Welcome from the Headmaster

Welcome to our website, and welcome to our school in what are exciting times at Cothill House! After 150 years as a dedicated and successful prep boarding school, we have now opened applications for day places from September 2023.

Why are we doing this? Well, the world is a different place to what it was 150 years ago - and what some of today’s parents are looking for in terms of a Prep School education for their sons has changed too - so we will adapt and develop to meet their expectations without losing our special ethos, ambition and community. 

We will remain loyal to our boarding heritage and continue to offer an exciting, extensive and enriching education to our full boarding pupils.
