Dair House School, founded in 1932 and based in Farnham Royal, Buckinghamshire, takes great pride in providing a highly supportive, caring and very happy environment for both boys and girls from Nursery to Year 6 to develop their full potential. As our November 2019 Independent Schools Inspectorate inspection commented:

‘Pupils display high levels of self-confidence and independence from an early age’

We are a Co-Educational Independent prep school covering Buckinghamshire and Berkshire, which seeks to create the security and comfort of a second home for our children. Our staff provide the most positive of educational environments and provide an outstanding education.

The inspection of November 2019, inspected two areas of educational quality and gave us the highest awards:

Excellent - Pupil’s Personal Development

Excellent - Pupils’ Academic Achievement

All of the adults at Dair House School know all of the children and all of the children know each other; this creates a wonderful atmosphere in which no child is left to feel alone or ignored.

We encourage our children to be happy to take on new ideas and new challenges. We want our children to be brave in their learning and not feel anxious about not understanding when they first meet a new concept.

Kindness, resilience, truthfulness, tolerance and happiness are the aims of Dair House School. For over thirty years the Kindness Cup has been presented once a week to a deserving child and this, along with our Wednesday Awards Assembly, Southerden Tree of Recognition and Devonside House Cup, is a vital part of school life.

Our Year 6 Leavers have enjoyed fantastic successes in the Buckinghamshire and Slough 11+ assessments and have also won major academic, sports, music and art scholarships to senior independent schools.

Our very close relationships with parents, both present and past ensures that the long-held values of the school remain central to our ethos.

Please do contact us so we can show you our wonderful school.
