About St Olave's School
St Olave’s School (pronounced ‘olives’), for girls and boys aged 8 to 13 years, is adjacent to the main campus of St Peter’s and introduces boarding as an element of the School. Under the leadership of the Master, the teaching staff provide expertise in the 8 to 13 range, guaranteeing subject specialism to challenge and support every pupil.
The curriculum is wide and challenging with expert teaching from the earliest age. There are many opportunities for recreational and competitive sport with girls’ and boys’ teams enjoying success both regionally and nationally. There are numerous co-curricular activities to choose from on a weekly basis. Music plays a central role in school life, involving the full range of orchestral instruments.
Boarding is an integral element of the School and is accommodated in Wentworth, a boarding house on the main school campus.
St Olave’s has retained its own identity – a school within a school – giving all pupils a sense of pride and identity. It is recognised as a school in its own right, playing a vital role in the success of Clifton and St Peter’s.
