“The curriculum, teaching and learning, pupil progress, behaviour, pastoral care at OVS is excellent.” ISI Inspection Report 2015
Welcome to the Old Vicarage School, an “OUTSTANDING/EXCELLENT” independent Nursery, Pre-Prep and Preparatory school for girls and boys aged 3 to 13 years.
Established in 1933 the school was acquired by the Adshead family in September 2007 and has grown from strength to strength under their stewardship. In February 2015 the Independent School’s Inspectorate found OVS “EXCELLENT” in every category. Please click on our report button to read the report in full.
This site is designed to give an insight into the wonderful education on offer at the Old Vicarage School. As you glance at the different aspects of this site, I hope you will see what we can offer your child – an education tailored to their individual needs in a warm, family and nurturing environment.
We want our children to develop a life-long love of learning, to be happy, confident and ‘glass half full’ in character. We achieve this through love, care and the personal attention we offer them in our family run school.
Mrs Kerry Wise, Head of School
