in particular to sport, IT, wrap around care & music.

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.

Special Education Needs

At any point in a child's academic career, from the moment they join Rupert Bears until the day they leave us at Year 6, they may require an extra helping hand. Whilst the majority of pupils' needs are met within the classroom through a differentiated curriculum and careful teaching and planning, a few need that little extra attention, be it educational, social, emotional or physical. Working closely with the child, parents, academic staff and form teachers, we can identify needs, refer, and support learners across the curriculum in a friendly integrated department. We also have links with outside agencies, such as speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and educational psychologists. The Learning Support team is experienced and fully qualified, working with current initiatives to make provision for a child’s specific needs. During the school day, children throughout both the Upper and Lower School may be supported by Learning Support staff in the classroom, taught individually or withdrawn in small groups to learn in a quiet, friendly setting. There is a charge payable when children have 1:1 lessons within the Learning Support department. Small group work across the school and 1:1 support with our Lower School Learning Support teaching assistants is not chargeable. Children enjoy working within the Learning Support department and respond enthusiastically to the targeted, fun and encouraging teaching. We know that children do not all learn in the same way or at the same pace. They are encouraged to consider their own learning styles and work together with the Learning Support team to develop the skills which will enable them to become independent learners. We give praise when the children develop strategies to help themselves and we view mistakes as an opportunity to learn and improve.
