Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Description

Grantham Farm Montessori School is an independent day school for boys and girls aged from two to seven years. The school opened in 1985. The majority of staff were at the school, including the headteacher, at the time of the previous inspection in May 2016. The school follows the ethos and teaching methods of Maria Montessori and aims to provide each child with an individual learning experience. Pupils learn at their own pace through a self-discovery approach. The school’s curriculum is designed to nurture independence and self-confidence. The school is situated in a specially converted barn located near the village of Baughurst in Berkshire, close to the Hampshire border. The building houses three classrooms: one Inspection report: Grantham Farm Montessori School, 1–3 May 2018 Page 8 of 11 for Nursery-aged children called The Children’s House, one for Reception and key stage 1 pupils called Grantham Farm and another for group activities that also doubles up as the headteacher’s office and medical room. The headteacher is the sole proprietor. The school does not have a governing body. The school is registered to accept 40 children on roll. At the time of inspection, there were 31 children on roll in the school. The majority of children are in the early years, with 22 in the Nursery and five in the Reception class. There are four pupils in key stage 1. The headteacher was appointed internally in January 2016. Following the last inspection in 2016, two members of staff were internally appointed to the post of deputy headteacher, forming a school leadership team with the headteacher. The mission statement of the school is ‘To enable the full potential of every child to enhance the future of the world’. There are no children with a statement of special educational needs, and the vast majority of children are of White British origin. A small proportion of children speak English as an additional language.

“Lovely school”
"> When I moved to the area I found the school almost by accident. Two years later I am so happy I did! My daughter is going from strength to strength. She is excited every morning and runs into school every day enthusiastic to learn something new. She is encouraged to have her own interests and to share knowledge amongst her peers. She is learning how to think independently and more importantly develop a thirst for knowledge. I can see all of this and every day I am amazed what her school is achieving. My daughter is almost 5 and is happy, creative and enjoying life. She does not even realise how much she is learning and we are just amazed at her progress. Emma, Sue and all the other teachers excel and you can sense their passion for helping to shape young minds. I cannot imagine sending my daughter anywhere else and only wish that every child could have such an amazing experience at school. It will provide her a fantastic foundation on which she can build a solid school career.
