A Warm Welcome...

Welcome to The Paragon website where I hope you will find all the information you require about this unique and forward thinking school.

At a time when so many schools surrender their individuality in the face of rigid testing, we are proud to be different and innovative. Our academic record is impressive and was endorsed wholeheartedly by our recent ISI inspection report that deemed teaching and learning as outstanding. Our success rate at getting pupils into Prior Park College, often with scholarships, and other schools, is enviable. 

Education at The Paragon is about more than just academic excellence. It’s about engaging the whole person; it’s about finding each and every child’s unique gifts and nurturing them. Education at prep schools should be challenging and rigorous but must also be diverse, vibrant and above all fun. The Paragon is an energetic and creative place. Outdoor learning is a buzzword often used but rarely embraced by other schools. At The Paragon we mean it. We view our beautiful grounds as an extension of the classroom and seek every opportunity for experiential learning. 
Whilst we are a school that hates to stand still and are always finding new and innovative ways to enrich the lives of our pupils, some things remain constant. At the heart of this special school is our Christian ethos. It is the bedrock on which the school was founded over 100 years ago and remains so to this day. We also believe good manners and respect are core values to be celebrated and encouraged alongside academic achievement. 

There is a very special atmosphere at The Paragon that I would encourage you to come and experience for yourselves – you will receive a very warm welcome.
