Our School

HEADMASTER’S WELCOME

Situated in beautiful grounds which never cease to surprise visitors for their serenity and size, Dair House School founded in 1932, allows boys and girls from Nursery to Year 6 to develop their full potential, feeling supported and important.

As our children grow up, we encourage them to assume more community based responsibilities through such roles as Playground Buddies and Class Helpers. In this way every child knows everyone else and all of our children gain a crucial sense of belonging.

Our Year 6 leavers have enjoyed fantastic successes in the Buckinghamshire and Slough 11+ assessments and have also passed to a wide range of senior independent schools in the area. We provide our children with an outstanding range of extra-curricular activities as well as musical, sporting, theatrical and artistic challenges.

Our close relationship with parents, both present and past ensures that the long-held values of the school such as kindness and good manners remain central to our ethos.

We really do recommend that you visit our unique school and witness at firsthand how our small school provides big opportunities to prepare our pupils for the rest of their lives.

If you are looking for a bespoke education for your child, in a school where each child grows in self-confidence in a very happy and nurturing atmosphere, look no further than Dair House School. I encourage you to arrange a tour of the school or to enjoy one of our Open Mornings.

I look forward to meeting you in the near future; in the meantime I hope that you enjoy our website.

Helping the Community

Various community groups have used, and do use, the school and grounds for events.  These include the local church, fitness instructors and local firms.

We visit residential houses for the elderly at Christmas, to sing carols with our choir.  We also support local fetes and fairs with your Year 5 and 6 children running stalls and raising money for charity.

Sporting Links

The school has been used by local sports clubs for weekend practice sessions, open to the community.  We play sports fixtures with local maintained schools.
