Senior School Heads Love Summerhill

From Mr Greg Theron, (formerly) Head, Penryn College
“We find Summerhill pupils to be pleasant, hard-working and enthusiastic and they achieve a great deal when they get to Penryn. Academically they are well-prepared and they are always able to cope with the rigours of College life.

With this combination of attributes, they do well at Penryn and fill a disproportionately large percentage of leadership and achievement positions.”



From Mr Austin Clarke, Head, Uplands College

“One is immediately struck by how confident Summerhill pupils are and relaxed in the company of adults. They are able to converse and make meaningful contributions.

The Summerhill pupils integrate well with their peers, have a sound work ethic and make a meaningful contribution to the college.


Summerhill Prep School strives to create a nurturing environment and to produce self-confident, capable and motivated children and to promote the sound values and principles of a dynamic democratic society. Group work, effective communication, responsible decision-making and entrepreneurial skills are encouraged.

Dedicated teachers offer a broad range of challenging subjects based on the Revised National Curriculum Statement, enhanced by the internationally-acclaimed Singapore Curriculum approach. Summerhill is a trailblazer in this regard. You can read more about this exciting new way of learning here: The results are astonishing.
