Headmaster's welcome

IMG_0679Bilton Grange is a magical place: a place of learning, a source of lifelong memories and above all somewhere children want to be.

Whether you are looking to board, or join us as a day pupil, our unique Pugin architecture, our hundred acres of woodland and open space and our facilities are the perfect theatre of dreams for children to be enthusiastic, energised and inquisitive learners, and in amongst all the fun and bustle of life in a rural prep school, serious work also gets done. We prepare our children gradually and carefully for each step along their learning journey which for nearly all of them will be the Common Entrance or Scholarship exams to public schools or the Warwickshire 11+ for a few. Our recent record of scholarship success speaks both for the quality of teaching and learning but also the determination and commitment of our pupils and the support of our parents: all three sides of this triangle are necessary to get this high level of success. However at this age it’s not all about exams: good learning habits, an attention to detail, the ability to work independently and collaboratively are some of the most vital skills we can pass on to the children in our care.

Some schools are, well, schools. Bilton Grange is more than this, in that it is a real and vibrant community. Parents pop in and out, walking their dogs around the grounds, enjoying a Saturday morning bacon sandwich or afternoon tea; parents support our sports matches in large numbers, with drama and music performances equally well supported and anticipated.

So then, you have a chance to look around our school virtually and at your leisure. What next? If you want the very best start for your child which can open many doors and shuts none, then you must come and look around the school for real. A happy school with happy children awaits you, and as a parent with two children at the school myself, I promise that in everything we do for our children, we want nothing but the best, just like you do.
