At Hartmann House we believe that developing the optimism and resilience students need to successfully navigate life is as important as academic education, and will enhance their engagement with learn
For an all-round development of a child, the Hartmann House curriculum includes sports. A sufficient amount of school time is devoted to sports.
We have a variety of activities that take place during the term. We are keen to keep you informed on up and coming events you maybe interested in.
