Sycamore Hall Preparatory School Independent Inspectorate Report
Scottish Literacy ReportScottish Numeracy Report
Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.
Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver
destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.
Sycamore Hall is a nurturing and caring school. The atmosphere is calm and harmonious. Relationships between staff and pupils are based on respect. Pupils learn about and value differences between people, and they are kind to each other. Leaders have high expectations and ambitions for pupils. They ensure that every pupil knows the basics of reading, writing and mathematics well. As a result, pupils achieve well in these subjects. However, the overall quality of education the school provides is not yet good. Pupils behave well and enjoy coming to school. They say that they feel safe and know that teachers are there for them if they need help. Bullying is rare. When bullying does happen, staff act quickly to sort it out. Parents are hugely supportive and have lots of good things to say about the school. They believe it provides a safe place, where children enjoy learning and achieve well. One parent said, ‘School is like a family, and students learn in a happy homely environment.’ However, leaders know safeguarding policy and staff training need to be brought up to date with the latest requirements. Leaders have not ensured that all of the independent school standards have been met.
Sycamore Hall Preparatory School Parent Reviews

It was the best choice I ever made to send my child to Sycamore Hall. Small classes, individual education programs to meet the needs of the children. My son has made amazing progress academically, socially and emotionally, and is a wonderfully rounded young man.
The teachers are truly wonderful, professional, knowledgeable and caring, always going over, above and beyond to support the children and their families.
If you are looking for a fantastic all round prep school, Sycamore Hall is certainly my first choice and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

2015 GCSE RESULTSImportant information for parents
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
Schools can upload their full GCSE results by registering for a School Noticeboard. All school results data will be verified.
