If you want a school with the ‘wow’ factor in abundance, look no further than Christ’s Hospital.
Christ’s Hospital has been rated ‘excellent’ in every aspect by the Independent Schools’ Inspectorate.
Christ’s Hospital is one of the oldest boarding schools in the UK and one of only four co-educational full boarding schools. The advantage of full boarding is that all pupils stay at school twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. On Saturday mornings there are lessons followed by a weekend programme of sport, co-curricular activity and entertainment.
Christ’s Hospital is academically strong – with 98% of pupils moving on to the leading universities worldwide. Many key lessons are learnt beyond the classroom and Christ’s Hospital’s broader curriculum opportunities are extensive.
What is so special about Christ’s Hospital is the extent of the resources on offer: 24/7 teachers, supported prep sessions, an extensive range of activities including societies like the medics group, plus a Sixth Form centre to help with university applications as well as extensive and impressive sports facilities.
When pupils start at Christ’s Hospital they are encouraged to join in and to have a go, to discover new hobbies, to make use of the wonderful facilities on site and to ensure they get the most out of their time at the School.
The school hasn’t been afraid to develop; modern facilities have been built in a sympathetic style. Those changes are echoed in the challenging and varied curriculum. A levels are offered alongside the Cambridge Pre-U qualification and the globally respected International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
Introduction to Christ’s Hospital
Christ’s Hospital is a school that educates girls and boys from age 11 to age 18. Almost all (95%) of the pupils live and study at the School and they stay during the week and also over the weekends as well. Christ’s Hospital is therefore known as a “full boarding” school and is only one of four co-educationally full boarding schools in the UK. Full boarding is a big advantage to international pupils because it means that they live and study alongside the UK pupils the whole time they are at school and not just during the week.
Christ’s Hospital is an academically strong school and all its pupils follow a traditional academic programme with IGCSEs or GCSEs taken in Year 11. Pupils in Years 12 and 13 have the choice of studying either A levels or the International Baccalaureate. Over 98% of pupils go on to the top performing universities in the UK (the Russell group universities) or internationally.
