Rupert House Henley today announces another batch of excellent academic achievements at the top end of the school.

Headteacher Clare Lynas said: "We are extremely proud to announce that every one of the girls in Year 6 has been successful in securing a place at their chosen senior school, including Cranford House, Pangbourne College, The Abbey School, Pipers Corner, Queen Anne's School, Caversham and St Helen & St Katharine, Abingdon.

"Results like these are the fruits of many years of hard work by both pupils and staff and through these results Rupert House School is able to demonstrate its commitment to developing every individual to their full potential. We continue to produce rounded and accomplished young people, ready for their next step in life.

"Not only were they successful in school selection, but Rupert House girls also achieved 18 scholarship awards to several very academic schools. I am very proud of our pupils - and my staff - for gaining all these awards."�

Mrs Lynas added that Rupert House was holding an open morning on Saturday, March 21, from 10am to noon. "We look forward to welcoming you through our famous blue front door where you will immediately experience the warmth and friendliness that defines Rupert House.

"Come and see our thriving school in action. Every child is an individual and with small classes, we are able to give quality time to support, enrich and extend every child's achievements.

"We will be happy to show you around and you will be able to experience the atmosphere and meet the pupils at Rupert House."�

Rupert House Preparatory School is a happy, thriving, day school set in the heart of Henley, having served the town and community for more than 70 years.

It is taking registrations for the academic year 2015-2016, although some groups are over-subscribed.

As well as the enviably strong academic record highlighted by its recent results, the school has an amazing ICT suite equipped with the latest technology, including Apple Macs and iPads. It has also invested heavily in its games provision.

The school benefits from a flourishing music and performing arts department where all pupils are encouraged to play a musical instrument and sing. Girls in Years 3 and 4 benefit from learning on a class set of violins.

There is a wide range of extra-curricular activities before, during and after-school to broaden the children's horizons.

Peripatetic teachers offer tuition in piano, cello, violin, harp, viola, saxophone and flute and there is a thriving drama department that uses Henley's home of live theatre, the Kenton Theatre, for its productions.
