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

Old Buckenham Hall is a leading independent day and boarding preparatory school for girls and boys aged 3 – 13 years and has been educating children for over 150 years.

Old Buckenham Hall is very special place for your child to begin their educational journey. Here, children remain just that. They experience, they learn, they grow, but they do so within one of the most idyllic environments imaginable.

We are proud of our beautiful school, but it is what goes on inside these old walls and in the grounds that really matters. Every teacher at Old Buckenham Hall is committed to delivering the very best for every child. For us this means inspirational academic and co-curricular teaching, outstanding pastoral care and embracing risk and challenge. Children here feel happy and safe and they have a chance to explore their aspirations and develop their character.

Situated in the heart of rural Suffolk, near the historic town of Lavenham, Old Buckenham Hall is just 20 minutes away from Bury St Edmunds, Sudbury and Stowmarket. A range of transport options are available including morning and evening bus routes and accompanied train journeys to London.

Becky and I look forward to welcoming you to Old Buckenham Hall so that we can share some of the magic.

David Griffiths
Headmaster
