Art is a powerful tool for children's development, providing a means of expression beyond words. Through creative activities, kids communicate emotions and hone cognitive and emotional skills. Engaging with various materials fosters curiosity and enhances language abilities. Art also promotes social interactions and empathy, building confidence and emotional intelligence. In the realm of art, individuality is celebrated, encouraging self-expression free from judgment. Moreover, art aids fine motor skill development, benefiting academic performance. Integrating art into the curriculum offers a holistic education, nurturing creativity and essential life skills. Art isn't just a hobby; it's an integral part of shaping well-rounded individuals ready for the challenges of tomorrow. read more at,

Discover the Explorer Within at Mowden Hall School!

Why embrace exploration?

At Mowden Hall, we recognise that critical thinking, problem-solving, and the application of knowledge are essential for progress.

In our Pre-Prep, we foster imaginative thinking and cultivate resilience in the face of challenges. Our aim isn't to have students merely adhere to routine timetables; instead, we nurture curiosity, ignite connections between subjects, foster independent thinking, and promote confidence in self-expression. Collaboration is key, as we encourage students to work together to achieve their aspirations.

The spirit of exploration permeates every aspect of our school ethos.
Join us on this exciting journey of discovery - our open week runs from the 4th - 8th March!
