Claire Belk, Head of Bellan House, talks to pupils

Oswestry School has been granted the honour for its prep school, Bellan House.

Claire Belk, Head of Bellan House, said to become a member schools must reach a very high standard, with strict criteria on teaching a broad curriculum, maintaining excellent standards of pastoral care and keeping staff members’ professional development training up to date.

"Each school must also be committed to delivering an excellent, well-rounded education to the pupils in their care," she said.

"The association believes that schools should be unfettered by government interference and with fewer financial and other resourcing constraints than state schools, ensure that their members’ educational provision is tailored to the needs of the individual children. The safety and welfare of children in these schools is the first and most important responsibility of all members.

"This is a commendable achievement for us and something of which we can feel very justifiably proud. It is confirmation of the high

quality provision and commitment to the wellbeing of our pupils that we know is the intrinsic fabric of the Bellan experience.”
