Tatler Schools Guide 2021

A super review from ‘Tatler Schools Guide 2021, The Top Prep and Public Schools in the UK’:
‘There’s a wonderful juxtaposition of old and new at Orwell Park, whose ‘idyllic’ 110-acre grounds contain a Victorian observatory (which is still used by the thriving astronomy club) alonside a nine-hole golf course, accredited Forest School and freshly refurbished boarding accomodation. Staff are proud of having created ‘a wonderful place for pupils to enjoy childhood’ (and prepare for top public schools such as The Leys and King’s Canterbury), and one visitor was delighted to find that every child was ‘enthusiastic, happy and confident’. Sport is a ‘big deal’ and the cricket, skiiing and hockey teams are particularly successful – the latter greatly helped by South African pro turned head of hockey, Craig Wiid. But there’s also a ‘strong performance culture’: last year saw a fully staged Battle of the Bands and a spectacular concert at Snape Maltings. No surprise, then, that applications are up.’
