Where children flourish

Welcome to Pitsford

Pitsford School is a rare environment: deliberately small, we are dedicated to supporting children as individuals. At this unique independent school in Northamptonshire, every child is known and cared for and their talents and interests are identified, developed and cherished.

Set in 30 beautiful acres in the lovely village of Pitsford, our state-of-the-art buildings are surrounded by green open space, creating a perfect and bucolic environment to nourish hungry minds and engage ambitious students.

Our curriculum draws on the best Grammar school traditions, building upon them with the most valuable new developments in education. Classes are kept deliberately small to maximise the teacher time received by each and every one of our students.

Our philosophy of education is relational, personal and bespoke. Despite being a small independent school we offer a very wide range of subjects (including three separate sciences, three Modern Foreign Languages and outstanding Art and Music provision). Our results are amongst the best in the county.

Pitsford School, like life, must be experienced. Please arrange to come and see us and learn more.

Pitsford is proud of our proactive approach to wellbeing, resilience and mental health.

A few years ago we created 'The Station', which is a wellness hub in the centre of the school where our pastoral leads are always available and all children are welcomed, if they need help or just want to come in and have a chat or play a game.

And it confirmed the school and Headmaster's deep love of Paddington Bear!

Half-term has come, but the school is not asleep. The summer brings with it beautiful days, fertile and fecund greenery and, unfortunately for our grounds staff, the need to be mowing and cutting and maintaining. A very busy week will be had by all to make sure we are ship-shape for June and July.

“Pupils at all stages of the school have excellent attitudes to learning. They are cooperative, eager to succeed and they listen to and support one another in class.”

“Pupils responding to the pre-inspection questionnaire overwhelmingly endorsed the statement ‘I like being at this school’.”

“Throughout the school, members of staff provide excellent support and guidance. Small class sizes in the junior school, and small tutor groups in the senior school, enable each pupil to be recognised as an individual by staff.”
