The Curriculum

The academic curriculum offers a mix of GCSEs, A-levels, IB and Pre-U qualifications. We are unashamedly academic – with 98% of pupils moving on each year to the leading universities in this country and abroad. 

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

Christ’s Hospital offers something very distinctive by providing an independent education of the strongest quality
to children with academic potential, from every corner of society in a compassionate and sympathetic environment. Pupils’ fees are assessed according to family income. Therefore, it is a child’s ability and potential to benefit from a Christ’s Hospital education that determines their selection.

Outstanding Characteristics

By providing first class, free or supported education to talented young people Christ’s Hospital continues
to transform lives in a way that no other educational establishment in the UK can match.
