Principal’s Welcome

Principal’s Welcome


Ewell Castle School is a happy and successful co-educational independent school on the Surrey/London borders, easily accessible by public transport.  We are a through school that offers children aged 3 to 18 the benefits of a family-friendly atmosphere whilst maintaining a stimulating and rigorous academic programme. We care about the needs of the individual child and this is facilitated by small class sizes and our personalised approach.

Ewell Castle is a private school that oozes charm and character in a green and beautiful enclave. There is widespread affection for the School’s family ethos and we are utterly loyal to our boys and girls, dedicated to inspiring their best achievement, whether in: academic success, sporting excellence or exceptional performing arts. The School’s reputation for an ambitious and personalised approach to each pupil is well founded, as is our excellent reputation for pastoral care, creating a rounded and grounded experience for all.

Ewell Castle School’s ideology is to focus our energy on the learning and welfare of our children. What happens in the classroom is the beating heart of the School, stretching and challenging our pupils to achieve more than they thought possible, and to support them when they are struggling. I firmly believe that “I don’t know” is a starting point to stimulate young people’s thinking and is never the end of the discussion - developing a growth mindset means that effort and struggle will always eventually be rewarded. Moreover, carefully nurtured social and emotional intelligence enhances communication skills and empathy, increasingly valuable qualities that will never go out of fashion in life beyond formal education.

Please do visit us during one of our open events to experience our unique School for yourself.
