Knighton House School in Blandford, Dorset, UK is a day and boarding preparatory school for girls only aged from seven to thirteen and a pre-prep for boys and girls between three and seven.

Small classes are an essential part of life at Knighton and the average amount of pupils in class is 12.As a result, teachers know our students really well and can work with each of them individually.

This top girls only boarding school  has specialised teachers who master their skills constantly and present innovative and engaging curricula which is supported by face-to-face classes.  Facilities of this boarding school in Dorset include: a dedicated science lab and a state-of-the-art ICT suite, a music school with separate practice rooms, a library, art, design and technology studios and fully-equipped cookery facilities. The playing fields and astroturf, the tennis courts and gymnasium are busy every day during afternoons. In Autumn our main sport is hockey and our pupils may also practice netball, athletics or tennis.

We can also provide our students with a special Learning Support team which helps them to face all types of  learning challenges. Teaching is provided in one-to-one or in small groups of students and a warm and welcoming atmosphere is another great advantage.

Curriculum changes at Knighton House beginning September 2018: towards a new bespoke curriculum fit for the modern world.

We are delighted to announce that from September 2018 this top girls only boarding school will be moving away from the traditional prep school Common Entrance syllabus and introducing a new and bespoke KED (Knowledge Enlightenment Discovery) Curriculum
