Christ’s Hospital is in many ways unique, offering an independent education of the highest calibre to children with academic potential, from all walks of life in a caring boarding and day environment.
Pupils’ fees are assessed according to family income. It is a child’s ability and potential to benefit from a Christ’s Hospital education that determines their selection. This results in a social and cultural diversity that enriches our school community and offers our pupils unique opportunities as we prepare them to take their place in the modern world.
We believe in the benefits of a rounded and balanced education for our pupils. In practice, this means that as well as a challenging academic programme, pupils are also involved in music, art, drama, public speaking, community action and sport.
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.
