Hoe Bridge School is set in a perfect location on the outskirts of Woking surrounded by 22 acres of beautiful grounds and is only 25 minutes from London. In the latest inspection, the School achieved a grade of 'excellent', something that both the girls & boys and staff are extremely proud of.
At the heart of Hoe Bridge stands the stunning 17th century mansion, Hoe Place. Around this mansion, the School has recently undertaken several major building projects to further enhance the facilities. The Pre-Prep department has been completely rebuilt to create more space and light for the younger children and the Nursery offers busy parents the option of five full days. Further projects in the Prep department will also create more space for the older girls and boys.
In the Pre-Prep department, the creative curriculum enables the children from Nursery to Year 2 to learn through play, adventure, discovery and experience. Transition to the Prep Department is seamless and as children mature they become increasingly independent learners in preparation for the move to some of the country's leading senior schools.
Alongside the academics sport, music, art and drama play a major part throughout the school and the girls and boys excel in many areas; end of year productions; sporting excellence achieving national success in netball and hockey, county success in cricket, football and hockey; individual musical success in national youth orchestras and choirs and a spectacular annual art exhibition. Scholarships in all these areas are won every year to a variety of schools across the country.
Senior pupils in Years 7 and 8 take part in regular extra-curricular activities and it is at this stage of their time at Hoe Bridge that they take on extra responsibility becoming prefects and role models to the younger children.
The atmosphere of every school is unique and we consider the strength and attraction of Hoe Bridge to lie in the atmosphere here. Standards and targets are realistic, though set as high as possible, the bright are challenged and the less able supported; we endeavour to instil confidence in all our children. Visitors are amazed how happy the children are, how determined they are to succeed and how much they care about each other.
The School has an extremely good reputation and is constantly striving to preserve the family atmosphere, improve results and explore all possibilities for enriching both the School and the lives of the children.
