We are delighted to announce that the school has been placed in the UK’s Top 40 co-educational boarding schools, based on A-Level results. We are one of only two West Country co-ed boarding schools in the Top 40, putting us amongst some of the best-known and most selective schools in the country.
The ranking table has been produced for Best-Schools.co.uk by independent body Education Advisers Ltd and measures the number of A* and A grades awarded to students. This further enhances the school’s impressive academic record, for which it has gained an enviable reputation.
The result is particularly pleasing because, unlike many other schools featured in the league table, we are not a highly selective school, and only require a minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade 5 or above for students entering Year 12.
Headmaster, Mr Phillip Stapleton, says “This is a particularly pleasing recognition because the school is not a hothouse but believes that children should be able to develop at their own pace. Coming 35th in the UK shows that parents can have the best of both worlds for their children, a first-class education alongside a healthy and active lifestyle in one of the most beautiful parts of the country.”
