Papplewick  School, Ascot  Visit: 


This year's group of Papplewick Players, comprising Year 7 and Year 8 boys, put on William Shakespeare's Henry V, a swashbuckling romp through 15th Century Normandy that culminated in the Battle of Agincourt, an epic clash and an English victory that still resonates today.

Raphael Shires played the lead role with understated aplomb and successfully captured the shrewd and determined character of the English King. The cast of twenty-four, resplendent in period costume, tread the boards - a simple stage with Gothic flats - with great enthusiasm, and were nigh on word perfect, reciting their difficult lines in true Shakespearean fashion.  

Headmaster Tom Bunbury said: “It was wonderful to see the boys approach the play with such energy – they did a great job.”

 Papplewick is a day, weekly, and full boarding preparatory school for around 200 boys between the ages of 6 and 13. Situated in 15 acres of land opposite Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, Papplewick has an excellent record for academic achievement and feeds many of the UK’s top independent senior schools including Eton, Harrow, Winchester, Wellington, Stowe and Bradfield.  

In the last two years the school has maintained its academic record, gaining no less than 26 awards to top independent schools, including three King’s Scholarships to Eton. Through its strong commitment to sports, the school also builds skills of teamwork, sportsmanship and responsibility.

As well as academic, sporting and cultural excellence, Papplewick aims to provide boys with the confidence and security they need to fulfil their potential, and the school strives to promote enthusiasm for life, contribution to the community and kindness to others amongst all its pupils. 

A report by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in 2013 remarks that relationships between pupils and teachers: ‘are an outstanding strength of the school and are seminal in creating the strong sense of a mutually supportive and trusting community.’
