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. However, many key lessons are learnt beyond the classroom and Christ's Hospital’s broader curriculum opportunities are extensive.
The pupils at Christ’s Hospital receive much of the very best an independent education can provide – the journey they make from the time they arrive to when they leave is enormously rewarding.
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 students live and study at the School – they are called boarders – 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 for boys and girls in the UK. Full boarding is a big advantage to international pupils because it means that they live and study with friends 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 our students go on to the top performing universities in the UK (the Russell group universities) or internationally.
