Scholarship Success at Rupert House


Mrs Lynas, Head of Rupert House, today announced the School’s latest excellent results: ‘We are extremely proud to announce that every one of the girls in Year 6 has been successful in securing a place at their chosen senior school.  These include The Abbey, St Helen & St Katharine, Godolphin, Lambrook, Headington, Queen Anne’s, Gillotts and Cranford House.’

‘They have also achieved many excellent awards,’ she continued. ‘Academic Scholarships were awarded to Isabel Wilson (St. Helen and St. Katharine), Annabelle Briess, Isabel Wilson and Isabelle Elson (Queen Anne’s).  Annabelle Briess also won a Music Scholarship and Isabelle Elson a Sports Exhibition, both to Queen Anne’s.  In addition Cressida Bell and Isabelle Elson both passed the Buckinghamshire 11+ examinations. I am very proud of our pupils – and my staff – for these terrific results.’

Mrs Lynas added that Rupert House was holding an Open Morning on Saturday 6 May from 10am to 12 noon, but personal tours could also be arranged. ‘We look forward to welcoming you through our famous blue front door where you will immediately experience the warmth and friendliness that defines Rupert House. Come and see our thriving school in action.  Every child is cherished as an individual and, with small classes, we are able to give quality time to support, enrich and extend every pupil’s varied achievements.  I offer tours of the school so visitors can experience the atmosphere and meet pupils and staff.’

Isabelle Elson said, “I haven’t decided which school I want to go to yet. I’m looking forward to doing more sports and music.  I currently play the clarinet and my favourite sport is netball.   Martha Collins who is going to The Abbey School in Reading said, “Maths and playing hockey are the things I am most looking forward to doing at my new school.  What will the girls miss most about Rupert House?  Annabelle Briess replied, “The supportive teachers and being with all my friends.”

Rupert House Preparatory School is a happy, thriving, day school set in the heart of Henley, having served the town and the local community for over seventy years. It is currently taking registrations for the academic year 2017-2018 and beyond. Support with fees, through a range of bursaries and scholarships, can be arranged.  As well as the enviably strong academic record highlighted by its recent results, the school has a wide range of extra-curricular activities before, during and after-school to broaden their horizons.  Peripatetic teachers offer tuition in piano, cello, violin, viola, harp, saxophone, trumpet and flute and there is a thriving Music and Drama department that uses Henley’s home of live theatre, the Kenton, for its productions.
