The Curriculum

An exciting and broad curriculum specifically designed for boys allows for the integration of academic, physical and social skills to develop independence, both in learning and overall school life.


Games & the Arts

Our impressive facilities, extensive playing fields, specialist Art and DT studio, new performance hall planned, along with our dedicated music teaching spaces enable us to provide a broad, rich curriculum alongside and outstanding extra-curricular activities programme.

Pastoral Care

At Homefield we ensure that our boys are provided with the structure to be confident and self-motivated, with a keen emotional intelligence and sense of moral and civic responsibility. There is a strong and supportive system of pastoral care, anchored by well-established tutorial and House systems. Boys have significant and high quality contact with pastoral teachers and thrive on very clear structure, routines, expectations and reward.

As well as academics, personal interests and passions are cultivated at Homefield; whether they are artistic, linguistic, sporting or social. We challenge our boys and are very ambitious for every one of them. We encourage a young ‘renaissance man’, an enlightened individual who “can do all things if he will”.
