Welcome to Perrott Hill, 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.
