Meet the Head

Welcome to Christ’s Hospital. This remarkable School 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.

Our magnificent red brick campus provides the perfect backdrop for the busy lives that our pupils lead. As you would expect from one of the foremost boarding schools in the UK, the facilities are outstanding and the huge range of co-curricular activities on offer is second to none.

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.

Christ’s Hospital prides itself on the outstanding young men and women who move on each year. Friendly, forthright and entirely unpretentious, our school leavers take with them the confidence and the skills that they will need to achieve success at university and to make a worthwhile contribution to society in later life.

If you would like to discover why a Christ’s Hospital education is like no other and the unique opportunities that we can offer your son or daughter, please contact us on 01403 246555 to find out more.

We look forward to welcoming you to our remarkable School.

John Franklin, Head Master
