Perrott Hill is a thriving countryside preparatory school situated in beautiful grounds upon the Somerset-Dorset border. The phrase ‘time and space for a full education’ is at the very heart of all that happens at the school. We provide a unique family atmosphere in which all children can develop a sense of self belief and confidence. Against a background of traditional values, every single child is encouraged to achieve their very best, be it in the classroom, on the games field or throughout the wide variety of activities we have to offer.
Perrott Hill is a thriving country preparatory school situated in beautiful grounds amongst the rolling Somerset countryside. Class sizes are small - we have an average of twelve to a class in the Prep School, with two classes in most years, and we take great care to both encourage and stretch children based upon their individual needs and strengths. Perrott Hill combines extremely high standards of academic and pastoral care. In the last 3 years the 86 children leaving school at the end of year 8 have secured 41 awards to senior schools and all children were offered a place at the school of their choice. Scholarships have been awarded for academic, artistic, sporting, dramatic, musical, equine and all-round ability. The Montessori nursery and pre-prep are housed within the converted stable courtyard next to the main school buildings, which gives the younger children their own safe, secure environment whilst allowing them to take advantage of the grounds and facilities of the preparatory school. An extremely dedicated staff ensure that the highest standards of academic and pastoral care are provided for each and every pupil. Therefore, every child is given the opportunity to develop and thrive as an individual before they move on to life at their senior school.
