Set in 30 acres of beautiful grounds, Woodcote House School has been owned and run by my family for 90 years and I am very proud to be the 4th member of the Paterson family to head the school and take it into a new era.

Born and educated at Woodcote, I returned with my own young family over 30 years ago, teaching mathematics and subsequently taking on the role of Deputy Headmaster. With the benefit of that experience and commitment, I will ensure that your boys thrive in a happy, stable and nurturing environment, with particular emphasis placed on the key values of hard work, good manners, tolerance and mutual respect.

Together with a dedicated and experienced staff, a stimulating and flexible curriculum and small class sizes, we enable boys to reach their full academic potential. The boys are also afforded a wealth of extra-curricular opportunities, with particular attention paid to sport, music, drama and art. I believe that Woodcote offers a unique education, laying the vital foundations to prepare the boys for the challenges that lie ahead, and giving them the necessary skills, confidence and enthusiasm with which to succeed.

I look forward to meeting you.

“Sending our son to Woodcote House was one of the best decisions we made. It is a school that really understands how to teach boys brilliantly, both in and out of the classroom. It is a school that turns boys in to delightful young men ready for whatever their next step in education will be. We...
