What The Good Schools Guide says..
St Hugh’s is without doubt the tidiest school we’ve ever visited and it’s not just the buildings and grounds that are polished and groomed, the teachers too were quite remarkably elegant – not a baggy cardigan or tatty sandal in sight...seems to produce thinkers and listeners (as opposed to shouters) and recognition for this comes in the form of a clutch of top awards for debating and public speaking.
What the school says...
At St Hugh's we are committed to children's broader personal development as well as their preparation for scholarship and common entrance examinations to senior independent schools. We are a leading co-educational, day and boarding school with 349 boys and girls from the ages of 3 to 13, sited in and around a Jacobean manor house with extensive, wooded grounds and excellent, modern educational facilities. St Hugh's is a very special place and we warmly invite you to come and see why. ...Read more

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2006, Mr Andrew Nott BA (early 50s). Son of a bishop, educated at The Beacon Prep and King’s, Taunton. Studied history at the University of Wales, PGCE Westminster College, Oxford. Worked for the Church Commissioners where he met his wife, Sarah. First teaching post at St Andrew’s School, Eastbourne, rose to deputy head. Thence to Davenies for his first headship prior to St Hugh’s. Parents describe him as ‘amazing’ (adjective also frequently applied to Sarah) on a personal level; one or two said they found him a little shy on more public occasions.
Mr Nott is proud of his scholars’ achievements but he is also a true champion of the strugglers and late bloomers who are inevitably part of the cohort of a non-selective school. He told us that he...
Special Education Needs
At St Hugh's, children of all ages receive extra support if any area of their learning is of concern. We have small classes throughout the school which means that all children's needs can be supported and catered for, whether they are gifted and need extension, or need extra support to enable them to cope with the curriculum. The Prep-Prep department has a qualified learning support assistant who can give extra help to individuals or small groups of children. As they move through the school, specific concerns are first dealt with in the small teaching groups, with advice from the Learning Support staff, who later withdraw children from class for one to one lessons. As shown below, we support a wide range of mild and moderate learning difficulties, including dysgraphia. 09-09
