Welcome to Old Buckenham Hall

Named as one of the top 5 UK Prep Schools by Tatler 2017

OBH is what growing up is all about! Children are happy, challenged and excited about each and every day. We are fortunate to enjoy a wonderful 80 acre parkland setting which allows the children a stunning environment in which to play, learn and develop.

It combines the best of everything a traditional family prep school can offer with fantastic facilities and a modern, dynamic approach to education.  From the nursery and pre-prep through to our leavers in Year 8 we strive to prepare all of our children for the challenges that await them, whilst ensuring that every single day the journey remains as important as the destination.

OBH offers an innovative and exciting eleven day boarding model for older children, who take advantage of an educationally challenging, yet enormously enjoyable, programme of weekend activities which run every other weekend.

Regardless of whether a child is a day pupil or takes advantage of one of our boarding options they are equally important to our community and each can be assured of receiving an extraordinary education that will challenge them greatly but also put a smile on their faces and give them lots to talk about when they get home.
