Arnold Lodge School is a co-educational independent school in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England, founded in 1864. The school has 293 day pupils, ranging from nursery aged three, to Sixth Form pupils aged eighteen.

The school is based in central Royal Leamington Spa, housed in a mixture of Victorian and modern buildings. Originally a dame school kept by Mrs Worthington at 2 Lillington Place, Leamington Spa, the school was in 1864 taken over by a former Assistant Master at Leamington College, Mr Alfred Kirk. An admirer of Dr Thomas Arnold of Rugby School, he named the school Arnold Lodge School. Originally the oldest prep school in Warwickshire, it extended its admission age to the GCSE years in 2008 and launched Sixth Form in September 2013. The school will celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2014.

The school operates a house system, with houses called Stuart, Saxon, Tudor, and Windsor. The houses compete in sport and the arts as well as in rewards for academic effort and achievement.
