Welcome to Garden House School

Garden House is a unique, family-run school for girls and boys between the ages of 3 and 11; providing the best possible foundation for their future education and adult lives.  From Reception, the girls and boys are taught separately for most academic lessons but they have numerous opportunities to interact and collaborate with each other during the school day, giving our children the very best of both worlds.

Emma Studd, Girls' Head

The School is a happy and stimulating environment where the children are not merely nurtured but inspired to discover their innate talents and passions. This environment cultivates self-assured individuals, instilling within them a profound and enduring desire to learn.
Whilst the children are taught a rigorous academic curriculum, its breadth and variety is never compromised.

Dan Jameson, Boys' Head

We enjoy working with an outstanding team of skilled and caring teachers and assistants
This dedicated team recognises and celebrates every child as an individual, enabling them to fulfil their potential.

Julia Adlard, Head of Early Years

Alongside this, we teach the importance of good manners and the need for kindness at all times. We believe in the value of establishing lifelong friendships. We have supportive parents and foster a partnership with them, which we believe to be crucial to achieving our aims for the children. We nurture a warm and lasting relationship with our parents.
This website contains a wealth of information but nothing is better than seeing the School and meeting our children for yourself. We look forward to showing you round our wonderful school.
