Perrott Hill is an independent day and boarding prep school in Somerset offering excellence in private education for girls and boys aged 3-13. Our pupils come from all over the South West, including Somerset, Devon and Dorset, as well as from London - and we are proud to welcome a small number of international pupils each year. We believe our stunningly beautiful 28-acre setting on the Somerset/Dorset border, together with our distinctive family ethos, allows children to stay younger for longer.

We provide an outstanding all-round education and are proud of our consistently impressive results at Common Entrance as well as our enviable scholarship record. We take the business of preparation for senior schools very seriously and all of our children move on to some of the country's leading senior schools, locally and nationally.

But whilst academic rigour is crucial, it is only part of the story. Our aim is to develop the whole person: physically, spiritually and emotionally as well as intellectually. We provide a rich tapestry of opportunities along the way; allowing children to experience success and fulfilment through a huge array of subjects and activities. Our parent body has a wonderful diversity, including as it does authors, artists, farmers, hoteliers, chefs, pilots, commuters to the City and many things in between. From this diversity comes a great benefit with regards to the pupils’ education: the ability to see 'success' in its many different guises.

We are proud of our track record with external visitors, too. As well as being rated 'Excellent' in every category in our latest ISI inspection, we feature annually in the Tatler Schools Guide and the Good Schools Guide, who wrote 'it's hard to believe that anybody could have a bad day here.' Please do visit our website where you can read the full reviews and watch our school video, which aims to provide a further snapshot of what life at Perrott Hill is all about: happy memories, long-lasting friendships and an excellent education.
