Welcome From Rob and Lottie Morse

Oak House is the co-educational Nursery and Pre-Preparatory Department of Aysgarth School for children ages 3 to 8 years. It is located alongside the Prep School allowing the Pre-Prep children to take full advantage of the wonderful grounds and facilities at Aysgarth.

The curriculum and the teaching in the Pre-Prep are in the traditional style whilst incorporating the best of modern practice, equipment and facilities. We aim to lay sound foundations in reading, writing, arithmetic, spelling and handwriting; to develop an interest in art, music, technology and sport; to teach and demonstrate strong moral values and to ensure that the children enjoy this precious stage of their lives.

Small classes are vital to ensure individual attention so that children can make the most of their potential and talent. Our committed, energetic and enthusiastic staff are able to devote additional time to those children who are experiencing difficulties, whilst providing a myriad of opportunities for those who are keen to progress.

Fundamentally, we understand each parent’s desire for their child to feel happy and secure and consider ourselves extremely fortunate to play a part in the children’s development.

I do hope that you will come and visit us so that you can experience firsthand what makes Oak House so very special. Please contact Niki Pargeter, Admissions and Marketing Manager, ( if you would like to arrange a tour.
