Admission to Quainton Hall School & Nursery  

We positively encourage prospective parents to come and visit our School before registering their child. We have a Saturday Open Morning annually in September or parents can contact the Admissions’ Secretary to arrange an appointment with the Headmaster and a tour of the school during the working week. These take place most Tuesday mornings (09:00-10:00) and the Headmaster will lead these tours. The tour ends with time for questions.

Our most recent ISI Inspection Report (February 2020) is available to view here...

NurseryQHS Welcome

We accept children into our Nursery aged between 2½ - 4 years. 

The Nursery year begins in September and places are offered to children who will be aged 2½ + and have been on our waiting list.

Although the Nursery does not have Open Days we advise parents to call the School and make an appointment to visit the Nursery.
