Word From The Head

Head Photo

Gavin Taylor

It is my honour to lead such a splendid school, where everything we do is geared to equipping our boys for a rich and fulsome life. I’m proud that we’re purposefully small, which allows our boys to achieve excellent results alongside an enthusiasm for life.

I have been a member of staff here since 2008 and have held a range of roles from Form Teacher to Head of Boarding and from Head of Pastoral to Deputy Head, the latter a position I held for six years. It is a privilege to be part of such a vibrant and supportive school community that enables each of our pupils to explore their potential and develop into the best that they can be.

I invite you warmly to visit us so that you can see what a happy and thriving cohort of boys we are lucky enough to lead.

School Reviews

Parent Testimonial

My sons do–and will always–hold Lockers Park close to their hearts. As parents, we feel, we have made the greatest decision of our lives sending our children there.  

Tatler Schools Guide

This highly regarded boys’ prep strikes the perfect balance between tradition and innovation.  

Good Schools Guide

Everything about the school is focused on bringing out the best in boys – from the 40-minute morning break where they can tear around fields and woodlands with just enough time for a bit of den-building, to the pristine well-structured classrooms.  

Parent Testimonial

The school gives a well-rounded education that allows time for extra-curricular pursuits – both formal (music, art, drama, sport) and informal (time in the shrubs!).
