Caldicott is a thriving day and boarding prep school for boys aged 7 – 13 in South Buckinghamshire. Situated in 40 acres of magnificent grounds, we are located just 15 miles from Heathrow Airport and 30 minutes from West London where we operate a daily return bus service from Chiswick, Brook Green, Notting Hill and the local area.
Caldicott is committed to an education that has the wellbeing of each boy at its heart; to develop individuals who thrive and flourish. We aim to equip our children to be happy and confident, form lasting relationships with others and develop strategies for coping with the challenges life throws at them – essential skills for succeeding in today’s complex, fast-moving world.
Our founder, J. Heald Jenkins, believed decency, tolerance and humanity would enable each boy to ‘shine their light on the world’. Today, his vision remains relevant and a source of inspiration.
At Caldicott we place each individual boy at the centre of our day and boarding experience and believe happiness is key to fulfilling potential. We also strive to keep Caldicott at the forefront of best practice and we work hard to be regarded as a leading light in education. We believe in developing each boy’s character and personality by fostering an ability to communicate and work well with others. They are equipped with a flair for solving problems and are encouraged to think outside of the box. Boys will leave Caldicott with the ability to become thriving global citizens.
Most of all we believe in excellence in education, treasuring tradition and cherishing childhood. We are a school where boys fulfil their academic potential and are guided to become all-rounders, with the charisma and grit to succeed.
