Welcome to WHIS

from Dr Daniel Sturdy, Principal and founder.

At Wotton House International School, based in Gloucestershire, our aim is to provide a forward-thinking, holistic education to prepare children aged 10 to 16 for life in tomorrow's world.


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.

You can download our prospectus below or if you would like to find out more about what we do here at our school and what we can offer your child/children, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We are back up and running and teaching our students in our amazing building and grounds.



Feedback from last term's teaching during lockdown:


“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

Please call Sophie Sturdy, Head of Admissions on 07785920484 or email to have a chat.


We will have virtual and physical opportunities to learn more about the school in the coming months.
