'The pupils’ attitudes to learning are exceptional.’ The Independent Schools Inspectorate 2017
The Froebelian School is for boys and girls aged 3 to 11 in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Curently ranked 22 in the Sunday Times 'Top 100' Prep-schools league table.
Children are at the heart of everything we do and we are passionate that all children enjoy a positive experience at school each and every day. Our aim is to provide a first class all-round education in which both the unique needs of our children are met and their talents can flourish in a caring, structured and secure environment.
We are enormously proud of our strong and closely-knit family community and we work together to foster a life-long thirst for learning. We believe that happy children make effective learners and our school resonates with life and energy. The children and staff here apply themselves with dedicated enthusiasm in creating a stimulating and dynamic learning environment.
The Froebelian School strives to be truly innovative whilst maintaining our reputation for high standards. Quality classroom teaching and committed pastoral care ensure that our teachers really know and understand our children as individuals. Benefitting from a highly favourable staff to pupil ratio, we are able to provide plenty of focused support for pupils. We set high expectations for effort and behaviour and the children always rise to meet this challenge. As a result, our children regularly secure a place at their first choice senior school and we enjoy an excellent scholarship success rate.
We cultivate a positive ethos built on strong relationships where our children can develop their skills across a wide range of opportunities available to them. Performance and participation are gently encouraged from the very beginning and all our children have regular opportunities to perform in the sporting, theatrical, musical and public speaking arenas. We nurture each child in a community based on fairness, respect and kindness where adults and children can trust and are considerate of each other. We encourage children to build life-long friendships and equip them for success in a rapidly changing world.
The staff and children work so harmoniously together here. It is a special place, with a uniquely happy atmosphere. Our children adore their school and are justly proud of all they do. They love learning and there is a true sense of fun. We would love you to experience the warmth and politeness of our children for yourselves – please do come and meet them!
As an independent school we must charge fees in order to provide excellent education and care because we receive no money from central or local government. As a registered charity we are a not-for-profit school and only charge fees that are necessary to run the school properly and to provide investment for continuing improvements to our facilities and resources.
We believe that our fees provide real value for money and we know that they compare very favourably with similar outstanding schools.
Scholarships & Bursaries
We have some means-tested bursary support available to provide support for children to join the school irrespective of family income. Subject to places being available and to a detailed assessment of family income, children may join the school with up to 100% remission of fees. Further details are available from the Bursar.
