Welcome from the Head

Welcome to The Paragon School website. Thank you for visiting us.

Choosing a school is a difficult task. No doubt you are thinking about your child’s strengths, needs and talents and looking for a school in which they can thrive. I hope that once you’ve read about us, what we offer and value, you will be convinced that The Paragon School is the right choice for you and your family.

We’re proud to be different. At The Paragon we take the best academic traditions of independent schooling and combine them with an approach that is child-centred and caring, focused on the development of the whole child. Our teaching and learning is of the highest standard. We have a long track record of success in securing places for our pupils at Prior Park College. But we also believe that education is about more than academic excellence.

Our pupils enjoy an exciting curriculum and school life that is broad-based and gives them the opportunity to develop their skills and talents, and experience the joy of discovery and creativity. Our classrooms are vibrant places that are full of fun. We ask our pupils to learn by doing and whatever the weather, our beautiful grounds are a classroom too.

We’re always looking for new ways to challenge and engage our pupils. We are a school that doesn’t like to stand still. But tradition still plays its part. At The Paragon our Christian ethos has been the bedrock of school life for over 100 years; good manners and respect are core school values. Our pupils take those values with them into their local community, the city and their family life.

Do visit us to experience this vibrant and unique atmosphere for yourselves. A very warm welcome awaits you.
