St. Margaret’s is a happy, co-ed, independent school for children aged 2 to 11

When you read any information about an Independent school you would expect to see the words ‘Unique’ ‘Small Class Sizes’ ‘Bringing the best out in each child’ ‘Excellent Academic Results’ and so forth.  St. Margaret’s offers all of those, but you would expect that from any good Preparatory School. So what makes us different? Why would we encourage you to put your trust in our school?

Parents who send their children to St Margaret’s know they can trust us to make education fun and stimulating. We’ve been established since 1946 so they know our reputation for developing exceptionally well-rounded pupils with a love of learning.

They know our academic results speak for themselves, with our excellence in scholarships, including sport and the arts, especially music. We ensure that every child reaches age 11 well prepared to join the senior school that is just right for them, but what makes St Margaret’s so special for parents is the warm and nurturing heart at its core, with every child valued and treated as an individual to bring out the very best in them.

Quite simply we are a family, with traditional caring family values.

You’ll feel it as soon as you see the school in its beautiful parkland setting and step inside the warm and welcoming entrance; you’ll feel it when you see our dedicated team helping every child to flourish, celebrating their achievements and recognising their strengths; most of all you’ll feel it when you meet the children themselves – delightful, happy, thriving and full of life.

They are our greatest achievement and we are so proud to be a part of their lives.

We would love to welcome you to visit us, either on one of our open mornings, or on a private tour, and to show you just why we are so proud of our school.
