Our Unique Offering

Could the Dame Catherine Harpur’s School be the school for you?

We offer a unique small-scale environment offering affordable education with a child centred and stress-free approach. Our emphasis is upon exploration as well as academic excellence.

Our core provision is for children who are with us 5 days a week. There are many reasons you might choose Dame Catherine’s for full-time education for your child. Here are just some of the questions you might ask yourself as parents or carers.

Do you wish for a slightly different approach for your children in their initial

years of education?  

Do you want your child to have a greater opportunity to be outside in the fresh air?

Are you looking for an alternative to a curriculum driven by SATs testing?

Do you need more flexibility as a family to best meet the needs of your child?

Have you experienced education systems in other countries which leads you to look for something a little different from mainstream education in the UK?

Please get in touch with Jane Dawn in our office to and pay us a visit so you can see for yourself what we have to offer.
