One of the most precious gifts you can give your child is a good education. What better way is there of knowing that your child is getting a good start in life than the reassurance that they are learning in a school who’s priorities are to ensure that your child is safe, happy and able to flourish? This is what Gad’s Hill School offers.
Our school is a wonderfully happy, vibrant and successful community. Childhood is celebrated every day and all of our children learn not only to develop skills, both in and outside the classroom, but also to achieve.
Set in the former Georgian home of world-renowned author Charles Dickens, overlooking the countryside, the school enjoys a superb setting for the nurturing of young minds and development and growth of our pupils. Our facilities, challenging academic curriculum and wide range of activities, trips and visits encourage all pupils to develop their talents to the full.
Academically, Gad’s enjoys the reputation of receiving excellent GCSE results year on year, with the school being named as the country’s top independent school early in 2011 by the BBC, The Times and in the Government’s School League Tables, as well as eighth best school overall when including state schools.
We believe our success is largely down to the fact that we are a small school. We aim to restrict our class sizes to 20 children, therefore our pupils benefit by learning in a friendlier more comfortable environment and are taught by teachers who know each child as an individual and can tailor their learning accordingly.
We are rightly proud of our wonderful heritage and this gives us confidence to encompass all that the modern world has to offer. Good manners, kindness, self-respect and a sense of community are strongly supported by a contemporary curriculum, technological resources and the very best of teaching methods.
You will be able to browse our website finding out more about the values and qualities of Gad’s Hill School; a caring, compassionate and self-disciplined environment which encourages boys and girls to give their best. There is, however, nothing like a visit and, on behalf of our children and staff, I would like to extend to you a personal invitation to come and see us. You will not be disappointed.
