Welcome from the Headmaster

Set in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside, just outside Oxford, Cothill House has been providing an inspirational all-round boarding education and unrivalled opportunities for boys aged 8-13 for 150 years.

Established in 1870, Cothill is recognised globally as one of the country’s leading boys’ boarding prep schools with an exceptional record of preparing boys for the top public schools.

Our aim is to foster every boy’s happiness, confidence and individual passions, helping them to achieve their potential, to cultivate their love of learning and to stimulate their love of life. Cothill boys flourish in an environment where hard work, integrity and originality are both valued and rewarded.
