Papplewick School

A Swallows and Amazons nirvana (without the boats), this traditional all-boys prep is quirky and fun with an extremely kind heart. It is non-selective at intake but very strong academically: a whopping number head for Eton, Harrow and Winchester. You won’t find in-your-face grandeur here but you will find positive values, enthusiasm, humour and teaching beyond compare....

    Papplewick offers supplementary means-tested bursaries as a part of its existing scholarship scheme, with the potential of a 50 per cent fee reduction split between a scholarship (up to 15 per cent) and a bursary (up to 35 per cent). These awards are for boys between six and 11 who excel at art, music, sport or another discipline that would likely qualify them to apply for a similar scholarship at senior school.

    The school also offers limited support for children of personnel in the armed forces.
