An Independent Preparatory Day School for Boys and Girls aged 4-13 years

 Main HallSituated in 50 beautiful acres of Northamptonshire countryside, Spratton Hall is an independent preparatory day school of over 400 boys and girls aged 4 to 13 years.

Centred around the Grade II listed Georgian manor house, Spratton Hall has developed and flourished in the 60 years since its foundation in 1951, providing exceptional facilities throughout.

Having completed our five year development plan the school's facilities now include a new purpose-built large sports dome, a full-sized floodlit astro-turf; fully refurbished dining room and kitchen, state-of-the-art ICT suite, updated science and music blocks as well as a new multi-media centre and library. The final part of the building programme was the creation of an exciting new Performing Arts Centre. 

Spratton Hall feeds many of the top private senior schools and has an exceptionally good reputation throughout - in the words of the Good Schools Guide, Spratton is an “extraordinary school”.


 

    • Year 8 Visit Bedford Observatory (13.1.15)28th January 2015

       

      On Tuesday 13th of January Mr Bradnam took 17 Year 8 pupils to Bedford Planetarium and Observatory. When we arrived, we went first to the Planetarium where we watched star constellations on a 4m x 4m half hemisphere.  Various constellations and nebulas were marked out on it.  The projector had been made by one of the teachers at the Planetarium.   They pointed out certain constellations like Orion’s Belt, Taurus and the Saucepan. They then commenced the rotation of the Earth and Stars, which made it tricky to keep an eye on all the constellations being pointed out. We then entered the Observatory, unfortunately it was too cloudy to use the enormous Telescope in the middle of the room, which you had to use a ladder to look through the lens. Instead we were shown how it worked and some videos they had filmed previously of the Moon, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter. We learnt how the red eye on Jupiter is a storm that has lasted over 300 years and is twice the size of the Earth! The videos showed how the telescope would slowly focus in on the planet (or Moon) and how the Earth’s atmosphere made it seem as if it was shaking. We then went back into the observatory and were shown a video of taken from the international space station.  By Ben Hazell
