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 2 Christmas Play (10.12.14)17th December 2014

      In true Pre Prep tradition, Year Two performed ‘The Apprentice’; a lively nativity, to an enthusiastic audience of friends and family. What a lot of work was needed to make Bethlehem fit for all of the visitors due to arrive imminently. The workmen of the town had to take on extra apprentices and everyone busied themselves cleaning and tidying. Simeon, an old carpenter had to abandon his trade and let his trusted apprentice, Sarah go. But her skills came to shine with the arrival of Mary and Joseph. The innkeeper needed a quick repair to the manger, a wise man had a crook with a snapped off top and another had a broken box. Thank goodness Sarah was there to help. Year Two sang out with gusto and the soloists silenced the room. Words and stage positions were learnt to perfection. All of the hard work from months gone by came together in a performance worthy of the applause received. Year Two would like to thank all involved; Mrs Hanford, Mrs Fuller, Mrs Smith, Mrs Bennett, Mrs Fountain, Mr Woodman and the ladies who helped with costumes. We are already looking forward to our next venture on stage.

    • Year 8 Visit Air Ambulance (13.12.14)15th December 2014

      On Saturday 13th December a group of Year 8 pupils went to Coventry airport to visit the Northamptonshire and Warwickshire Air Ambulance and its team.  The air ambulance is one of the charities we are raising funds for this year.

      When we arrived, we went to the operations room and met the team.  There were four people on duty; a paramedic, two doctors and a pilot.  One of the doctors is the father of a Spratton Hall pupil and the other serves in the RAF.

      Whilst we were there, a call came in and they had to go out to a road traffic accident near Tamworth.  It took them 45 seconds to get airborne and they were at the accident 5 minutes later.  The person trapped in the car was freed and taken to hospital by ambulance as her injuries were only minor.

      When they came back from the mission we got to look around the helicopter, an Augusta 109, which is the fastest one that the charity can buy.  It costs five million pounds.  There is lots of special equipment in the helicopter and each rescue mission costs an average of £1,700.  The charity needs to raise £1.7 million every year to keep going.

      Also based at Coventry is the Children’s Air Ambulance which specialises in moving ill children between hospitals.
