What kind of school?
Calder House gives children the opportunity to succeed in an environment that is friendly and non-competitive.
"You are to be congratulated on a wonderful school and the excellent job being done on a daily basis."

“All the staff at Calder House were very caring and considerate towards our son while maintaining firm boundaries and high expectations of him and his behaviour.”Former pupil’s parent
Our main playground is grassed and fully enclosed within the quadrangle of buildings that make up our school. In addition to the playground we have a large play barn with a wooden play fort, sandpit and many toys and games. Pupils of every age enjoy the hoppers, bouncers and catching equipment as well as the imaginative games the barn promotes.
We also have a larger grassed area which is used as an extension of the playground for playtime football and hockey games.
Paved areas surround the playground enabling hard surface activities like skipping to take place and there is a volleyball hoop for goal practise attached to the barn.
