We are an independent preparatory, co-educational day school for primary aged children of 4 to 11 years. 

Our school nestles in the heart of Ashley Cross, Lower Parkstone, Poole but also draws pupils from the Purbecks and across Bournemouth. It offers a broad and varied curriculum while managing to achieve a balance, both educationally and pastorally, between the traditional and the progressive.

We currently have a limited number of places available for children who are due to transfer to Reception in September 2018. 

Parents who are interested in reserving a place for their child should book a tour with Mrs Ruth Darvill, our Head of School, before registering.
