Tradition surrounds Quinton House School. Founded in 1946, the coeducational UK private day school is located in the vibrant university town of Northampton. The school's inspiring setting encourages domestic and international pupils to excel academically and socially. Quinton House School offers ESL programmes, more than 22 GCSE core and optional courses, and the largest range of A-Level subjects in the area. In fact, recent examinations indicate that 90% of GCSE students achieved at least 5 A*-C grades and 100% of A-Level students achieved A*-C grade in their chosen subjects. Quinton House School gives all students, aged 2 to 18, individualised attention in a nurturing, supportive and challenging intellectual environment.
There is a majestic quality within the classrooms at Quinton House. Set on 31 picturesque acres, the stately building dates back to medieval times. The unique combination of period features and modern, well-equipped facilities include science laboratories and a sports centre complete with a climbing wall. There's also an open-air courtyard with glazed atrium that is used as a dining room and student assembly hall.
Sports and Arts
Team (rugby, football, hockey and netball), as well as individual sports (golf, fishing and wall-climbing) play an important role in Quinton House School's holistic approach to learning. For students interested in creative endeavours, there are school productions, ballroom dancing, music, choir, band and orchestra. A full complement of fine arts is represented, along with a long list of extracurricular enrichments, including the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme.
Located just over an hour from Central London and the world-renowned universities of Oxford and Cambridge, the country city of Northampton (population around 212,000) is a great mix of old and new. Situated on the shores of the River Nene, the town centre is filled with shops, restaurants and pubs, and there's even a first-rate sports dome for professional rugby, football and cricket teams.
