Our stories

Nick Armitage

We are delighted to welcome Nick Armitage as the new Head of Rupert House School. 

Unfortunately, due to heath and safety restrictions surrounding the Coronavirus, Nick was not able to come into the school ahead of the new school year to meet the pupils. So, we asked the pupils what they would like to know about their new Head. From favourite books to favourite pizza toppings, you too can find out more about him here...

Year 3 Rugby at Rupert House

Year 3 made the most of the beautiful weather in their rugby lesson with Mr Brown earlier this week.

Fresh air and exercise is even more important now than it has ever been. Our pupils have four sports sessions timetabled each week. This term we’re focussing on hockey, netball, rugby, gymnastics, swimming and cross country.

We have our own all-weather sports pitch, playing fields and tennis courts and regularly use the 4G pitch at Henley Rugby Club for sports lessons.
