Our Principal

Mr Robert Dudley-Cooke

Our aim is to be an outstanding School both pastorally and academically – the first choice for children, parents and staff.

Herington House School is an Independent Preparatory School located in the heart of Shenfield, walking distance from Shenfield Railway Station. 

Herington House School is guided by a well-defined philosophy that endorses a devotion to learning and commitment to excellence. We are proud of our school community, where diversity and differences are valued, respected and celebrated by all and contribute to the richness of school life. This is embodied in our motto:

We offer a nurturing ‘whole child’ approach to education for boys and girls aged 3-11. We firmly believe that each child has something special to offer, and we will find it.

“At Herington House you feel safe
because the teachers look after you
and are really caring, especially 
when you’re not feeling well.”

“The small class sizes makes it
easier for the teachers to teach 
and help us with our work.”

“At Herington House School
we’re all really good friends,
like a big family.”

“In lessons there is a balance
of discipline and fun.”
