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

Marchant-Holliday School is an independent residential special school, located in rural surroundings in Templecombe, Somerset. The school offers full-time education to boys between the ages of five and 13. The school is registered for 42 pupils. There are currently 48 pupils on roll, of whom 17 are resident. This means there are currently more pupils on roll than the school is registered for. The school was founded in 1952 as a registered charity. The proprietor of the school is the company Marchant-Holliday School Limited. The governing body also acts as trustees of the company. The current chair of governors took up post in January 2020.

The main primary need is SEMH, although several pupils have a range of secondary needs, such as autistic spectrum conditions and speech and language delay. The school uses one alternative provision setting – Willow Bank Forest School. All pupils have statements of special educational needs and/or education, health and care plans and are funded by local authorities.
