Word From The Head

Head Photo

Ralph Dalton

We are a small independent school for children aged three-and-a-half to eleven where every child is seen, known and heard.

We have three aims: to ensure each child reaches their full academic potential; to ensure they can do the right thing, at the right time, in the right way and for the right reasons; and, to ensure they leave us full of confidence and inspired to seek and seize all the opportunities secondary education has to offer.

For over 80 years we have built a reputation for academic excellence and for personal pastoral care in the image of the school’s early Head, Mrs Mathison, who asked simply, ‘if this was my child what would I want for them?’

These aims were born out in our last inspection report with the inspection team acknowledging that ‘Pupils feel extremely well-prepared for the next stages in their education’ and with our pastoral care graded as excellent.

Generally after 8 years our pupils move on to Bancroft’s, Brentwood, Chigwell, City of London, Forest, and St. Edmunds College where they continue their personal journey of growth and self-actualization.

If you would like to get a feel for the school, please contact the school office to arrange an informal visit when I’d be delighted to show you around.

We look forward to showing you around.
Ralph Dalton – Headteacher

        Anna & Alex Diakodimitris

        We absolutely love Snaresbrook and our Child has been very happy here! We have to thank you, the school and all the teachers for their care and attention. We will all miss everyone at the school!  

        Year 6 Parent

        We would like to thank you and all your staff, teaching and non-teaching, for providing an environment in which our child has developed and thrived over eight years.  

        Mr & Mrs Imran

        If we haven’t said this before, let me reiterate by saying that all staff including yourself, Mrs Reading etc have been so proactive and informative, that it hasn’t really felt like the pandemic has defeated any of us.  

        Nick & Louise Wheeler

        We just wanted to write a quick message to thank you for the phenomenal end of term Christmas staging you put in place outside of the school, complete with snow, trees, reindeer and Father Christmas! We were quite taken aback by the amount of effort that the school made.  


        In observation inspectors witnessed…consideration, sensitivity and mutual respect between staff and pupils, which epitomise the success of the school’s aim to develop sensitivity and self-discipline within a Christian environment.
