“Ballard has given me everything I need so that I can go forward and achieve anything I want”

2017 GCSE leaver

You are invited to our Summer Open Morning on Saturday 15th June.  This is an event with a difference as our parents and pupils gather for an informal morning showcasing our creativity across all pillars of Ballard: STEM, arts, sport and life. This year’s theme is the New Forest with a range of forest related activities including Forest School, bushcraft, forest animals, and forest heritage.

On arrival at 10.00am there will be an opportunity to meet key staff and other parents and a short talk from the Headmaster before you get a chance to take a tour around the activities.

To reserve your space, please contact our registrar team:

Ballard is a co-educational family school with no entrance exams and we look to the individual child and offer them a bespoke education within our nurturing environment. Our diverse curriculum is taught by inspirational teachers which gives a great grounding for every child from the ages of 2-16.  Our facilities include a purpose built Performing Arts Centre, full sized multi-use Astro pitch, music school, PE hall, dance studio, separate Pre-Prep department and the benefit of 32 acres of grounds, pitches and woodland.

Our open events are informal, although pre-registration is not needed, it allows you to avoid form-filling on the day.

Some recent parent  and student comments

“To say that all of you go beyond your duties as teachers is an understatement…”

“The school community runs very deep and the children across all year groups are encouraged to ‘mix and mentor’ which clearly delivers a loyalty within the school community.”

“My daughter had a bespoke service from Ballard. They optimised her strengths and underpinned the areas that weren’t so strong and she has become a happy, confident and engaging teenager ... couldn’t ask for more.”

“Ballard should not be overlooked by parents wanting a thorough and bespoke education for their children. There is nowhere that offers each individual pupil the opportunity to fulfil their own potential in a lively, sincere environment, rich in the consistent achievement of outstanding results.”

“Our only regret is that we did not send him to Ballard much earlier.”

“They have grown into kind, honest, considerate, hard working individuals and we know that we have Ballard to thank for that.”

"We have lovely people at our school."

"I like the different teachers we have"

"I love playing with my friends."
