The Paragon School

Boys (2 - 11)
Girls (2 - 11)

A forward-thinking, co-educational independent school for 3-11 year olds based in beautiful Bath. We believe happy children learn best... and have the results to prove it!

The Paragon is an independent, co-educational day school based in a beautiful Georgian house a mile from the centre of Bath. We have eight acres of our own gardens and woodland and, at our senior school, Prior Park College, access to superb science, sport and other facilities. Catering for more than 270 children aged 3 to 11, we offer a broad curriculum taught in small classes by teachers with a real passion for their subject.

About the school

Academic life at The Paragon cultivates a love of learning and encourages independent and creative thinking. Our results are impressive. Our children consistently achieve well above the national average and many win senior school scholarships. We work closely with Prior Park to support the children's progress and transition to our senior school. But we think our attraction as a school lies in far more than just our academic success.

We see our job as preparing children for life with all its opportunities and challenges - building the high self-esteem, strong moral values and sense of social responsibility that will help them grow into adults that succeed in the widest possible sense. Far from holding parents at arm's length, we encourage you to get involved - to join our Mums' hockey or Dads' football teams or to lead an assembly talking about your job, your hobby or whatever you feel passionate about.

We don't want The Paragon to feel like an 'island' cut off from the real world. Quite the reverse. So we often invite locals - our postman, a nurse or an underwater cameraman - into class and we regularly take children out into the community, for example, to sing carols or give a concert at our local old people's home. By doing so, we help children develop an awareness of the wider world and the confidence to believe that they can play a part, however small, in making it a better place.
