We are a leading co-educational preparatory school for children aged 3-13 years and has been educating children for over 150 years based in Suffolk. The children are not only challenged academically to develop a love of learning, but also that they leave the school having developed intrinsically important and recognisable characteristics that will support them for the rest of their lives. In addition to this, OBH offers a wide range of sports on site with tennis firmly placed into the heart of the school programme. Currently, around 75% of the school children on site partake in a form of tennis per week.
