Independent Education with a Catholic Ethos for Boys and Girls 3-11


Welcome to Oliver House School, an independent school with a Catholic ethos for boys and girls aged 3-11. Oliver House is a school that recognises the unique character and talents of each individual child and encourages them to become the best that they can be. The outstanding teaching of the curriculum is complemented by a personal character development programme that is delivered through our tailored tutor system. Not only learning set academic skills, our children are encouraged to think creatively and act with initiative and responsibility. This is done by providing a broad range of activities throughout the school year and creating opportunities for boys and girls to develop the important life skills they will need to be happy and successful adults. We embrace Catholic principles as our guide to school life. Key to our success, is a partnership with parents, where the school encourages close links with those who are most important to every child – teachers and parents.
If you seek a school that has a complete, rounded education at its heart, it would be my pleasure to give you a personal tour around Oliver House.

School Prospectus

Qualifications are important but education is about so much more.
Our mission is to nurture and develop the individual child so they may grow to live fulfilled and happy lives. Good character and moral integrity have a positive impact on academic performance so character education underpins our academic programme.


Character is what we make of ourselves and the unique Character Development programme at Oliver House School gives pupils the tools to fulfil their true potential and to become the best possible version of themselves.
The essence of character education at Oliver House lies in equipping pupils with the freedom to make the right choices for the right reasons. This ultimately leads to a sense of purpose and deep personal fulfilment. Lessons in character education help pupils to gain an understanding of their emotions and how they can learn to master them. Our programme fosters the development and study of virtues such as sincerity, hard work, order, cheerfulness, generosity and service to others.
