Oliver House School is ranked in the Sunday Times Top 100 Preparatory Schools and is a member of the Independent Association of Prep Schools and NACE, the National Association for Able Children in Education. We are delighted to share the findings of the ISI Reports in this section.
Published November 2016
Oliver House School is delighted to announce it has been ranked in the Sunday Times Top 100 Preparatory Schools list, published in November 2016. The school is now ranked in 69th place nationally, and this represents a jump of 20 places since it was first included in the list. This is a fantastic achievement and a true reflection of the dedication, hard work and character of all staff, pupils and parents at Oliver House.
The school is focussed on the education and progress of each individual child, and information is shared and discussed with parents regularly. The Sunday Times list is a very practical way for parents and teachers alike to understand how the school is doing as a whole.
“These results are a testament to the dedication of the Acting Headmaster, Mr Farrell, and the staff, parents and pupils of the school. We continue to strive to give the children the best personalised and rigorous education, all within a Catholic ethos and a climate of trust, love and respect.”
Ella Leonard Chairman PACT Educational Trust
Oliver House pupils are “very happy” and “feel a valued part of this harmonious and flourishing school community.” According to the report the pupils’ conduct is “exemplary” and the school’s emphasis on the management of behaviour through the development of social skills was commended. In addition, the school’s close partnership with parents was defined as “highly successful” and this was seen to foster a positive atmosphere.
Oliver House’s Headteacher commented, “we are delighted that the findings of the ISI demonstrate the enormous progress across the board we have made over the last few years. We are particularly proud of the report’s clear recognition of our character development programme which underpins the school’s success and also of the outstanding accreditation of our Early Years Foundation Stage on all levels.
The Chairman of Governors, Ella Leonard commented, “On behalf of the whole Board I would like to express our delight at this formal recognition of the quality of education provided by Oliver House. I am particularly encouraged that the inspectors have highlighted that the school is extremely successful at achieving so many of our core aims and particularly at preparing pupils for the next stage of their lives.”
