Making Learning An Adventure

Pinewood focuses on instilling a love and passion for learning from the earliest entry point.  Children are absolutely prepared for top independent senior schools, and many move on with scholarships and other awards, but more than that, the children are taught independence, confidence, resilience, manners, self-reliance and importantly a regard for others.

“The school fully meets its aim to release the potential of every pupil by developing character, curiosity, learning and skills… Pupils are highly confident communicators, who demonstrate mature speaking and listening skills, and consideration for others.”

Headmaster’s Welcome

Pinewood offers an educational provision that is child-centred and holistic to the core. There is ample space within a good school for scholarly teaching, but it is the overall cultivation of mind, body and spirit that counts the most.
