 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 7 Visit to the National Portrait Gallery (15.9.14)01st October 2014

      Arriving at the National Portrait Gallery at 11.30 am gave us just over an hour to see the BP Award Exhibition. It was well worth the wait, pupils were amazed at how life-like all the paintings were. The Award is the world’s most prestigious competition of its kind, promoting the very best in contemporary portrait painting and has launched the careers of many highly successful portrait artists. This year it attracted a record-breaking 2,377 entries from artists in 71 countries.

      The weather was good and we were able to take our lunch around the corner to Trafalar Square, but only for half an hour as we had to rush back for our talk. Pupils were engaged in an excellent dialogue of questioning and gained information on some of the paintings we saw in the exhibition. We were told about artists who painted their friends, a painter who spent two years painting his mother, expressing the hard work she did in a hospital and a mother who painted her son sitting chilled out in the middle of his large messing bedroom. We explored the moods and processes behind some of the most interesting portraits in the exhibition.

      Year 8 will be doing their own portrait painting so this trip was very valuable in many ways.
