Headmaster Jon Glen said: ‘I am terrifically proud of this year's range of scholarships. As one of the few truly independent prep schools in the area we work hard to nurture each child's strengths and passions, and then find the senior school to suit the child. When children are happy they do well. At Terrington they do very well indeed.'
