Welcome to Spratton Hall

Nestled in 50 acres of beautiful, rolling Northamptonshire countryside, Spratton Hall is an exceptional independent preparatory day school for boys and girls aged 4 to 13 years.

As a truly independent stand-alone school, we are in the privileged position to be able to take your child on a unique educational journey that focuses on their talents and personality.  We are not tied to any other schools, and so our children move onto the school that is the right fit for them.  Indeed, we ‘prep’ our Year 8 children for 10 or more different schools each year.  Our children move on to many of the top independent senior schools including Rugby, Oakham, Uppingham and Oundle.

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 girls and boys flourish in an environment where politeness, courtesy and consideration for others is paramount.

In addition to the exceptional educational provision, our children also enjoy the best tuition in Sport, Art, Drama, Music and many co-curricular activities.  This ensures that, as The Week magazine Independent School Guide stated, we really are a ‘great school for all-rounders’.

We know that choosing the right school for your child is the most important decision you will make on their behalf. I would be delighted to meet you and give you a personal tour of Spratton Hall so that you can see for yourselves what an ‘extraordinary school’ we are.

I very much look forward to welcoming you.
