Children’s well-being and happiness is at the heart of all we do at Cargilfield.

We are an open and inclusive community, and visitors often comment on the friendly and warm atmosphere they find at the school. School life is never without its ups and downs but we do our best to support children and their families so as to get the most from these important years of development.


After moving from the Nursery, Form teachers are the mainstays of the pastoral system here but there are many other points of contact be it teachers, coaches, GAP students or other adults who see their main focus as the happiness of the children at Cargilfield.

The Headmaster and his wife are also supported by Matron, houseparents, a school nurse, and a number of staff specifically trained in children’s well-being who are on hand to support children as and when the need arrives. We also have a trained school counsellor on hand to help should children or families need further support.

We hope that our ‘open door’ policy helps parents get to know staff well, and feel able to communicate easily and openly with them throughout their child’s school career.

Cargilfield Connected

We can’t welcome you to our grounds right now, but we can offer you a virtual tour and we can answer questions via email or telephone. We especially like to chat face-to-face on a video call.

We have places available for 2021 entry in most year groups.

For now, we hope that this video, presented by our Headmaster, Mr Rob Taylor, will give you a flavour of what life is like here at Cargilfield. Our website and social media channels are kept up to date and hold a wealth of information about our school.

Our Registrar, Fiona Craig is available to contact via email: [email protected] and she will be happy to help you. Thank you
