Welcome to Perrott Hill

Perrott Hill is an independent day and boarding prep school for girls and boys aged 3-13 located on a stunningly beautiful estate just outside Crewkerne, on the borders of Somerset and Dorset.

We encourage all our children to take full advantage of all the school has to offer as it truly is an inspirational place in which energy and enthusiasm are abundant – in the classroom, on the games fields, in music, art, drama and every other aspect of our rich and diverse school life. All this activity creates a very strong sense of belonging and fellowship among the pupils, and a deep-seated respect for themselves and everything around them.

True to the school’s motto, we ensure that our children are given the ‘time and space for a full education’. We nurture and challenge the children recognising that they need to be guided but also be given the freedom to think for themselves and develop the whole person, physically, spiritually and emotionally as well as intellectually. Through this approach, we are able to produce consistently impressive academic results and enjoy an enviable scholarship record with many of our pupils transferring into some of the country’s leading senior schools at 13.

We hope that you enjoy browsing the pages of our website and learn more about the benefits of a Perrott Hill education; however, nothing can match the experience of actually seeing and feeling for yourself the warmth and friendliness of a Perrott Hill welcome. We would be delighted to tour you around and provide an opportunity for you to meet my colleagues and our pupils.

With best wishes,

Alex McCullough
