The ethos of our school is very simple - Happy children thrive. Our attention is not only on providing academic excellence but in delivering excellence in pastoral care too.

Established in 1888 with a focus on academic achievement, Horris Hill has become known as one of the top preparatory schools in the world. For over 130 years, over 60% of all pupils have progressed through the school to secure coveted places at Winchester, Harrow, Eton and Radley. In addition, for those whose strengths are more creative or sporting, Horris Hill continues to get children scholarships into the right schools for them across the UK and globally. Horris Hill is set to open its doors to girls from September 2022, as a new chapter for the school begins. We are looking forward to welcoming girls to the school, into Nursery and Reception, and we’re confident that our new girls will go on to be as successful as our boys have been for over 130 years.

The school is owned by Forfar Education, founded by a former Queen’s Royal Hussar, John Forsyth. We fully recognise the support that all our current armed forces and veterans require, not just those with CEA. For that reason, we offer the largest bursaries in the country to all serving forces personnel and veterans. In recognition of our debt to those who serve the UK in its Armed Forces, we have specific bursary support for families, both of currently serving personnel and veterans. This is a limited offer and available to families new to Horris Hill School.

Boarders (without CEA) receive a 65% bursary and day pupils, from Reception, a 40% bursary.
