Welcome to Woodcote House School for boys

Woodcote House in Surrey is the ultimate family-run boarding and day school. Owned by the Paterson family since 1931, we provide a 'home from home' for 100 boys between the ages of 7 and 13. Our role is to nurture and to educate, and we believe we can do this best by providing the secure and happy environment boys need in order to thrive, learn and truly enjoy their precious childhood years.

Many aspects of life at Woodcote are unique to our school. Courtesy towards others, high standards of personal conduct and a balanced education really matter at Woodcote. Naturally it gives us great pleasure when 'Old Boys' and their families endorse our somewhat 'old fashioned' values and decide to send a new generation to join us.

This website and our prospectus offer a taster of daily life at Woodcote. We do encourage visits from prospective parents at any time during the school year and we warmly invite you to contact us so that you can experience Woodcote 'at work'.
