What The Good Schools Guide says..
Some schools, en masse, can make visitors feel a trifle threatened: ‘What are you doing in our space?’ Not so Warwick.

What the school says...
Visitors to Warwick Junior School often comment on the happy atmosphere and the warm, caring relationship between staff and pupils. The school caters for approximately 250 boys aged 7 to 11. Most boys enter the Junior School at age 7, but entry is possibly at age 8, 9 or 10.
/> External facilities at the school are outstanding and include a swimming pool and professional theatre. 50 acres of playing fields include rugby pitches, cricket pitches and tennis courts. Inside the wonderful facilities continue with bright, modern classrooms and include a fully equipped laboratory, art studio, library, two ICT suites and a fully equipped Design and Technology workshop.
Class sizes are small with a maximum of 24 boys in year 6.
The school recognises that every boy is unique and that each will have a distinct set of abilities and talent. So, in addition to what happens in the classroom, boys have the opportunity to take part in a huge range of activities including Cookery, Debating, Fencing, Golf, Guitar, Hockey, Kung Fu, Orchestra, Rock Band, Ultimate Frisbee and many more.
Don't take our word for it, do visit the school yourself. New taster sessions are available for your son to spend a morning in the school, taking part in lessons and having fun at break time and lunch. ...Read more
