Key Stages

The best education is a well-rounded one. We offer a wide ranging curriculum, from academic work to a variety of events and opportunities both in and out of school

As Hertford’s only co-educational independent school for ages 2-11, Duncombe Private School offers structured learning in a happy and nurturing environment, where every child feels valued, secure and part of a community. We provide an educational journey for children that starts at Duncombe Treetops Pre-School, continues through  Reception and Lower School, before concluding in the Upper School – with each stage structured for continued growth and preparation for secondary school.

Throughout all key stages, our exceptional teaching staff support your child’s ongoing personal development and growth, no matter their passion. Whether academia, sport, or music, we have the resources in place to ensure that they are given all the opportunities to excel.
