Christ's Hospital is a remarkable school and offers pupils from all walks of life the opportunity to achieve their full academic potential and to develop their interests and talents in a caring and stimulating environment.

Christ's Hospital was founded in London in 1552 and moved to Sussex in 1902. It has a rich history which is evident in many facets of school life. The most obvious is the Tudor uniform which is worn with great pride by our pupils. For all that, we have a decidedly modern outlook and our focus is very much on providing our pupils with the best possible preparation for the future.

Academic expectations are high and pupils are given every encouragement to develop a love of learning and to pursue academic excellence.

The School has an impressive history of high academic achievement with an average of 10 pupils each year taking up places at Oxford or Cambridge, and 98% of leavers going on to top Universities in this country and abroad.

Although Christ's Hospital is predominantly boarding, our day pupils enjoy exactly the same routine as the boarders, apart from sleeping at school. The extended boarding week allows pupils to make the most of the vast array of day, evening and weekend activities on offer and helps foster the strong sense of community within the school.

If you would like to learn more about the unique opportunities that we can offer your son or daughter, please contact us 01403 246555 for an invitation to attend one of our termly Open Mornings, or to arrange a personal tour.

We look forward to welcoming you to our remarkable school.
