Mount House Vision
Our commitment to character education ensures teachers and students work collaboratively in an atmosphere of mutual respect. Students are supported to become responsible for their own development, becoming intellectually curious, resilient, independent young people with good moral character.
Teaching is in small classes and is based on teachers’ knowledge of every student, enabling specific targeting to support, challenge and stretch all learners. Each child is nurtured and supported, ensuring that they are safe, valued and enabled to fulfil their potential.
Our ethos of genuine partnership between the School and home contributes significantly to the success of this school and the very best outcomes for our students. A culture of open, honest and frequent communication between the School and home is hugely valued by our parents.
School days have a powerful influence on future success in life and we believe a Mount House education provides the best start. Our students achieve excellent academic qualifications, with the overwhelming majority going on to study at their first-choice university. They leave us as bright, articulate, thoughtful and intellectually curious students with a strong moral compass and a great interest in the main issues facing the world in the twenty-first century.
