Welcome to Salterford House School, where we believe that children thrive on an all round education within a caring and supporting environment.

We are an independent preparatory school on the outskirts of Nottingham, with a family feel and passion for enabling children to do their best. Our pupils learn in a safe, rural environment where they are able to enjoy our beautiful surroundings and develop through learning, discovery and guided curiosity.

We strive to develop their talents and personalities in a positive and productive way throughout the school, giving them a superb grounding for the years ahead.

We are a thriving school with over 100 pupils aged 3 to 11. Since opening our doors in 1981, we have continued the belief that every child matters, having small class sizes to encourage and nurture in addition to teaching music, sport and drama as well as the curriculum subjects to ensure a wide range of experiences.

Salterford House school is set in over four acres, surrounded by woodland.

Many of our current pupils have joined the school on the recommendation of others, or following one of our regular open days. Whilst we hope you gain a flavour of the school from our website, you are invited to arrange a visit to Salterford House to see our unique setting for yourself.

We look forward to welcoming you,


Mrs Marla Venables

Head Teacher
