Headmaster’s Welcome

Welcome to St. Hugh’s, a leading day and boarding Independent Preparatory School and nursery for boys and girls aged 2 - 13. St. Hugh’s is set in its own beautiful grounds and lies within the idyllic village of Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire.

St Hugh’s is a school where we believe wholeheartedly in the partnership between home and school to ensure that every child is fully supported throughout their time with us. Our belief is that the positive relationships between the teachers and pupils allow us to get to know and understand the individual needs of each and every child.

Every child is encouraged to find their “talent” and to enjoy the challenge of doing so. By providing a curriculum that is as exciting as it is broad and challenging, we nurture and encourage their talents and give them every opportunity to fulfil their potential. Their emotional and social development is just as important to us as their academic progress, and placing their wellbeing side by side with their academic development will ensure that they thrive in school and enjoy what should an exciting time in their lives.

Each child is encouraged to be curious and to persevere. Our Learning Dispositions, supported by our pioneering work in Visible Learning,  excite and enthuse our pupils and they are proud of the work that they do. Irrespective of their ability, each and every child has a desire to learn. Asking questions, making mistakes and finding solutions are all key aspects of learning and children at St Hugh’s develop the confidence to do all of these. The envious learning environment at St Hugh’s provides a beautiful space where classrooms and playing fields provide equal opportunities for all - be it in a lesson, a match, a concert or a play, there are opportunities for children to develop, encouraged by caring professionals who are proud to be part of the school and who love what they do.

I am just as proud to play my part in their journey as Headmaster of a community where any child can succeed. Please come and see us in action, we look forward to meeting you!

Mr Jeremy Wyld
