Bute House is an extremely popular and well-regarded girls only prep school. They have a unique, ‘Non-Competitive’ Academic Ethos whereby they do not ever grade their pupils against each other or put them into groups based on ability. Often feedback for work is verbal or written without a grading system. They believe that all children develop at different times and at different paces, so by taking away the means for comparison between each other at such a young age it allows each child to flourish at their own pace. They encourage competitive spirit through sport, where Bute House girls are often very successful and show high levels of collaboration and teamwork. At the heart Bute House they have, ‘Learning Powers’ which are comprised of six different pairs of disciplines, which the children focus on for half a term at a time. For example, ‘Initiative and Independence’ and ‘Curiosity and Originality’. These encourage the development of positive personality traits in the children, such as empathy, perseverance and resilience.
