What says..

 Its seven and a half secluded acres comprise pitches, both Astro and grass, a conventional playground for younger children but – gloriously - masses of wooded slopes too, complete with a yurt and a tepee. Head, parents and children all very keen on outdoor learning; the school really lives it (eg acting out scenes from the Bayeux Tapestry). Sport is a serious matter, and even the tiniest children are taught the basic skills of the major sports. ‘Rounders is a silly game,’ says head, so is keen to introduce cricket to the girls, and has recently appointed a head of girls’ games to beef them up...

What the school says...

Many factors help create the distinctive Paragon Atmosphere. Our emphasis on laughter and having fun... on being stimulated and inspired... the way we bring our lessons alive... our Christian ethos and strong morale framework... our caring atmosphere... being based in a beautiful Georgian house with stunning grounds and woodland... the way we involve parents and members of the local community its these and much more.

We're proud of our consistently impressive academic results but we strive for much more than success in exams.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmaster

Since 2012, Andrew Harvey BA PGCE (late 30s). Brought up and educated in Dorset (Milton Abbey) with a degree in history and theology from the University of Derby, he taught briefly before joining the Royal Dragoon Guards for three years ‘mainly for the rugby – but also the leadership values’, though he always intended to return to teaching; ‘I’d conk out if I did it for 40 years, though’. Mr Harvey’s career has been forged in prep schools (most recently Lambrook), except for a stint as head of pastoral care at Sherfield School, and it is here that he appears to feel most at home. The unstuffy atmosphere and Bath location of The Paragon appealed to him, but it was the fact that he and his wife Anna thought it would be the ideal...
