Welcome to WHIS
Hello. I'm Dr Daniel Sturdy, the principal and founder of Wotton House International School.
We aim to provide a forward-thinking, alternative education to prepare children for tomorrow's world for pupils aged 11 to 16.
Your children are growing up in a rapidly changing society and face a future which will demand technological know-how alongside traditional skills. We think it's best gathered in an environment which promotes the psychological benefits of natural learning, without the pressures of the normal exam system.
To help achieve this, we're proud to be one of only 15 schools in the UK authorised to offer the Middle Years Programme (MYP) from the International Baccalaureate.
My staff and I are passionate about helping our pupils find their equilibrium. We hope you will share our vision of an education fit for the future.

We're based in the heart of historic Gloucester, less than a mile from the railway station and with easy access to the M5 for Bristol, Cheltenham and further afield.
School closure due to COVID-19
Whilst the school building is closed, learning is very much open. Our teachers are working hard to teach a full timetable and support families with creative distance learning in the ethos of Wotton House School, you can read more on our blog. Our students and parents are very happy indeed with their lessons.
“We think the arrangements you have put in place are great. Our child is engaged and doing just fine – enjoying it even. We have 4 kids of school age all at different schools. The arrangements you have put in place are by far and away the best of the bunch in our opinion.” - parent
“We’ve been in lockdown for over seven weeks now. I think that the school has adapted a great timetable that lets us discuss topics with our classmates on zoom and complete work without having to be on the screen too long. As expected, it took some getting used to, but now everyone at WHIS is enjoying the online learning and we’ve even done some group project work. I like working from home, but also can’t wait to get back to actual school and see everyone in person.” - student
We are still in uncertain times, but we want to look to a hopeful and positive future that come September we will be back up and running and teaching our students in our amazing building and grounds.
We would be very pleased to talk to families considering a new start for September.
We will have virtual and physical opportunities to learn more about the school in the summer months.
