Welcome to Coln House School. It is my pleasure, as Headteacher, to welcome you to our website. We hope this will show you how committed we are to providing the highest possible quality of education for both boys and girls. We hope that you will also be able to see that our excellent reputation is well founded.
Each child is treated as an individual and strong pastoral support from the outset creates an atmosphere of security and cooperation. Relationships between staff and students are based on mutual trust. Discipline is firm but fair. This is a friendly school - it is important to us that your child should feel safe, valued and happy....
