Girls in IT, Hatherop Castle, Gloucestershire

Welcome to Hatherop Castle

Hatherop Castle is a happy and exceptionally high-achieving day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 2 to 13 years old.

Housed in a Tudor castle set in 22 acres of beautiful landscaped grounds in the heart of the Cotswolds, this is a magical place in which to spend your childhood, and here our children are challenged and supported to explore the world and their surroundings, try new things, take risks, grow in ability and confidence and fulfil their potential. There are endless opportunities to shine academically, in the visual and performing arts and on the sports field, and lifelong friends to be made in this warm, family environment.

Our carefully crafted Common Entrance programme in Years 7 and 8 leads to huge success at 13+. All our children gain their first choice of senior school, with a high proportion of scholarships and prizes. By the time they leave us, our pupils are confident and eager to take the next step in their education.
