We are delighted that you are considering Knighton House for your daughter and / or son.
Boys and girls can begin their time at Knighton when they are 3 years old joining our pre-prep, The Orchard, moving to the prep school in Year 3 when they are 7 years old and stay until they are 13 in Year 8.
Knighton House has recently made the decision to move towards co-education. Consequently, for the first time we are now accepting boys up to and including Year Six as day pupils. This will be extended to include Years 7 and 8 with effect from September 2021. Work is now proceeding on a refurbishment of the school’s boarding accommodation in preparation for the move to a full co-education environment by September 2021.
Children may join at any point during the academic year when there are places available.
Although Knighton House is a non-selective school, we will seek a confidential reference from your child’s current school and invite them to take part in some form of assessment before they arrive so are informed of their strengths and weaknesses. The type of assessment varies depending on entry point.
The Admissions team are here to guide and help you with any questions you may have.

We were deeply touched by the warmth we felt with every single member of the school community that we met. Overwhelmed with the show of love and friendship demonstrated to our entire family.
‘Riding is huge. Knighton is one of Horse and Hound’s ‘six dream schools for horsey children’ and ponies have been at the centre of school life forever.’
‘Simply I think Knighton quietly does things well, very well. Don’t underestimate it.’
