2017 GCSE leaver

You are invited to our next Open Morning at award-winning Ballard School. Come and see the school in action, meet the team and get a personalised tour. We will match your tour guides with your child's areas of interest so we will ask you what they are.  You will find out what we mean by bespoke education and have an opportunity to talk to other parents and staff about our difference. Our aim is to give your child a rich variety of experiences, all underpinned by our excellent academic reputation.

Tours commence at 9:00am, 10:00am and 11:00am with refreshments in between and a headmaster’s introduction at 9:50am and 10:50am.

All tours must be booked in advance by calling 01425 626900

Ballard is a co-educational family school with no entrance exams and we look to the individual child and offer them a bespoke education within our nurturing environment. Our diverse curriculum is taught by inspirational teachers which gives a great grounding for every child from the ages of 2-16.  Our facilities include a purpose built Performing Arts Centre, full sized multi-use Astro pitch, music school, PE hall, dance studio, separate Pre-Prep department and the benefit of 32 acres of grounds, pitches and woodland.

Our open events are informal, although pre-registration is not needed, it allows you to avoid form-filling on the day.

Some recent parent  and student comments

“To say that all of you go beyond your duties as teachers is an understatement…”

“The school community runs very deep and the children across all year groups are encouraged to ‘mix and mentor’ which clearly delivers a loyalty within the school community.”

“My daughter had a bespoke service from Ballard. They optimised her strengths and underpinned the areas that weren’t so strong and she has become a happy, confident and engaging teenager ... couldn’t ask for more.”

“Ballard should not be overlooked by parents wanting a thorough and bespoke education for their children. There is nowhere that offers each individual pupil the opportunity to fulfil their own potential in a lively, sincere environment, rich in the consistent achievement of outstanding results.”

“Our only regret is that we did not send him to Ballard much earlier.”

“They have grown into kind, honest, considerate, hard working individuals and we know that we have Ballard to thank for that.”

"We have lovely people at our school."

"I like the different teachers we have"

"I love playing with my friends."
