What says..

A fantastic setting, fabulous limestone mansion set in beautiful grounds. It couldn’t be more quintessentially English. Very much a community feel, and most parents chose the school because of this. ‘We fell in love with the place as soon as we walked through the door.’ ‘It’s a delightful place; my children are so happy here.’ Saturday morning school for all from year 4, followed by matches. ‘If you choose Witham you have to commit to…

What the school says...

Witham Hall is a happy and thriving boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 4 to 13 years. The heart of the school is a Queen Anne country house built in 1752, situated in the village of Witham-on-the-Hill near Stamford in Lincolnshire. The school was founded in 1959. We are committed to an education both in and beyond the classroom, thereby enabling the academic, artistic and physical potential of each child to flourish. Coupled with their purpose and determination to succeed, this broad programme enables our children to acquire a strong sense of achievement, a quiet confidence and an awareness of both themselves and each other. Imagination and creativity flourish, and the emphasis on pastoral care and personal growth ensures individual skills and strengths can be identified at an early age.

Boarding at Witham is a happy and highly rewarding experience, made popular by the weekly and flexi-boarding options that are available. Most pupils from the age of 8 enjoy the special atmosphere that boarding offers, thereby further enriching their time with us. The sense of pride that our children, their teachers and our support staff have in the school underpins a true community spirit and makes Witham a special place. The strength and nationally developing reputation of the school is reflected in an ever increasing catchment area and consistently strong demand for places across all year groups.

Became a housemaster before rising to assistant deputy head. Married to Jossie, his ‘greatest asset’, whom he met at university.
