Based on the outskirts of a picturesque market town, Bishop's Stortford College is one of the UK’s top 20 performing independent co-educational schools and consistently among the top 100 independent schools in the country.
In their March 2017 Inspection, the college received the ISI headline judgements ‘excellent’ in all four sections – the highest accolade achievable. As three schools in one, the college is large enough to provide an exceptional range of opportunities, whilst each part is small enough for pupils to be known, valued and nurtured as individuals.Our boarding community, fully integrated with day pupils, benefit from some of the best boarding facilities in the region. The infectious enthusiasm, imagination and dedication of college staff, in partnership with parents, enables pupils to grow into happy, well-rounded, skilful and caring young people equipped and ready for the adventures and opportunities life has to offer. Breadth of experience is naturally woven into daily life.
Pupils can, and do, pursue high academic standards whilst enjoying and succeeding, in many other interests. Every pupil is encouraged, taught and challenged to fulfil his or her true potential, by being immersed in an environment of discovery and wholehearted participation. Teachers strive to allow time and space for academic work to be balanced by sport, music, drama, and a diverse choice of other activities including the Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme in the senior school, service to the community and opportunities for leadership. The college also nurtures an appreciation and love of creativity that often remains with pupils for the rest of their lives.
Ultimately Bishop’s Stortford College aims to enable pupils to contribute constructively to society and play a full role in it, whatever their chosen path; the College can truly support their claim ‘We Build Confidence for Life’.
