Welcome from the Headmaster

Quainton Hall School

Established in Central Harrow at the end of the nineteenth century, Quainton Hall is a thriving IAPS co-educational Preparatory School dedicated to the education of boys and girls between the ages of two and a half and thirteen years.

At Quainton Hall, children enjoy a broad and inclusive education, firmly centred on the core values of respect, integrity, determination and humility. With an emphasis on achievement, we believe in setting high expectations, leading by example and creating a secure, positive and inspiring learning environment where our pupils can feel challenged and supported to aim high and develop their individual talents.  

Our 11+ and 13+ results are consistently impressive and many of our Leavers gain scholarships to the senior schools of their choice, as well as gaining results in the top 10% of school children across the country in national competitions such as the Townsend Warner History Prize.

We are fortunate enough to boast first rate facilities including a recently refurbished swimming pool and Art and Design Centre, astro turf, a new ICT suite and modern classrooms with interactive whiteboards. September 2016 saw the completion of our new Nursery and Reception building on Radnor Road which houses our youngest pupils within a setting where the effectiveness of the EYFS has been rated as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.

Quainton Hall is very much a family school where the children come first and where the staff operate an open door policy. Our pastoral care is of paramount importance to us and our approach is rooted in a strong sense of community based on the belief that happy children can achieve great things.

The children are encouraged to make the most of the many extra-curricular activities on offer and represent the School in a range of sports including, football, hockey, rugby, cricket, netball and rounders. Subject based trips and residential excursions, both in the UK and abroad further enhance and enrich the education of our pupils, as does the long list of visiting speakers, theatre groups and authors we welcome to the School each year.

Music and Drama also play a major part in the life of the School and the majority of the children learn at least one musical instrument and take part in our annual School Production. We have a range of highly successful musical groups and choirs who perform in public all over the country.

Close partnership with our parents and families is key to the success of our school and, whilst this website is able to offer you a flavour of life here at Quainton Hall, I would strongly encourage you to come and visit us to fully appreciate all that our school has to offer.

We very much look forward to welcoming you.
