Set in a beautiful 45 acre Surrey site, the School enjoys excellent facilities and an aspirational learning environment. Gordon’s is recognised by HM Chief Inspector of Schools as one of Britain’s finest non-selective schools, with circa 840 students including 200 residential boarders and a thriving sixth form.  In 2017, the percentage of students achieving five or more GCSE grades A* to C, including English and mathematics, was 92%. The A*-C pass rate at A-Level was 90%, with 72% of the grades A* to B. These results rank Gordon's amongst the top non-selective schools in England for progress and attainment.
