Grittleton House School is a small, family-run independent school and children's daycare provider situated in the village of Grittleton near Chippenham in Wiltshire. The school is co-educational with around 300 pupils and toddlers aged 2-16.

Grittleton House is non-selective and therefore classes are made up of pupils with a wide range of abilities. It offers pupils small classes and claims to teach traditional family values, courtesy, consideration for others, and responsibility for oneself.

It was built as a country house by James Thomson between 1832 and 1856. It is a Grade II* listed building.[1]
