As a well-regarded boarding school, Lancing College has a strong tradition in welcoming pupils with parents living all over the world. We offer students a co-educational boarding and day school set in the beautiful South Downs and within an hour of London and close to Heathrow and Gatwick airports. Lancing is a place of scholarship, where pupils learn with integrity. We teach our students to be curious and to think deeply, for themselves and for the right reasons, underpinned by the essential attributes of learning. Our school is not an exam factory and our teachers take delight in going far beyond teaching to the test. Our learning is deeper and our excellent exam results are a wonderful by-product of the more profound and long-lasting scholarly rigour that underpins all that we do.
Ideally located only one hour from central London, Felsted is a co-educational boarding and day school for children aged 4-18, set in a beautiful, safe English village. Felsted has a long and very successful tradition of educating pupils from all over the world. Strong academic results and excellent entry to top universities are annually achieved, via A Levels or the International Baccalaureate Diploma, allowing for a wide scope of academic possibilities. A Gifted and Talented programme extends the most able and experienced EAL (English as an Additional Language) and SFL (Support for Learning) Departments assists those that need extra support.
Mayfield is a leading independent boarding and day school for girls aged 11 to 18, set in the beautiful and easily accessible Sussex countryside, within an hour of central London. Described by the Independent Schools Inspectorate as “outstanding” and by Country Life as “one of the finest schools in the land”, a Mayfield education combines academic excellence, breadth of opportunity and exceptional pastoral care.
Mayfield is successful in unlocking and developing the unique potential and talent of each girl in an inspiring learning environment. Every pupil is accepted for who she is and we instil in her the confidence to find her strengths and build on them. Academic excellence is achieved through an innovative curriculum, which encourages questioning, reflection, creativity and the freedom to learn from mistakes. Whilst Maths and Science are amongst our most popular and successful subjects at A Level, we have a first-class reputation for creativity and excel in the creative and performing arts.
Nestled in the heart of the beautiful cathedral city of Ely in Cambridgeshire, King’s Ely is an independent co-educational day and boarding school built on a fascinating history stretching back over 1,000 years.
We serve the academic and pastoral needs of around 1,000 boys and girls from the age of 2 to 18, with boarders from 8 years old. King’s Ely is located just 15 minutes north of Cambridge and 50 minutes from London King’s Cross, with direct rail links to both. We are also less than an hour’s drive from the scenic North Norfolk Coast.
Whether a student shines in a classroom or laboratory, on a stage, on a pitch or on a mountainside, our school promises an abundance of opportunity for personal development, both academically and socially.
New Hall School
New Hall School is a leading independent boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 3-18. Founded in 1642, New Hall School, Chelmsford, is the oldest Catholic school in the UK that has always taken girls, and the largest Catholic boarding and day school in England.
At New Hall we operate the highly successful ‘diamond model’ structure, i.e. co-education in the Preparatory School (ages 3-11), single-sex education in the Boys’ Division and Girls’ Division (11-16) and co-education in the Sixth Form (16-18). In this way, New Hall provides the best of both worlds: the benefits of a co-educational environment together with the advantages of girls and boys being taught separately at Key Stages 3 and 4.
The Royal Masonic School for Girls
Founded in 1788, and therefore one of the oldest girls’ schools in the country, The Royal Masonic Schoolfor Girls (RMS) has long been associated with the very best of girls’ education, inside and outside the classroom, academically and pastorally. The individual child is at the heart of all that we do.
RMS girls are each distinctive and talented individuals. We know our pupils extremely well, and we learn best how to support each of them, how best to challenge them, and how to develop their specific talents, interests, and potential.
We are extremely fortunate in our location and superb facilities; set in over two hundred acres of the most beautiful parkland, we are just a stone’s throw from the Metropolitan Line at Rickmansworth, and from there just a 30 minute journey into Central London.
