Christ’s Hospital is a boarding and day school of 900 pupils aged between 11-18, with an equal mix of boys and girls, situated in West Sussex countryside 20 miles south of London Gatwick.
Christ’s Hospital offers pupils the opportunity to achieve their full academic potential and to develop their interests and talents in a caring and supportive boarding school environment.
The Christ’s Hospital campus is nothing short of majestic. From the moment you arrive you’ll see that it is a very special place. Sweeping sports fields, beautiful buildings and our spectacular Quad are immediately visible.
We have 16 boarding houses, two Upper Sixth Form residences, our own purpose-built theatre, modern sports centre, music school and art school. The School has in place an ongoing programme of renovation and rebuilding.
The majority of pupils and teachers live on site, creating a community where pupils are happy and secure, with a wide range of activities on their doorstep. The seven-day week boarding school environment provides the time and space for pupils to develop their interests and talents, and to live and work successfully with others from a diverse range of backgrounds.
Christ’s Hospital welcomes day pupils who are within a commutable distance from the School. Day pupils enjoy all the advantages of a top boarding school with access to an exceptional co-curricular programme.
“I can honestly say, making the bold decision to join Christ’s Hospital for Sixth Form was the best decision of my life. The environment is very welcoming and perfect for productive work hence the fantastic results.” Keenan, Year 13 pupil
“I am involved with every possible music activity available at Christ’s Hospital. I have made it my mission to do as much as I can, and to do it to as high a standard as possible. I play in the Symphony Orchestra, Big Band, Marching Band, and I am in Chapel Choir and Schola Cantorum – amongst other things!” Max, Year 13 pupil
The School is academically selective and each year over 98% of pupils move on to the leading universities.
Pupils’ fees are assessed according to family income, so that 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.
