If you want a school with the ‘wow’ factor in abundance, look no further than Christ’s Hospital.

Christ’s Hospital offers its pupils something very rare in UK independent education. The School is one of only four co-educational full boarding senior schools in the country. The advantage of full boarding is that all pupils stay at school twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. On Saturday mornings there are lessons followed by a weekend programme of sport, co-curricular activity and entertainment.

We are unashamedly academic – with 98% of pupils moving on to the leading universities in this country and abroad. However, we know that many key lessons are learnt beyond the classroom and Christ’s Hospital’s broader curriculum opportunities are extensive.

The pupils at Christ’s Hospital receive much of the very best an independent education can provide and the journey they make from the time they arrive to when they leave is often profoundly rewarding, and along the way we support their growing resilience and success as they move on to university and beyond.

Visit our website, uncover the secrets of our School, see our results, our pupils, their historic uniform and, of course, our fascinating history which dates back to Tudor England.
