More House School
More House School boasts over 70 years' experience in helping boys who may be bright, but are not thriving in mainstream schools due to specific learning difficulties. All 390 boys who attend More House are individually timetabled with many receiving support through the on-site Learning Development Centre and through the curriculum which challenges each of their strengths while helping them to fulfil their academic potential. The school has been judged outstanding by Ofsted.

Founded in 1939, More House School is an independent day and boarding school with more than 460 boys on roll, making it the largest specialist school of its type in the country. Many boys travel long distances to attend the school, of those 460 boys nearly half have a statement of Special Educational Needs or Education and Health Care Plan and funded by their local authority. More House is currently used by 30 local authorities for placements.
More House School, Frensham, is recognised as a national centre of excellence for the education of boys who are intelligent, but who would fail to achieve their potential within a mainstream environment because of a specific learning or language difficulty. Despite each of the 460 pupils facing significant barriers to their social and academic progress, including diagnoses of Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, speech and language processing disorders and associated social communication difficulties, ADD and ADHD, More House pupils yearly achieve GCSE and A Level results significantly above the national averages.
We are dedicated to helping boys with a range of learning difficulties and styles, who require a small, supportive learning environment in which to flourish.
