Watch our short film about life at More House School

More House School provides high quality education and pastoral care for boys aged 8-18 who might be bright, but struggle in mainstream schools due to a Specific Learning Difficulty. The school is the largest of its type - there are currently 440 on role - with approximately a quarter of the pupils boarding. Nestled into the Surrey Hills, the school sits amidst beautiful countryside but is just a five minute drive from the centre of Farnham.
