Following the announcement of the proposed merger with Hanford School on Friday, a meeting of the parents and Governors at Knighton House resolved to form an urgent Review Committee empowered to look at all aspects of the proposed merger.
The Review Committee, led by Paul Slight and Peter Fraser QC will report back to parents on Sunday 16th March at 5pm at Knighton House. All parents, staff, OKs and Friends of Knighton are very welcome to attend.
"... the school successfully fulfils its aims for
all pupils to flourish as individuals, with their strengths and talents fully developed... to be sensitive to those around them, and good communicators...
enjoying fun and laughter." ISI inspection report, published January 2012
Welcome to Knighton House. We are a day and boarding prep school for girls aged from seven to thirteen and a pre-prep for boys and girls between three and seven. Set in 30 acres of glorious Dorset countryside, Knighton encourages all children to develop a love of learning, the skills and confidence for independent thought and a real sense of wonder at the world.
We hope this site gives you a taste of the experience of being a pupil here, the caring and supportive environment — and this beautiful place.
