An inspirational setting


Our Nursery and Prep School is located in the prestigious Cranwell House, set in 11 acres of beautiful grounds. A real hidden treasure in Bath.

It's an inspirational setting for girls to grow and learn.


Getting hands-on

Cranwell House is a truly stunning setting for your daughter's education – a place where she can explore, discover and challenge herself everyday. Here, we have a commitment to nurturing independence, risk-taking and resilience. And we have staff who understand your daughter’s interests and how she learns. At the Royal High Nursery and Prep School we offer a uniquely beautiful setting, allowing the girls to fully immerse themselves in their learning. Outside learning is a big part of what we do here and we're lucky to offer our girls ample outside space.

Reaching higher

We're a high achieving academic Prep School with a supportive, caring ethos where every girl is treated as an individual. Our facilities go hand-in-hand with our high standard of education. Our library has a calm and inviting atmosphere where girls can come to escape in a book, do their homework and have quiet time to reflect. The Discovery Centre is packed full of inspiring activities to get the girls thinking and learning. Our bright, spacious classrooms give the girls a place to be brave and build new skills. We have a large multi-use space for our pupils to enjoy anything from sports and whole school performances to assemblies and socialising at lunchtime.

Royal High Prep School Celtic Hut Outdoor Learning

Finding their feet

Come rain or shine you will find Prep school girls out and about learning in our beautiful 11-acre grounds. We encourage practical outdoor activities which create memorable experiences, including bug hunting, tree planting and pond fishing. The practical, hands-on nature of learning is what makes wonderful lasting memories and helps our girls grow and learn. On any given day your daughter could be growing vegetables in our upcycled greenhouse, performing on our open air stage or using our outdoor kiln. And let’s not forget exploring our Celtic roundhouse made from wattle and daub.

See for yourself

Our Open Days are a great way for you and your daughter to see all that Royal High School Bath has to offer.
