The Senior School
Bishop’s Stortford College Senior School is, in the words of ISI inspectors, ‘an exceptional learning community’ - a place where children, as they enter the teenage years, have wonderful opportunities to become confident, well-rounded and interesting young men and women who take with them the qualifications, skills, adaptability and respect for others to thrive in the world beyond school.
Ensuring this process of all round growth – academically, morally, spiritually, athletically and creatively – is our aim. 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.
Senior School pupils enjoy increasing freedom in choosing how they spend their time, with our highly regarded and extensive activity programme, in addition to outstanding sport, music, visual art and drama opportunities, the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme and numerous clubs and societies. The breadth of opportunity is simply stunning even by independent boarding school standards.
The College Houses are a central part of life for all Senior School day pupils and boarders. The strong sense of belonging and level of care between pupils across the year groups, and between pupils and staff, make Bishop's Stortford College a very special place to be.
