Dame Catherine Harpur's School and Nursery

The family school where children flourish.

We are a small independent school and nursery offering affordable education with a child-centred and stress-free approach. We believe that every child should have a positive learning experience and so encourage parents to work in partnership with us to develop what works best for them – whether that’s by taking advantage of our unique offer of part time attendance models (flexi-schooling or home-school sessions) or by contributing to the engaging, creative curriculum full-time in school. The school ethos extends to our nursery setting providing a safe and nourishing early years environment.

We have the freedom to:

  • Work with each child’s experiences and interests to build confidence and inspire.
  • Recognise that the little things make a big difference.
  • Value children for who they are.
