The Curriculum

The academic curriculum offers a mix of GCSEs, A-levels, IB and Pre-U qualifications. Academic expectations are high and pupils are given every encouragement to develop a love of learning and to actively pursue academic excellence.

Games & The Arts

Art, music, drama and sport are all strong and an integral part of school life. Pupils are given the opportunity to participate in an extensive range of activities. These can be enjoyed and played at all levels, from representing the school locally, nationally and internationally, to enjoying a game with friends. Pupils are encouraged to have a go and try new things unearthing new talents, hobbies and interests.

Pastoral Care

Strong pastoral care, dedicated and attentive staff. Boarders and day pupils feel safe, secure and well looked after within the school’s established house system.

University Places

Ninety-eight per cent of pupils each year go to university. On average 12 per cent go to Oxford or Cambridge. Sixth-form pupils benefit from small classes, highly qualified staff who are passionate about their subjects, weekly lectures given by visiting specialist speakers, extensive range of subjects, a choice of exams at sixth-form plus individual guidance and support through UCAS the university entry system.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We are unashamedly academic – with 98 per cent 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 remarkable.

The pupils at Christ’s Hospital receive much of the very best an independent education can provide – 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. We delight in their achievements and welcome them back to inspire and encourage current pupils.

Our pupils come from a wide range and diverse mix of backgrounds. We are one of the oldest boarding schools and one of only four coeducational full boarding schools in the country.

Explore 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 King Edward VI and Tudor England.

If you are intrigued and would like to visit us we would encourage you to come to our next Open Morning or to give us a call and book a tour of the school.

Outstanding Characteristics

The Tudor uniform, the school’s links with the City of London and the daily lunchtime band parade as well as our unique fee structure  are just a few of the schools unique characteristics.
