It is my great privilege as the Headteacher of Carleton House Preparatory School to welcome you to our school website.
There can be little doubt that choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. So why choose Carleton House?
Our school motto, ‘They can because they think they can’ reflects the aspirations and achievements of every child who comes to us. We are an inclusive Catholic school committed to our faith, welcoming all denominations of girls and boys aged 3-11.
Carleton House is an independent preparatory school in Liverpool and was established by a group of parents in the early 1970s in response to the closure of its forerunner school, Woolton Hall Preparatory School. The school was established to preserve the traditions and values of a unique Catholic Preparatory School. From the beginning we have been committed to both academic excellence and the creation of a positive and affirming pastoral environment.
We recognise the unique value of all our children and focus on helping them to develop their talents and potential. We are more than a place of learning. We are a place of growth, discovery and celebration. Above all we are a family – a diverse, welcoming community rooted in our core faith values. Since opening in 1974 at Lyndhurst Road, Mossley Hill in Liverpool, we have gone from strength to strength, faithful to our traditions and founding values.
