Carrdus School

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions that a parent makes. A good school will get the best out of every child – academically, socially, creatively and physically
‘Great day school’ (The Week Independent Schools Guide)

"Traditional manners are also a key ingredient of the success of Carrdus"

All chidren are different. At Carrdus we encourage them to discover hidden talents and new found abilities by providing them with a wide range of opportunities , both in and out of the classroom


There is no uniform at Carrdus.This means that each and every child is very much their own person and celebrated as an individual. The only compulsory items are a warm jacket and a pair of wellies to enjoy the enormous gardens. Boys enjoy a nurturing start to their school lives when they join us at 3 and then move onto their new schools at 7 or 8. This makes us the only girl’s school (from 8-11 years) in the area. Our Year 6 girls go on to highly regarded senior schools full of confidence and enthusiasm for life – ready for the next phase.

The pupils really benefit from the small size of the school and get to know each other very well regardless of year. The staff know all the pupils as individuals and there is a huge amount of mutual respect which makes the atmosphere a very special one.

Our 11 acres of grounds provide space for the children to let off steam and learn to play without constant adult intervention, learning to share and work together. Whether it’s climbing a tree, making a den, swimming in the outdoor heated pool or tending to the vegetable garden - it’s important that they grasp these skills early on in life. Traditional manners are also a key ingredient of the success of Carrdus, whether it be holding the door for someone or looking people in the eye. Girls and boys leave knowing that self-discipline, honesty, hard work and a firm handshake are key ingredients for success in the future!
