The students and staff welcome you to the Rushmoor School website

Welcome to the Rushmoor School website.

We hope you will find the site useful and of interest in finding the right education for your son or daughter. It can be no substitute, however, for a personal visit of the school, giving an insight into school life and the unique ethos of Rushmoor. Please contact the Admissions Secretary to arrange a personal tour with the Principal.

We appreciate the importance you attach to selecting the best independent school for your son or daughter; childhood is something which can be experienced only once. With this in mind, and the belief that children learn best when they feel happy and secure, we aim to develop in our pupils a lifelong interest in learning - one which encompasses the full range of intellectual, cultural, artistic and sporting achievements of our society.


Places are available in selected year groups for September 2014. Admissions are considered for year 9 and 10 to complete GCSE examinations.

For further details or to arrange a visit please contact us immediately on 01234 352031 or email

The PTFA exists as the social and fund-raising arm of the school's activities.

We organise different social events throughout the year, trying to involve as many children and parents as possible in events such as fetes, feature evenings, sporting events etc..

We are a group of volunteers, parents looking to be innovative and find new ways to support the children and the school.

In the last year, there have been a number of significant purchases, most recent being the Junior School playground.
