About Arnold House School
Arnold House School is an independent Church of England primary school for boys aged 3-13, located in the St John's Wood area of north-west London. Arnold House School was established in 1905 with just nine pupils. Today there are eight year groups, each divided into two forms.
The school aims for class sizes of between 16 and 18. The main academic subjects are taught with a view to meeting the standards set by the Common Entrance syllabus, which relates to the demands of the national curriculum but with extra time devoted to French, classics and games.
Values and vision
Arnold House School aims to ensure that breadth and excellence remain the cornerstones of its approach to teaching and learning. Teachers strive to serve the best interests of pupils throughout the ability range.
The primary school sets high academic standards, values a supportive family ethos and aims to maintain a healthy balance between academic, artistic, pastoral, spiritual and sporting matters. The environment is relatively traditional, maintaining a degree of formality.
“The school is highly successful in its promotion of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development within a generous Christian ethos. Pupils are given extensive opportunities to grow as confident and harmonious citizens with a strong sense of self, and tolerance of each other. Their moral and social awareness is excellent.”
