I am delighted to welcome you to Oliver House School, an independent school with a Catholic ethos for boys and girls aged 3-11. Oliver House is a school that values academics and qualifications and also believes that education should be so much more. Our mission is to nurture and develop the individual child in a caring, happy environment. Our ultimate aim is that our children achieve to their full potential and grow up to live happy and fulfilled lives. We are a school founded on a belief in a partnership with parents, helping them to raise their children to become young men and women of excellent character.
We are a non-selective school that offers a rigorous academic curriculum where pupils of all abilities reach their full potential. Underpinning this, our outstanding character development programme develops in our children good habits such as cheerfulness, sound judgement, resilience, generosity and responsibility. Our personalised tutorial system is tailored to each child with each tutor taking a direct interest in each child’s personal character development, regularly sharing this with parents.
Music and the arts play a central role in our curriculum. We offer a comprehensive sporting programme with weekly coaching sessions and fixtures against other local prep schools. All pupils from Reception to Year 6 enjoy a wide range of trips including our residential PGL trip in Year 5 and our cultural visit to Rome in Year 6. Children are encouraged to take an active role in our rich and varied co-curricular programme.
We are a school that celebrates each child’s unique gifts and talents and that promotes in them a desire to be the very best that they can be in all aspects of their school life. On any visit to Oliver House you will see for yourself that this is a happy school where children are respected and nurtured.
Please join us at our next Open Day, or speak to our Admissions Secretary to arrange a visit, where you can meet our pupils and see our wonderful, happy school in action. I would be delighted to meet with you and discuss the benefits of an Oliver House education and I look forward to welcoming you to the school in the future.
