Welcome to Knighton House School where we are excited to be celebrating our 70th anniversary year, one in which we cement a closer relationship with Bryanston School and welcome boys up to Year 6.
Although re-opening school after a long lay-off presents us with many challenges, our aim is to keep the operation of the school as normal and familiar as possible with some sensible adjustments. The priority is to get the pupils back in the classroom with their teachers where they can start the important business once again of learning and socialising together.
A new closer relationship with Bryanston School secures our long term future opening up exciting investment and development opportunities at a time when many independent schools are under financial threat. Working closely with Bryanston will further enrich the educational experience of all our pupils at Knighton House and provide opportunities for teaching and learning collaborations between staff and pupils.
We have always welcomed boys in our pre-prep at Knighton House, so from this September we are opening the prep school up to boys up to and including Year 6 initially for day boys only. We strongly believe there is a demand for co-education at Knighton House so this will now provide more families the opportunity to consider Knighton House for their children. We will never lose our empowerment for girls but we also believe this agenda is now best served in a co-educational environment.
Whilst we are focussing on reopening the school after the long lay-off, 2020/21 is an important year for Knighton as it marks the 70th anniversary of our founding in 1950. The launch of the Knighton House 70 Appeal will fund scholarships that will continue to widen access to the outstanding teaching and learning at Knighton.
Knighton House 2020/21 will be a landmark year in so many ways. Do come and see us, we would welcome the opportunity to meet you to discuss our plans further and show you around our wonderful school. Robin Gainher – Headmaster
What makes Knighton is summed up brilliantly by our parents:
“It’s a place where my children can enjoy their childhood without sacrificing a 1st class education and where they can get a 1st class education without sacrificing their childhood”.
“Simply I think Knighton quietly does things well, very well. Don’t underestimate it”

What People Say
If you are an overseas student, I would recommend Knighton House because you have lots of fun here and the people are so nice.
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.
The location is wonderful, but your care & love makes it even better!!!
