What People Say About Us
It’s not so much what we have to say about ourselves but what others have to say about us that really matters.
We have two daughters at Rupert House School who joined in Years 1 and 3. It is always a worry moving schools for children, but we were delighted with how welcome our girls were made to feel and how quickly they settled. In the 18 months they have been at Rupert House they have positively thrived. Rupert House is, without doubt, a wonderful, nurturing environment for children, but one in which the teachers ensure children are given the space to grow and learn at their own pace and given support if they need it. The academic curriculum is taught dynamically and the opportunities outside of the academic curriculum are huge: so much music, sport, art, DT and drama. Teaching and non-teaching staff give above and beyond, creating a wonderful school community and providing super role models for our children. We couldn’t recommend Rupert House School highly enough.

My daughter is now in Year 5 at Rupert House having joined in Nursery. Rupert House has given her the confidence to believe in herself and follow her dreams. The curriculum is excellent, with the option of attending a fantastic selection of clubs. A true family school with outstanding pastoral support and great academic results. I would highly recommend it and thank all the staff for their hard work. Commented on 4th Feb 2018 - Good Schools Guide 2018
Rupert House has taken a very personal approach to each of our daughters. The teachers are both passionate and caring - their diligence and energy is outstanding. They have gone above and beyond our expectations. A nurturing culture exists throughout the school and the curriculum is well rounded with commitment to art, drama, music and sport alike. Our daughters have grown and developed at Rupert House. We are very grateful for the care and attention they receive and would wholeheartedly recommend the school.

Our eldest daughter started Rupert House aged 3 in Rupert Bears (the pre-school). 4 years later she is still very much enjoying school life and is thriving both academically and socially. Her little sister is now following the same path. The curriculum is varied and it's really nice to see so much music and sport incorporated into the timetable alongside the core subjects. The staff, children and parents are lovely. We are very pleased we chose Rupert House for our children and look forward to seeing where it takes them next!

With 2 daughters in Upper School who’ve lived on 4 continents, we can say with assurance that Rupert House School provides a top International benchmark of academic strength, strong extra-curricula sporting activities and a very impressive music/drama/arts program that you would imagine belongs to a much bigger school. Mrs Lynas the amazing Head, leads from the front and all her staff are hand-picked and finely tuned in maturity, years of experience and that sought after element of common sense. Children are drilled in manners, courtesy and respect and stand out in confidence. Rupert House feeds into several of the UK’s most prestigious & top-ranked secondary schools and in our mind it has been worth every penny. Commented on 19th Jan 2018 - Good Schools Guide 2018
Our Y6 daughter has been at Rupert House since nursery, and it’s been a pleasure to see her thrive and grow there, both academically and in various extra-curricular interests. Teaching is outstanding, with a focus on individual progress and challenge as well as group work - the staff get to know all the pupils well and are able to support and stretch each child as needed. The atmosphere is happy, friendly and conscientious. We’ll be sorry to say goodbye to Rupert House this year, but we know our daughter has been well-prepared for secondary!

I love the school and my daughters have been happy there every single day. The teachers are dedicated and the opportunities have been brilliant for my daughters. All in all, a wonderful school and a lovely environment. Parent Survey 2014-5

Sport and lacrosse in particular has given me so much opportunity to learn, to travel and to make friends with interesting people. My biggest moments were winning Schools Nationals, being part of a Wales Under 21 side that defeated England (and won the home internationals) winning a sports scholarship to Durham and appearing in BUCS Finals. It was at Rupert House that I first developed a love of sport. Rachel Phillips, Senior Physiotherapist, Lewisham NHS Trust
Rupert House’s last standard inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) was in 2011
Pupils are successful in their learning, and their personal development is excellent.
Pupils of all ages, including the children in the EYFS, have outstandingly well-developed personal qualities and are friendly and confident.
The ISI conducted two Compliance Inspections in 2017. An issue relating to the appointment of peripatetic music staff was identified in the first inspection and this was swiftly rectified. The school is fully compliant with all safeguarding requirements and has a clean bill of health with ISI.
