Main School

Ages 5 - 11

Main School

Children enjoy a broad-based academic curriculum in the Main School and an abundance of extra-curricular activities. By encouraging children to join in and aim high from an early age, we see exceptional levels of achievement in every aspect of school life. 

We promote excellence and achievement of each child within an inclusive environment, where every child participates in the whole curriculum. Recognising that children develop at different speeds, we make creative use of the timetable and our staff to support and extend individuals and ability groups.

The success of our approach is plain to see in our track record for the 11-plus exam and in independent school entry examinations at 11, when children regularly attain academic, music and sports scholarships.

An exceptionally warm and friendly school, Russell House encourages individual achievements - academic, sporting and musical - as well as developing an outstanding ethos of kindness, confidence and success.

Harvest Festival

03 Oct 2018

School parents are invited to join us to celebrate Harvest Festival in the Russell Hall.

  • Individual Learner

    Independence

    Children grow in independence by taking responsibility for their academic work and for their own belongings. The discipline of completing homework assignments by a deadline, of keeping notes in their contact books and of communicating problems to teachers are important steps in the process of becoming effective learners.

  • Happy Learner

    Enjoyment

    Happy children learn. Our Pre-Prep classes are happy, friendly and fun. They start with our Russell Robins at age 2 and continue through Nursery, Transition and Reception. These classes were described as Outstanding across every category.

    Success

    By encouraging children to join in and aim high from an early age, we see exceptional levels of achievement in every aspect of school life. The success of our approach is plain to see in our track record for the 11-plus exam and in independent school entry examinations at 11.

  • Friendly, family environment

    Confidence

    We are proud of our reputation as a warm, caring family school. It’s a reputation which has been built on the friendly attitude of our staff, their shared knowledge about the families in the school, our systems of communication and our insistence on pupils displaying the same care to each other that is modelled by their teachers.
