Welcome to Riddlesworth Hall

Independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3-13 set in the beautiful Norfolk countryside, UK

From the Headmaster

Thank you for taking the time to discover a little more about Riddlesworth Hall School – we firmly believe that your adventure starts here!

Our impressive and welcoming Georgian style four-storey manor house sits proudly in 35 acres of beautiful grounds, woodlands and gardens. Located in the Norfolk countryside, only 1 ½ hours by direct train to London, Riddlesworth Hall welcomes boys and girls aged 3-13.

Our school has a committed staff and wonderful pupils but, please don’t take my word for it alone; I invite you to come and visit us – we would be delighted to welcome you.

Above all at Riddlesworth, we strive to ensure that our children develop a love of learning and make the very most of their abilities, encouraging and challenging them to give their best – and to be the best that they can be. Whether they arrive in our Pre Prep at 3 years old or enter the Prep School slightly later in life, we aim to sow the seeds that will allow our pupils to develop into thoughtful, adventurous and academically ambitious individuals who are enthusiastic about learning and, moreover, enjoy coming into school each day.

I do hope that our website provides all of the information you require and I look forward to meeting with you soon.

With every good wish,


Pete Agate



Riddlesworth Hall welcomes British and International boarders and prides itself on the warmth and good nature that are the overwhelming features of its boarding houses.

Children as young as 7 board at the school which soon becomes their home. Students who do board at the school learn to be confident, self-sufficient and outgoing individuals who bring as much to the school as they take away from it.


We have up to 100% Academic, Sports or Music Scholarships available.


It's so refreshing to find a school that listens to it's parents and pupils. we moved here in September from another independent school and the difference is remarkable.
