Terra Nova is a vibrant and exciting school set in 35 acres of rural Cheshire countryside. The perfect place for a child to grow and develop. The school is steeped in history and values the traditions that form the foundations on which a fresh thinking approach is adopted.
All children in the School are encouraged to develop their talents and realise their potential in the way that best meets their needs and personalities. The wellbeing of every child is at the heart of the School’s philosophy, we want them to develop a genuine love of learning, be resilient, optimistic, confident and kind people who can sustain good relationships and make a positive contribution to society.
Relationships are further fostered, and independence developed with the opportunity for pupils to board at Terra Nova School in preparation for both Senior boarding schools and future university life. Pupils are enjoying flexible boarding from Year 3 to Year 8. There are currently 35-50 pupils boarding on a regular basis.
Terra Nova School prides itself on preparing pupils for the next stage in their education, through a dynamic, vibrant and engaging curriculum taught by world-class educators who have training and experience across the world. All this achieved making use of the very best resources. Many pupils leave Terra Nova with scholarships at prestigious Schools such as Shrewsbury, Uppingham, Rugby, Repton, Marlborough and Sedburgh. Other pupils have gone on to study at Eton and Oxford.
