About the school

We are a thriving, independent school for 190 boys and girls aged 3 to 11 years. We aim to provide children with a happy learning environment, one where they are challenged and supported to achieve personal excellence. Each year approximately 24 children aged 3+ are admitted to the Lower Kindergarten (nursery) class. Other places for older children are sometimes available and enquiries are always welcome. We are large enough to offer first-class teaching and facilities but small enough to ensure that every child is part of our extended family.

Our goal of nurturing children to become rounded individuals, fulfilling their full potential is realised through a wide curriculum. Academic success is at the heart of the school and is complemented by plenty of sport, music, art and drama. There is a full programme of extra-curricular activities, including opportunities for outdoor pursuits.

Situated in Horsforth, close to the Leeds ring-road, the school is easily accessible from most areas close to Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate. Our site is very secure with a wooded area offering delightful views over the Aire valley.

The school is an educational charity where ultimate responsibility rests with a School Council (governors). The day-to-day running of the school is delegated to the Headmaster, supported by a senior management team.

The Incorporated Association of Preparatory Schools (IAPS) is the leading professional body for independent preparatory schools. The Headmaster of Froebelian is an active member and has served on several committees as well as the national council. Membership carries important obligations including that of regular, independent inspection approved by Ofsted.


The Independent Schools Council (ISC) is an umbrella body representing all the leading independent schools. Nationally, seven per cent of children are educated in independent schools and the ISC provides a collective voice for the schools and has regular contact with the government.

ISIS (North)

The Independent Schools Information Service (ISIS) provides information and advice to parents regarding the choice of independent schools throughout the UK. There are regional offices and each regional director is able to give helpful, objective advice to parents.
