Visit Skippers Hill Preparatory School

Since 23rd March 2020, Skippers Hill has been temporarily closed due to advice given by the government following the Coronavirus outbreak. We are all hoping for a safe and successful return to school as soon as this is possible and hope to meet with prospective families face-to-face then. In the meantime, our team are still on hand to help with any questions you might have or to guide you with our admissions process.

Although we are currently not able to offer school visits or taster days, we are very happy to speak on the telephone or arrange video conferences with prospective families during the coming weeks and months. This website, Facebook, Twitter, and |nstagram pages, as well as our YouTube channel, are excellent ways of getting a feel for our lovely school during this period.

Do get in touch if we can help in any way or if you would like to make a virtual appointment.

Telephone: 01825 830 234


If you are interested in scholarships, we currently have September 2020 scholarship places available which can be discussed with the team.

Choosing the right school

If you would like some advice on choosing the best school for your child, here are some snippets from a blog from Mr Hammond about that all important decision:

  1. Match the school to the needs of your child, rather than the other way round.

  2. Choose a school that values sport, the performing arts and creative arts equally and gives all children the chance to develop in these areas. 

  3. Academic results are vitally important but delve under the surface of published ‘results’ - choose a school that values and promotes academic progress for all, whatever the children’s starting points. 

  4. Look for a school that has high expectations but doesn’t place young children under too much pressure. 

  5. Look for a school that will show what life is like on a normal school day and watch the children at work and in the playground.

If you think Skippers Hill could be the school for your child, before you visit, take a look at the video below to see a small preview what life is like at Skippers Hill:
