Boarder on the top bunk

Welcome from the Headmaster and his wife

Traditional boarding prep schools provide time for a full education and here at Aysgarth we pride ourselves on the fact that the boys spend half of the day in academic pursuits leaving the other half for creative, physical and enjoyment based activities.


Aysgarth aims to excel at providing an enjoyable, inspiring and relevant education, which is the best all-round preparation for its pupils to thrive at the major public schools and beyond.

Heritage & Archives
