Headmaster’s Welcome Simon Kibler

Welcome to Terrington Hall School. We are an Independent, Co-education, day and boarding School for children aged 3-13, in the Heart of the Howardian Hills, North Yorkshire.

Primarily a day school with the option of flexible and weekly boarding, Terrington Hall provides an excellent all-round education for boys and girls aged 3-13. We blend forward-thinking learning with a traditional prep school ethos. Our emphasis is on developing happy, well-mannered individuals with the self-belief and resilience to pursue their talents and interests, wherever they may lie.

The high level of individual care and attention extended to every child is supported by small class sizes, an excellent staff/pupil ratio, specialist teaching staff and strong pastoral care. Terrington Hall provides a nurturing yet purposeful environment, in which children develop a lifelong love of learning which they carry with them throughout their school days and beyond.
