Welcome to the Old Vicarage School, an independent preparatory school for girls and boys aged 3 to 13 years.

In February 2015 the Independent School’s Inspectorate found OVSEXCELLENT” in every category. Please click on our report button to read the report in full. 

This site is designed to give an insight into the wonderful education on offer at the Old Vicarage School. As you glance at the different aspects of this site, I hope you will see what we can offer your child – an education tailored to their individual needs in a warm, family and nurturing environment. This can be seen from our curriculum and the system of individual targets. It goes way beyond the normal differentiation one would expect from a school.

Childhood is not a rehearsal. At the Old Vicarage School we create engaging, memorable and enriching experiences for the children throughout their preparatory school education. We want our children to develop a life-long love of learning, to be happy, confident and ‘glass half full’ in character. We achieve this through love, care and the personal attention we offer them in our family run school.
