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 today educates 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 distinguished governing body. In a rural area within the bounds of Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, the school occupies one site of just over 36 acres (15 ha) including extensive playing fields and buildings housing teaching facilities.[1]
