ABOUT Quinton House School, Northampton, UK
Quinton House is an independent co-educational day school for children aged 2-18 years, based in Northampton. Quinton House offers education from Nursery through to GCSE and A Level. Situated at Upton Hall, surrounded by 30 acres of beautiful parkland on the edge of Northampton, Quinton House provides individualised learning at its very best.
Small class sizes, especially at GCSE and A Level, contribute not only to students’ academic success but to the family atmosphere, so cherished by children and their families past and present.
Our students, from Nursery through to Sixth Form, are the school’s greatest asset. Articulate, confident, aspirational, good-natured and with impeccable manners, the students are our ‘jewel in the crown’ and are a joy to teach.
Our team of classroom practitioners are expert at drawing out the talents and abilities of each child and delivering a combination of challenge and support to ensure students fulfil their potential.
“Quinton House School is highly successful in fulfilling its stated aims because the passionate inspiration of the Principal engenders an ethos in which all students feel valued and nurtured.”
“In this family climate, students are exceptionally well cared for and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding.”
“The quality of education provided is good and the behaviour of students is outstanding.”
