We are an independent preparatory, co-educational day school for primary aged children up to 11 years. 

Buckholme Towers has changed the future prospects of my children.
Yell.com Parent review

"With an average of 14 pupils in each class, staffing ratios are high, so every child is known individually and no child ‘slips through the net.’ Our experienced teaching staff work tirelessly and imaginatively to realise the strengths and talents of every individual. Traditional values, such as courtesy and respect, are at the heart of everything the school does. 

We aim to ensure that every child not only develops excellent core skills, but leaves the school as a happy, confident, curious, compassionate individual who has a real love of learning and thirst for knowledge.  A very high percentage of the children achieve places at local Grammar Schools."  Ruth Darvill, Head of School

Now ENROLLING for reception September 2018
