I am very proud, as the new Head of Knighton House School, to introduce you to this wonderful school. The traditions of scholarship, responsibility and sensitivity established by our founders, John and Peggy Booker, over 65 years ago remain at the heart of the school’s ethos today as we strive to nurture natural talents and build confidence.

Our challenge is to ensure that every single pupil realises and believes there is no limit to what they can achieve provided there is inspiration, fun and opportunities in bucket loads. Staff and parents share in this responsibility to make sure we all work together to provide the girls with everything they need to fulfill all of their hopes and dreams.

Here at Knighton, day and boarding girls, overseas boarders and those living closer to home are all nurtured and cared for as individuals. Friendships are made and lessons learned that will last a lifetime. The Knighton community is based on fairness, respect and kindness where adults and children are considerate of each other. Most importantly children are loved, feel secure and learn from both their mistakes and their endeavours.

Our iconic uniform of red dungarees is a daily reminder of the school’s heritage and symbolises everything we would like Knighton children to be … vibrant, practical, resilient, standing out from the crowd and ready for the adventure of life.

Don’t just take my word for it, read about our latest ISI Inspection report (ISI inspection) where we were graded excellent in all categories, and what the 2017 Good Schools’ Guide (GSG review) wrote about Knighton.

“Is there magic in the air? Yes” wrote the Good Schools Guide about Knighton; please do come and experience it for yourself, there will be a very warm welcome waiting for you — from all the Knighton House family.
