Caldicott School

2521.jpg

Caldicott is a day and boarding country prep school for boys aged 7 – 13 in south Buckinghamshire.  Situated in 40 acres of magnificent grounds we are just 15 miles from Heathrow Airport and 30 minutes from west London operating a daily return bus service from Chiswick, Brook Green, Notting Hill and the local area.  We pride ourselves on our warm community where our pupils are happy and feel valued.

Caldicott is a special place with a strong community spirit and the welfare and happiness of all our boys lies at the heart of everything we do.  Together with our strong and supportive parent body and our committed board of governors, we aim to foster confidence, perseverance, tolerance, and integrity.  We encourage teamwork, intellectual curiosity and a love of learning for its own sake in a school where creativity flourishes.

We have the reputation as one of the best prep schools in the UK with an excellent record in preparing boys for Scholarships and Common Entrance to top UK public schools including Eton, Harrow, Radley and Wellington.  We have a strong and dynamic staffroom of dedicated and inspirational teachers and professionals – highly qualified academic teachers, expert sports coaches and musicians and drama specialists.  As a result, we have high academic standards and expectations, an outstanding record in art, sport, music and drama scholarships, excellent pastoral provision and a wide range of extra-curricular activities for all boys to take part in.

Our sports fields and facilities are second-to-none and recent sporting successes are numerous, at national level, this includes the last winners of the Rosslyn Park National Schools Sevens Tournament Prep Competition (2015 and 2016), winners of the 2016 RNCF Cricket Shield U13 National Competition for Prep Schools and winners of the 2017 U13 IAPS Ski Championships.

Boarding is fun and an integral part of the school community.  Boys live and work together in a friendly, supportive environment, build life-long friendships and develop independence before they go on to their senior schools at 13+.

We endeavour to harness the best of the school’s traditions and values with a forward-looking approach and to create a supportive environment.  We ensure boys always aim to do their best, to be humble and modest in victory and gracious in defeat, to be givers rather than takers and to be proactive rather than sit back and watch.

Our aim is to broaden boys’ interests and develop their personal qualities so that Caldicotians leave fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.  Senior schools recommend us on our well-mannered, considerate, confident boys with high personal, moral and spiritual values who are striving to become their very best.

We welcome parents to tour the school on an individual basis during term time throughout the year. For more information please get in touch with our Registrar, Mrs Jan Kemp on 01753 649301 or registrar@caldicott.com.
