Choosing a school can be one of the hardest decisions a parent has to make. The River School offers a distinctive education based on Christian values where children are taught in small classes. Our vision is that each child will leave equipped with the best character qualities, skills, disciplines and knowledge to realise their potential and gifts.


We welcome prospective parents to come and see us in our beautiful surroundings and to meet the children and staff. Most students will join us in the Reception class and progress right through the school. We also expect year groups will grow as other children join at different stages. Applications are therefore considered at any stage up to, and including, Year 9. Applications to join the GCSE years will be considered in exceptional circumstances.
