Glebe House is a small but thriving school, constantly striving to provide the best education, care and facilities for all of its pupils. The classes are small and of single age groups, and every pupil is appropriately challenged according to their individual needs and abilities. Pupils in the prep school are taught by specialist subject teachers who inspire and enthuse children with their depth of knowledge.
Whilst our academic expectations are high, music, art, drama and sport are also considered a valuable part of our pupils’ education. An extensive and imaginative range of extra-curricular activities further enhances the children’s experience in school and the school benefits from much of what is normally only offered at a full boarding school. We also make full use of our unique surroundings with the coast and our woodland school area both playing a significant part in the children’s education.
Our school minibuses run various routes morning and evening (pick-up and drop-off points being negotiable, according to need) and flexible boarding is available for children from year three upwards. We also offer wraparound care to include an extended day supporting busy working parents. With so much on offer, we truly believe that Glebe House School is the perfect setting for children to learn and thrive whilst still enjoying their childhood in a genuinely nurturing, caring, family environment.
The boys’ boarding house is run by our head of science and sport. He and his young family live on site which makes the boarding a very homely experience. The girls’ boarding house is run by our registrar, whose four children are all past pupils. She and our two gap year students enjoy their evenings with the girls, and boarding is always in high demand. Boarding is flexible from Monday – Thursday nights and many children use this as a stepping stone to full boarding when they move on to their senior schools at 13 years.
We would be delighted to tour your family to enable you to experience first-hand what a prospectus alone cannot show and what many people refer to simply as the ‘Spirit of Glebe’. Contact the registrar, Tamzine Fraulo, via the contact form or call 01485 532809 ext 4 to arrange a visit.
