Every Day is an 'Open Day'
Prep Boarding & Day School, 8 – 13 yrs
Aysgarth School is the only boys Prep boarding school north of Oxford. Founded in 1877 as a boarding school to prepare boys to go on to the most selective public schools all over the country, this is still the core aim of the School today. The School holds an unmatched record within the North of sending boys to schools such as Eton and Harrow. Boys from all over the UK and abroad attend the School. Aysgarth is home to an intimate, thriving community of children and staff. Their goal is to find and develop the best in every child by providing a caring, stimulating and comfortable environment.
The Headmaster and staff believe strongly in the value of boarding as a means of developing a boy in every respect - to be happy, confident, courteous, independent and ambitious. Employers today look for these characteristics as well as the academic excellence that Aysgarth provides. The chapel is at the heart of the School reflecting the importance of the Christian faith and values taught within the School.
Visit the School - Every Day is an 'Open Day'
Anthony and Caroline Goddard at Aysgarth School always like to show around prospective parents however early in the process as they feel it is important to meet with parents to learn as much as possible about your son and your hopes for him. The tour includes meeting some of the boys so you can learn more about the School and ask them as many questions as you like.
The Spectator magazine’s Guide to Independent Schools recently said of the School:
"Aysgarth, by staying true to its original purpose, finds itself not only distinct but paradoxically progressive, and in a position to demonstrate why educating the sexes separately is also thought, for solid reasons, to be the better way."
