Head’s Welcome

We know that choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions that a parent can make. Parents place their trust in us when they place their child in our care and we then have the privilege to see that child thrive and grow. A parent’s priority is the happiness, well being and achievement of their child and that is also our priority here at Collingwood School.

Collingwood is a happy, vibrant and truly nurturing school. The atmosphere here is one in which our children feel secure, supported and valued. It is a place where our boys and girls are also challenged to be the best that they can possibly be. Beyond the high academic expectations, our pupils are inspired to develop their talents in arts, music and sports. We offer a broad education, within small classes, which caters for children from Nursery to age 11 of all abilities, and allows us to tailor the experience to suit each child’s individual needs and celebrate each child’s success.

Care and consideration for each other and for the world in which we live is central to our ethos. The traditional values of courtesy and good manners also underpin our whole philosophy as we prepare our children for their future in an ever-changing world. We aim for all pupils to become responsible, independent and resilient young citizens. We are proud of every one of our boys and girls and they are proud to be part of our school.

It is not possible to convey in these few words what a special place Collingwood School is and, for that reason, I strongly encourage you to come and visit and experience it for yourself; I would be delighted to meet you and show you around.
