It is my pleasure to welcome you to The Pointer School. We are an independent co-educational school for boys and girls from 3-11 years of age. Being in the heart of London gives the school a breadth of character and personality that has been at the core of our educational philosophy for over 70 years.
We are very much a Christian school at our foundation. This is the compass we use to guide our pupils through the school, from being kind and compassionate individuals, to fully appreciating the wider world that we live in.
We proudly describe Pointers children as self-confident and generous in spirit and believe they will transition to senior school at 11 years old as young citizens ready to take on the world. How do we do this? Well, we give the pupils opportunities to grow their confidence and explore their interests. This starts in the classroom but runs through everything in the school from sport and music to drama and chess. We also have a keen interest in supporting our local community and, indeed, projects beyond in places like Tanzania.
Our school is proof that you can be highly academically ambitious without being selective. Children join us and are immediately immersed into a bespoke education with small class sizes (never over 20) and a focus on every child fulfilling their potential. We talk about finding the right senior school for our children, predominantly a range of excellent independent and Grammar schools across the capital. As many as a quarter of our pupils gain prestigious scholarships for 11 plus entry.
You will find us on the corner of the Heath, housed in Georgian buildings with as much character as our school. You are very welcome to visit to see for yourselves and see the school in action.
