Mowden Hall is a country preparatory school with a strong family ethos, educating boys and girls from ages 3 to 13. Class sizes are small, with one or two classes per year group – and we take great care to both encourage and stretch children based upon their individual needs and strengths.
Mowden Hall combines extremely high standards of academic rigour and pastoral care. The school has an outstanding record of scholarship success. Over a quarter of our Year 8 children have been awarded scholarships to Senior Schools for academic, artistic, sporting, dramatic, musical, and all-round ability, over the last 6 years.
Against a background of traditional values, we have the time and space to ensure that every child achieves their very best. Pupils are given the individual attention necessary to ensure that they flourish, whether it be: in the classroom; on the sports fields; in the music school; in the art department; during the vast array of activities on offer. We also invest time in teaching manners and the common courtesies which are so often overlooked in the rush of modern-day life.
In Year 4, pupils join the rest of the Prep School in attending school on Saturday mornings from which the children benefit in a myriad of ways; whether it be the space this creates over the course of a week to explore topics and interests to the pressure that this removes from having to fit everything in from Monday to Friday.
