Davenies is at the heart of Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire, providing a broad and stimulating education for over 320 boys between the ages of four and thirteen. Our principal aim is to encourage the pursuit of excellence and the development of the whole person in a caring, supportive environment. We do this by adopting a thorough, expansive and imaginative approach to all aspects of school life and by instilling in the boys a sense of curiosity and confidence, so that they can drive their own learning and make the most of their unique abilities.
At Davenies, we place particular emphasis on developing caring children who do not merely put themselves first, but who know how to behave appropriately and considerately. Ultimately, we recognise that we are not only preparing the boys for successful entry to senior schools, but also for life outside and beyond the classroom. Many boys leave Davenies at the end of Year 8 after completing a unique two year leadership and team-building programme and sitting either Common Entrance or Scholarship exams for entry to senior independent schools; others boys will sit the 11+ for the local Grammar Schools.
Education should be exciting and Davenies is an exciting school. The boys find success in many areas, both on the sports field and in the classroom. The facilities are excellent and comprise modern classrooms, a state of the art sports centre with swimming pool, ICT suite, music block and games fields, and the class sizes are small.
