A Co-Educational Preparatory Day School and Nursery for children from three to eleven years old
Fairstead House has provided a wonderful independent education for three generations of pupils. The school has always adhered to the firm principles set down by its founder Rosamonde Taylor, giving a broad, sound education within a thriving, ‘family’ environment where individuals are recognized and developed in a happy and positive fashion.
The school was founded in 1950 and following Mrs Taylor’s retirement in 1978, ownership of the school passed to a charitable trust. Uniquely one member of each family at the school is a trustee of the school.
The present Headmaster, Gareth Williams took over the reins in 2009 from three previous long serving Heads whose valued contributions have been honoured with the school houses named after them; Taylor, Wedgwood and Buckenham.
