Information about the school

Russell House is a family-friendly school for girls and boys aged from 2 to 11, with a warm, caring and inclusive atmosphere where every child has access to a myriad of opportunities for extra-curricular activities. Our size enables us to promise and deliver exceptional levels of personal care, ensuring each child is authentically treated as an individual throughout their time with us.

We have a reputation for achieving remarkable results across the board; from academic subjects to music, art, drama and sport. All our children leave at 11 and we have a well-established reputation for success in the Kent Test and other super-selective Grammar tests at 11+, and competitive entry to independent schools such as Sevenoaks, Caterham and King's Rochester. We have a consistently good record in gaining scholarships in academics, sport and music, which goes hand in hand with an ethos which encourages individuality, self-expression, curiosity to learn and the ability to challenge accepted wisdom.

The school is careful to cultivate a calm, happy atmosphere and there is also a strong emphasis on building skills for the future and developing a sensitive awareness of the world beyond the school. Russell House is idyllically set in the beautiful village of Otford, with sweeping views of the North Downs.
