About Glebe House

Giving children the very best start

Welcome to Glebe House School, where we strive to be everything a school should be. Our mission is simple: to prioritize each child’s individuality and nurture their unique strengths. With small class sizes, we ensure personalised attention and create an environment where every student can flourish.

We create an environment where students can truly grow and thrive, with the focus on their development and learning. Not bound by the National curriculum, our teachers are empowered to provide an engaging and meaningful educational experience for every student.

The School

Our ethos revolves around the growth, happiness, and safety of our students. From their early years in the Pre-Prep program to their remarkable achievements at 13+, where our eagles take flight to prestigious senior schools, we foster an environment that nurtures potential and unlocks possibilities.

But Glebe House School is more than just a place of education—it’s a vibrant community and an extended family. Our highly qualified teachers, dedicated nursery staff, and supportive professionals work collaboratively to provide the best education possible for every child.
