About the school
Hoe Bridge School is a thriving co-educational prep school for girls and boys aged between 3 & 13. It is set in a perfect location just on the outskirts of Woking surrounded by 22 acres of beautiful grounds and is only 25 minutes from central London.
Our ethos of high expectations, individual determination, enthusiasm, respect, warmth and care lead to happy, confident and successful children. The community of parents, children, staff and governors thrive on the mutual respect and support embodied in the ethos. Expectations are high and pupils’ achievements are measured against these expectations but equally importantly against their own individual potential. Individual efforts are rewarded and recognised, no matter what the level or the subject and as a community everyone celebrates these successes. Throughout the years, inspiration, care and leadership come from both staff and children alike and ensure the community is vibrant and dynamic.
Our school was awarded a grade of ‘excellent’ during our last inspection, something that both the girls and boys, staff and parents are extremely proud of.
The atmosphere of every school is unique and the strength and attraction of Hoe Bridge lies in the atmosphere generated by the staff and pupils. Standards and targets are realistic, though set as high as possible, the bright are challenged and the less able supported; the staff endeavour to instil confidence in all the children and visitors are amazed to see just how happy the children are, how determined they are to succeed and how much they care about each other. "A busy and fun action packed adventure" is one way life at Hoe Bridge has been described.... what a great and accurate description! There is never a dull moment nor is there time to be bored and the children are proud to call Hoe Bridge their school.
The provision of cutting-edge pastoral care is at the heart of Hoe Bridge. There is a genuine commitment to and care for each member of the community and the happiness of every child is central to this. The School provides children with a safe and happy learning environment in which they can enjoy building friendships for life and developing their innate creativity, curiosity and confidence within the framework of our fortnightly pastoral values.
The School assesses all of its pupils upon entry. Most of our pupils are above the national average in their academic ability and will achieve success in academically selective 11+ and 13+ examinations to Senior Schools. Some receive specific assistance from the Learning Support Department, including those who are gifted and talented.
The School has an extremely good reputation not just in the local area but county wide as well. There is a real energy throughout to preserve the family atmosphere, to constantly strive to improve results and explore all the possibilities available to enrich both the School and the lives of the children.
