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.

Our Junior Prizegiving and Senior School Speech Day are an opportunity, at the end of the academic year to celebrate the efforts and achievements of all of the pupils in the School.

During the proceedings our School Officers took part in the Prefect Handover ceremony when gowns and responsibilities are passed on.

Congratulations to our students who received recognition at Speech Day and Prizegiving yesterday. Some received cups and prizes, but regardless of who was on the stage, we are proud of all of you and of all of the individual and team successes throughout the year.

This is what makes us such a remarkable community.

“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.”
