An independent school that has been established for more than 40 years, Dudley House School in Grantham, takes a real pride in the care of its pupils.

The school caters for children aged from three to 11 and actively encourages them to develop their talents and personality to the full.

The pupils recently organised their own Red Nose Day events, designing posters, organising the publicity and making biscuits.

Headteacher Jenny Johnson said: “We like to encourage the children to be actively involved in such events, rather than just having the staff take the lead.

“The Red Nose Day was a great success and, for a small school, the children did remarkably well in the amount of money they were able to raise.

“The care we take of the children is acknowledged as outstanding and we often get children who have struggled elsewhere come here and shine, which makes us very proud.”

During the spring term the older pupils have been learning about Antarctica and even built an igloo out of milk bottles. They also went on a trip to Woburn Abbey to look at the different animals there. Next term they will by studying the Egyptians as one of their key topics.

The school provides a range of extra curricular clubs, which vary from term to term. For the spring term the clubs were Dance, Gymnastics, Story Book Writing and 11+.
