Beyond Education: The Cothill Trust

Celebrating individuality and the freedom of childhood

Embracing the best traditions of British education dating back 150 years

And delivering exceptional academic teaching and pastoral care as a family of schools

That’s our ethos here at the Cothill Trust.

Our six prep schools all boast idyllic rural settings to enjoy the best of the English outdoors. Not to
mention the majestic Château de Sauveterre in the South of France where our pupils spend a term
immersed in French language and culture.

Each school has its own unique personality. But they all share our consistent values: putting our
pupils first; performing to the highest standards; pooling our strengths to collaborate and achieve
more; innovating by anticipating change and adapting to it; and looking beyond the school gates
to serve the wider local communities.

Most importantly, we prioritise the development of our pupils, aged 2-13, treating every one of the
1,250 children as individuals.
