Rookwood School is a coeducational non-selective independent day and boarding school for children aged 3 to 16, located on a rural campus off Weyhill Road in Andover, Hampshire, England. Due to its proximity to the military garrison at Tidworth, Wiltshire, a substantial number of its pupils are children of military personnel or MoD employees.
The school was founded in 1934 as a girls' school and moved to its current site in 1946. Boys were admitted in 1997.
The school has three departments: the Rookery (Pre-School and Pre-Preparatory), Paddocks (Prep School) and Highfield (Senior School).
Rookwood does not have a sixth form. Students who have left the school are known as 'Old Rooks'.
Although most of its pupils are day pupils Rookwood has boarding provisions for a small number of boarders. There are two boarding houses: Beechwood (girls) and Oakwood (boys).
