Our Schools

Cothill House

Established in 1870, Cothill House is recognised globally as one of the country’s leading boys’ boarding prep schools with an exceptional record of preparing pupils for the top independent schools.

Set in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside, Cothill provides an inspirational all-round education and unrivalled opportunities for 200 boys aged 8-13. This is an exciting time for Cothill as after 150 years as a dedicated and successful prep boarding school, it is now open to day and flex boarding pupils.

The aim is to foster every boy’s happiness, confidence and individual passions, helping him to achieve his potential, to cultivate his love of learning and to stimulate his love of life.

Cothill boys flourish in an environment where hard work, integrity and originality are valued and rewarded. Pupils are encouraged to ‘get stuck in’ and challenge themselves and, as a result, they learn the benefits of teamwork as they grow in courage and thrive within a happy and vibrant community.
