At A Glance

Christ’s Hospital is an independent co-educational boarding and day school of 900 pupils with an equal mix of boys and girls aged 11-18. The School is located in West Sussex in the south east of England. It is situated in stunning countryside between London and Brighton, 20 miles south of London Gatwick and 38 miles from London Heathrow. The School is fortunate in having its own mainline railway station with regular trains to London, Gatwick Airport and the South Coast.


Christ’s Hospital is unique for a UK independent boarding school in that it offers more bursary places than other schools. This stems from our founding charter as a charitable school. School fees are paid on a means tested basis, with substantial subsidies paid by the School, so that pupils from all corners of society are able to have a high quality, independent boarding school education that would otherwise be beyond their means.


Main entry points are at 11+, 13+ and 16+.  The School offers iGCSE, GCSE and in the Sixth Form, a choice of A Levels, Cambridge Pre U and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses.


The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) has confirmed all-round excellence at Christ’s Hospital.
