STEP INTO THE MOST EXCITING SCHOOL IN ENGLAND

DRIVEN BY A PASSION FOR CREATIVITY AND ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

 

Hurtwood combines the best elements of the traditional boarding school system with the best elements of the modern sixth form college to create a wholly unique and individual establishment.

While breaking new ground educationally, it has retained traditional values and has created an inspirational but safe stepping-stone between school and university.

This is a school driven by a passion for creativity and a respect for academic rigour, a small school with a distinctive voice which is less formal and less institutional than traditional public schools.

Hurtwood prides itself on the warmth of its relationships and its ability to engage closely with the hopes and aspirations of each individual student.

NEW STUDENTS NEW CHALLENGES

The students who come to Hurtwood House have usually been happy and successful at their former school, but they are now ready for fresh challenges.

They have reached an age when they feel that the learning methods and the lifestyle that worked for them when they were younger are no longer going to be as effective for them in the sixth form. At Hurtwood, they discover an intellectual and social environment closer to that of a university.

They find a sixth form which offers them a wider range of subjects and more flexibility of choice; a sixth form which is exceptionally strong academically with an outstanding record of A-level results placing Hurtwood consistently in the top five of all the co-ed boarding schools in the country.

One of England's most successful and exciting public schools.

All the students find Hurtwood a particularly easy school to join from a social point of view, because half of the school is new every year. The new students all arrive together and do not face the problem of joining a community where friendships have already been established over a period of many years.

LEARNING TO MAKE THE 
RIGHT CHOICES

 

Learning to make the right choices in life is an essential part of personal development. So many large schools have impersonal systems which stifle students’ individuality, their initiative and their creativity, and seek to push them down well-trodden paths into established channels.

 

At Hurtwood, guided by caring and experienced teachers, and in a carefully supervised and supportive environment, students are given the room to express themselves and encouraged to challenge the predictable.

 

 

Challenge is an important part of what Hurtwood is all about. Students learn to cope with change, to discover themselves and to learn how to get the best out of themselves. It is through rising to these challenges that their characters and personalities are shaped and defined.

When you visit, you are likely to be struck by the maturity of Hurtwood students and by the fact that they are already moving forward in life as happy, well-rounded and self-confident young adults.
