Upton Hall is an impressive building set in 31 acres of mature grounds of outstanding beauty. The grade 1 listed site is steeped in history with parts dating back to medieval times. Teaching takes place in the main house, the converted coach house and stable block as well as a modern purpose-built sports complex. The School grounds are also home to St Michael’s, a Norman church now under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, where the school’s annual harvest festival is held.

The school grounds provide ample space for outdoor recreation and sports. Pupils also benefit from sports fixtures held at other schools. Facilities include an astro pitch, tennis courts and climbing wall, with cricket played at Nether Hertford Cricket Club and swimming taking place off site for selected year groups.

Nursery and Reception pupils attend our on-site accredited Forest School once a week, building confidence and social skills in our outdoor woodland classroom.

Other facilities include well-equipped science laboratories, an ICT suite, DT workshop, music, dance and drama studios.

results with 7.5% of pupils achieving the new top grade 9, compared to the national average of 3.5%. 9% of pupils achieved a top grade 9 result in English or Maths, 57% achieved a grade 7 or above in English and Maths, 79% achieved a “strong pass” at grade 5+ and 93% achieved a “standard pass” at the new grade 4+.

Once again, Quinton House School pupils have outperformed the national average of 67.4% A*-C grades, achieving 83.9% A*-C grades in all subjects excluding Maths and English.

Ella Milner particularly excelled, gaining 6 A*s, 1 A, as well as a grade 7 in English Literature, grade 8 in English Language and grade 9 in Maths. Ella achieved an impressive maximum points in Chemistry and Physics. In addition she achieved a grade A in Additional Maths, equivalent to an AS Level. We’re delighted to welcome Ella back into Sixth Form as a scholar in September to study Maths, Psychology, French and Photography at A level.

Other pupils celebrating an impressive suite of results today were Holly Winterburn, Luke Hiorns-Boddington, Isabel Heath, Elizabeth Slater and Tom Hughes. Both Holly and Tom’s achievements are all the more impressive considering their sport training commitments, Holly being an England basketball player and Tom competing at elite level in the triathlon.

The 2017 GCSE results build on the excellent results seen in previous years. This year, just under a third of grades were at A*-A, compared to the national average of 22.1%.

Catherine Cozens, Headteacher of Quinton House School, said, “It is a pleasure to celebrate with our staff and pupils who have worked so hard to achieve these results. We are extremely pleased with pupils’ English and Maths results in the new grading system and are particularly delighted to have achieved a high level of grade 9 results in Maths.”

We look forward to welcoming pupils back to our Sixth form. Places are still available for September 2017.
