Welcome from the Headmaster

 

If you cast your mind back to your own school days, you may well recall a moment when your curiosity was unexpectedly awakened. That moment was almost certainly inseparable from the inspiration of a particular teacher.  Once that spark of curiosity has been ignited, it becomes the engine of achievement; a child will learn, because children are natural learners.

Our cause, our responsibility, is to provide that spark and a culture in which it can burn brightly.  It is that quality of relationship between child and teacher which lies at the heart of Amesbury.

To learn more about Amesbury, to meet some of the characters who help to make the school what it is, then come and visit us or join us at our next Open Morning on Thursday 12th May 2016.  At Amesbury we run our Open Mornings when the school is operating normally so you will see the school as it really is.    

If after visiting Amesbury you decide it is the right school for your son or daughter, I make but one promise: your child will need no persuading to come to school in the morning, although he or she may need a lot of convincing that it is time to leave at the end of the day.

I look forward to meeting you.

Nigel Taylor Headmaster   

Founded in 1870 Amesbury is the oldest prep school and the only co-educational prep in the Hindhead/Haslemere area.
