in 1883, the school has just celebrated its 125th anniversary. It is as popular
as it has ever been, and it was recently described as 'educationally
exceptional' in a national newspaper.
We are a major 7 day a week boarding schools in the North-East, which is an
unspoilt and beautiful part of the UK. Over 95% of our pupils in the senior
school are British (including over 85% of our boarders). We have a further 190
pupils in our prep school.
Whilst we are proud of the full and varied education we offer, above all we are
proud of our academic results. Over the last 10 years have seen record results
at A level and GCSE. Every year our leavers go on to study at some of the top
universities including Oxford and Cambridge.
We are a top traditional British boarding school, but we value having
international students in our boarding community. They are fully integrated
into the life of the school. Recently a House Captain of our senior boys'
boarding house was from Holland and a Deputy Head boy from the Ukraine. We
currently have students from USA, India, China, Hong Kong, South Korea and
Germany. We keep numbers from each country low so that overseas pupils benefit
from speaking English as much as possible. ESL is provided free of charge for
As a full 7 day a week boarding school we are unique in so
much as only 15% of our 200 boarders are from overseas. Furthermore we are
situated in our own 50 acre estate in an area of outstanding natural beauty in
the UK. It is a very safe environment, only a 10 minute walk from the beautiful
market town of Barnard Castle. Our fees (at under £20,000 per year) are
'uniquely' good value as we are actually one of the top boarding schools in the
north. ESL ist free. Our academic results have hit record highs : 69% A-B grade
at A level, and over 50 A*-A grade at GCSE. Outstanding sport, and over 100
activities on offer.
