Head PhotoHazlegrove is a leading Independent boarding and day Preparatory School in the South West of England for 350 boys and girls aged 2 1/2 - 13. The School is fortunate to have outstanding facilities and is set within 200 acres of parkland in Somerset with direct access to the A303. A purpose-built, self-contained pre-prep and nursery gives pupils the ideal start to their school careers.

We are a school that delights in children being children, we encourage individuality and value determination, perseverance and passion.

In today's rapidly changing and demanding world it is important that children, from an early age, should have a breadth of opportunity to develop their abilities and potential while enjoying the benefit of a caring, structured and secure environment.

We believe that just such a blend of opportunity and challenge exists at Hazlegrove. Children are encouraged to seek high standards in academic, creative, sporting and the many other areas of school life. At the same time we think of ourselves as a family school and regard the happiness of the individual boy and girl, at whatever level of achievement, as of vital importance to their personal progress. Hazlegrove offers children more than an education; it offers them a childhood. Visitors describing their first impressions of the school nearly always comment on how happy and friendly Hazlegrove children appear to be.

Christian values underpin all aspects of school life. Recognition is given to the importance of co-operation between home and school. We believe that school should be an extension and reflection of a caring home, and a preparation for later life in which all must live and work together. Our attitude to discipline also follows from this need for blend and balance. Firm rules exist, but emphasis is also placed on developing personal responsibility and self-discipline as necessary requirements within a community which values honesty, integrity and initiative.

The school has retained all that is best from the past, but at the same time, is ready to respond to contemporary educational initiatives and to explore new technologies. Hazlegrove has a clear vision and an exciting future.

We invite you to visit us, preferably during term time, to meet staff and pupils and to see this unique school for yourself. Appointments can be made through the office, or just drop in if you are passing. I can assure you that you will receive a warm welcome.
