Welcome to Hurst Lodge
Hurst Lodge is an independent day and weekly boarding school for boys and girls aged 3-18. Located just south of Ascot, we are set in twenty acres of beautiful Berkshire parkland. At Hurst Lodge we seek to inspire curiosity and imagination and encourage our children to experience a rich cultural life, encompassing creative and performance arts, science and citizenship, developing leadership and teamwork skills and instilling in them a joy of education which we hope will be sustained throughout their lives.
We also believe in the importance of underpinning education by making the connection between ourselves and the natural world real. This is why the Hurst Lodge community of staff and pupils have embarked together on a journey of exploration by undertaking a programme of integrating the school’s operations into the learning experience. We are collaborating in this with the award-winning Eden Project in Cornwall, with whom we will be implementing a carbon and waste reduction programme with special emphasis on reducing and replacing our reliance on fossil fuels and looking at alternative technologies and managing these ourselves. In September 2010 we commenced growing some of our own food and have established a smallholding to give our young people a greater understanding of the things so many take for granted.
