About Caldicott

Our founder, J. Heald Jenkins, believed decency, tolerance and humanity would enable each boy to ‘shine their light on the world’. Today, his vision remains relevant and a source of inspiration. 

At Caldicott we place each individual boy at the centre of our day and boarding experience and believe happiness is key to fulfilling potential. We also strive to keep Caldicott at the forefront of best practice and we work hard to be regarded as a leading light in pedagogy. 

We believe in developing each boy’s character and personality by fostering an ability to communicate and work well with others. They are equipped with a flair for solving problems and are encouraged to think outside of the box. Boys will leave Caldicott with the ability to become thriving global citizens.

Most of we believe in excellence in education, treasuring tradition and cherishing childhood. We are a school where boys fulfil their academic potential and are guided to become all-rounders, with the charisma and grit to succeed.

Situated in 40 acres of magnificent grounds, we are located just 15 miles from Heathrow Airport and 30 minutes from West London where we operate a daily return bus service from Chiswick, Brook Green, Notting Hill and the local area.

Our Open Mornings offer an opportunity for you to meet the boys and staff, tour the school and hear from The Headmaster where you will get a real flavour for what Caldicott is about.

Admissions Process

We aim to make the Admissions process as friendly and straightforward as possible. The Registrar, Mrs Lisa Botwright, is happy to answer questions and discuss your application to Caldicott. Please contact her on 01753 649301 or email her on

Parents can register with Caldicott at any time. This is generally at least three years prior to entry, although many do so much earlier, and some later. The only commitment at this stage is the payment of a non-refundable Registration fee of £100.

The year before entry, your son will be invited to attend the Caldicott Assessment Morning and a report will also be requested from your son’s current school.  The aim of the Assessment Morning is to ensure that boys will be able to cope with the Caldicott curriculum.

Arrange a visit
Prospective pupils and their families are always welcome to visit the school on an individual basis to look round on a normal school day. You will be shown around the school by senior boys and have the opportunity to meet the Headmaster. Please contact the Registrar to book.
