Welcome to Spratton Hall
Situated in 50 beautiful acres of rolling Northamptonshire countryside, Spratton Hall is an independent preparatory day school for boys and girls aged 4 to 13 years.
In the words of the Good Schools Guide: Spratton Hall is an ‘extraordinary school’. I hope you can sense this from our website, and sense the learning, happiness and energy that buzzes through the school – but don’t just take my word for it; do come and see for yourselves, come and see Spratton as it is, full of happy, animated, articulate, polite boys and girls.
Children at Spratton develop an excellent approach to academic work, achieving high standards throughout. They also acquire a determination to enjoy every opportunity and learn to give of their very best in all that they do. Our boys and girls flourish in an environment where politeness, courtesy and consideration for others is paramount. Above all, they will be thoroughly good people to know with values that they will take with them into their chosen senior school.
Spratton Hall feeds many of the top independent senior schools, schools that tell us they want Spratton pupils as they know they can look forward to kind, respectful children, fully prepared for senior school life.
Choosing the right school for your child is the most important decision you will make on their behalf. You will be entrusting into our care your most treasured possession. Do please come and visit us and see for yourselves our extraordinary school where your children will achieve and thrive in all that they do.

I very much look forward to welcoming you.
