About Bute House, Preparatory School for Girls
Bute House teaches girls aged from 4 to 11 who have a broad range of talents and abilities. The class size is approximately 20 but the ratio of pupils to teachers is about 14 to 1. The Lower School, Reception to Year 3, takes girls aged 4 to 8 and the Upper School, girls aged 8 to 11 in Years 4 to 6.
At every stage teaching is organised to allow each girl to experience maximum personal success in all areas. We recognise, however, that speed of progress always varies from child to child. Our excellent results and high academic standards are achieved without unnecessary competition and pressure.
Children are encouraged to love learning and undertake it for the intrinsic pleasure of extending their boundaries and not just for the gaining of a star, mark, grade or sticker. All areas of the curriculum are given equal status so that girls are given to chance to excel in their particular strength, whether this is in sport, art, music, drama, science or mathematical and language skills. We encourage girls to be active learners who take some responsibility for their own learning and come half way to meet us. We welcome individuals; they all can discover their special place at Bute House.
