A state boarding school is a rare thing but, for more than four centuries, boys have come to find education in Ashby, a small and traditional market town in the Heart of England and in the National Forest.
The Georgian boarding residence is nestled between the 15th century parish church and the ruins of Ashby Castle. It is home to 75 boys from all over the world aged between 11 and 19 years.
Parents and boys choose School House for a variety of reasons. All are drawn to the impressive setting and because they wish to experience the security and comfort of a family environment while receiving an excellent education. Successful examination results in a wide variety of subjects are always a very significant factor when choosing to board at School House.
However, the element which makes School House so special is the boys themselves. By being positive, hard working and cheerful, they exemplify the strengths and values which have defined the boarding house for generations. Our boarders thrive in their community which offers a wide variety of experiences and activities both inside and outside of the boarding house.
