‘A child’s mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.’

Hill House is the oldest London school in which every aspect of the daily administration of the school remains in the care and control of the founding family. It is a school that enables children from all over the world to have the opportunity to follow an English curriculum while learning that every nation is equal but different and that peaceful co-existence comes from mutual respect, understanding and consideration for others from diverse backgrounds.

What do the pupils think it is that makes Hill House special?
