The Froebelian School in Horsforth is a thriving and dynamic independent prep school, which places children at the very heart of all it strives to achieve. From the age of three we seek to equip our children with a lifelong thirst for and love of learning and the school continually achieves impressive levels of academic success; preparing them for the next stage in their educational journey.

The children and staff work harmoniously together creating a nurturing environment, with a uniquely happy atmosphere.

Our aim is to provide a first class all-round education and committed pastoral care in which we celebrate uniqueness where the needs, abilities, interests and aspirations of each of our bright, inquisitive children are met and their talents can flourish in a caring, structured and secure environment. This enables us to develop the whole child and we work hard to build solid foundations, which balance both the co-curricular and academic spheres of school life and honour our school motto - 'Giving a flying start to the citizens of tomorrow.' As a result, our children regularly secure a place at their first choice senior school and we enjoy an excellent scholarship success rate.

We are delighted that Froebelian children are happy and want to come to school every day and are passionate that all children enjoy a positive experience. Throughout the year extensive learning opportunities are balanced by a wide range of co-curricular activities in sport, music, art and technology and events. We foster our children's curiosity and imagination at every stage of school life and the children are nurtured and supported by an excellent staff:pupil ratio of 1:10.

Welcoming over 180 pupils between the ages of 3 and 11, we set the highest standards and expectations and as one of the North’s leading Independent prep schools we also have one of the most flexible fee scales in the region.

The latest Independent Schools Inspectorate report judged The Froebelian School as 'excellent' for the quality of the pupils' achievements and the quality of pupils’ personal development - this is the highest judgement available from the Independent Schools Inspectorate.

Awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted, our private day nursery, First-Steps at Froebelian, follows the school's ethos closely and offers younger children the opportunity to start realising their full potential at an earlier age.

"The leadership and management are inspirational" - Ofsted

Situated in Horsforth, a pleasant and vibrant suburb of Leeds near to the ring road, the school is easily accessible from most areas of Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate. Our site is very secure with a wooded area offering delightful views over the Aire valley.

The school is an educational charity where ultimate responsibility rests with a School Council (governors). The day-to-day running of the school is delegated to the Headteacher, supported by a Senior Leadership Team.

Our children adore their school and are justly proud of all they do. They love learning and there is a true sense of fun. We would love you to experience life at Froebelian - come and visit us and find out more.
