Terra Nova School is a prep school in Cheshire for children from three to thirteen years of age. It began as a school for boys in 1897, and now educates both boys and girls.

Children aged three to seven attend the Pre-Prep School, and pupils aged eight to thirteen attend the Prep School. A charitable trust since 1955, the life and work of the school are overseen by a governing body drawn from varied, appropriate backgrounds. Situated in a rural area near Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, the school is self-contained in more than thirty six acres of land, with extensive playing fields and a number of buildings housing teaching facilities.[1]
