Welcome to the Rushmoor School website

We hope you will find the site useful and of interest in finding the right education for your son or daughter. It can be no substitute, however, for a personal visit of the school, giving an insight into school life and the unique ethos of Rushmoor. Please contact the Admissions Secretary to arrange a personal tour with the Principal. 

We appreciate the importance you attach to selecting the best independent school for your son or daughter; childhood is something which can be experienced only once. With this in mind, and the belief that children learn best when they feel happy and secure, we aim to develop in our pupils a lifelong interest in learning - one which encompasses the full range of intellectual, cultural, artistic and sporting achievements of our society.


In line with Charity Commission requirements we offer bursaries and scholarships at both Rushmoor and St Andrews. New applications are welcome at both schools for the next academic year. Bursaries are means-tested whilst scholarships are awarded for sports/arts/academic.

We organise different social events throughout the year, trying to involve as many children and parents as possible in events such as fetes, feature evenings, sporting events etc..

We are a group of volunteers, parents looking to be innovative and find new ways to support the children and the school.

In the last year, there have been a number of significant purchases, most recent being the mini bus lite and junior playground.
