Belmont House School Principal

Welcome to Belmont House School, a caring learning environment where girls and boys aged 3-18 years can truly flourish.

Principal's Welcome

At Belmont House School we provide a safe, welcoming, learning environment from Nursery to Senior 6. We value every child for the individual that they are and with a roll of just 300 pupils and small class sizes, we strive to develop each child's unique talents and abilities through personal attention, a broad and balanced education and extensive extra-curricular opportunities.

The School is a community where friendliness and mutual respect are encouraged; and it provides the educational and social conditions for each pupil to build their self esteem and confidence, to thrive, achieve and exceed their potential. This website will give you a flavour of what makes a Belmont House School education so special, but it can only serve to give you a brief introduction to the School.

I am confident that you will wish to come and visit us for yourself - you are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome from pupils and staff alike, and I look forward to meeting with you personally and having the opportunity to discuss with you how Belmont House can meet the individual educational needs and aspirations of your child.
