Perrott Hill

Perrott Hill is a co-educational, day and boarding preparatory school situated in beautiful rural surroundings four miles from Crewkerne in South Somerset. The original 19th century house is Grade II listed and forms the centre of the school, housing the Hoskyns Library, Grundy Hall, School Office, Marketing and Admissions Office, Headmaster’s Study, Surgery and two classrooms.

It is also home to the girls’ and boys’ dorms and common rooms. The majority of teaching takes place in purpose built classrooms to the west. The Pre-Prep sits securely within the converted stables of the main house and surrounds a soft play courtyard and covered outdoor play area. There are a multitude of facilities available, including a sports hall, theatre, forest school, climbing frame, allweather surface and beautiful grounds and gardens. The emphasis is very much on an inclusive school for children aged 3-13.

The school site, which covers 28 acres, has been carefully developed over the past few years. As well as the usual sports pitches, there is an all-weather pitch, a large sports hall with changing rooms, a heated outdoor pool and a 220-capacity theatre. In 2016, a new eco-build Music
School was opened, followed by a new science suite and Tinker Lab. In recent years, the school buildings have been extensively refurbished in order to further develop the academic accommodation, and there are several acres of woodland which provide a home for our fully-equipped forest school.

There’s no doubt that the school site helps to instil a very special sense of identity within the community, and the staff, parent and pupil bodies are welcoming, enthusiastic and full of a natural ease and warmth; the school holds the retention of a true family ethos dear. There are girls’
and boys’ boarding houses in the main house, with five sets of staff and families living onsite, as well as three graduate residential assistants. Alongside this is a desire to achieve the very best and, as such, the school has an excellent record of academic and scholarship success. In
short, Perrott Hill combines extremely high standards of academic and pastoral care to encourage and stretch children according to their individual needs and strengths.
