Standing in the rural beauty of the Howardian Hills just north of York, Terrington Hall is a refreshingly carefree, unpressurised environment for a child’s formative educational years of 3 to 13.
I am proud of our small school, of its unique family community and of the level of care extended to each child who passes through its doors. At home with our traditions and embracing the best of current educational practice, we carry the interests of each child at the heart of all that we do.
This is evident in our excellent academic provision which prepares each child for the senior school of their choice.
Being untied to any senior school, Terrington prepares its pupils for entry to a wide range of schools both locally and nationally, day and boarding. Each senior school is chosen with the best interests of the child in mind. This is something we do very well.
Equally, we place proper emphasis on delivering a full programme of sport, music, art and drama within and outside the curriculum.
I firmly believe that the opportunities we offer outside of the classroom are key to our pupils’ futures. It is in these activities that self-esteem takes root and flourishes. As much as any set of exam grades, it is this emotional well-being which shapes our children, yours and mine, and defines what they make of their potential both now and in the future. Through our school structure, weekly staff meetings and pastoral care we ensure that no-one slips unnoticed through the net.
When our leavers return to see us, it is heartwarming to hear of the brightness of their futures, wherever they have taken them, of the friends they have carried with them and of the affection in which they hold their prep school days.
For, above all else, this is a happy school in which our pupils achieve because they have the courage and confidence to take up the many opportunities offered to them during their time at Terrington Hall.
It is a school of which I am intensely proud to call myself Headmaster.
