Head PhotoHazlegrove is a leading boarding and day prep school in the South West of England for 350 boys and girls aged 2 1/2 - 13. Set within 200 acres of parkland in Somerset, we are fortunate to have outstanding facilities. Our purpose-built, self-contained pre-prep and nursery gives pupils the ideal start to their school life. We are a school that delights in children being children, we encourage individuality and value determination, perseverance and passion.

Exciting times lie ahead for Hazlegrove in 2017 as we welcome our new Headmaster, Mark White, who joins us with his wife Serena from the Dragon School in September. He will inherit a school where the provision for pupils and the strength and quality of the staff is better than it has ever been.

Change has already been afoot. Recent high profile appointments in DT, Art and Music complement the very strong core of academic staff and the curriculum has seen significant changes including the introduction of Food Technology and Digital Design and Realisation.

"Incorporating Food Technology into the curriculum is a direct response to the significant and often unwelcome changes we are seeing in the food industry and the negative impact that this is having on individuals and society" says retiring Headmaster Richard Fenwick. "It is imperative that our pupils leave us with a clear understanding about the importance of food and a healthy diet. They need to be able to make well-informed choices, as well as being able to prepare and cook food for themselves."

"The new curriculum also recognises the huge impact that technology is having in our manufacturing industry and will give pupils a clear insight into key contemporary processes. A computer-aided design facility equipped with digital printer, 2-D engraver and laser cutter are complemented by equipment for working with thermoplastics and sewing machines.

Hazlegrove has an outstanding reputation for producing well-rounded pupils who are well versed in traditional qualities such as courtesy, good manners and consideration for others. Whilst never letting go of these vital and life defining skills, it is important that we look ahead, preparing our children for an increasingly technological and challenging world."

We invite you to come and meet us at our of our Open Mornings or by appointment via the office, or just drop in if you are passing. We can assure you that you will receive a warm welcome.
