Whilst the top drawer sporting excellence of Sedbergh is undisputed, this school is about so much more than sport. The full boarding community offers all-round opporunities to shine in academics, music, the Arts, whatever your child’s passion or ambition, Sedbergh will inspire, challenge and nurture it. With a leadership team and staff who are notably down-to-earth and approachable, the parents and pupils are at the heart of everything the school delivers on a day-to-day basis. Monitoring and reporting of progress, as well as general communications are, in our view, second to none.
Boarding is popular, even amongst more local families – to go home on a Saturday definitely leads to a feeling you are missing out. Exeats and holidays afford plenty of family time outside the full boarding programme. International pupils come from many countries world-wide. Sedbergh successfully embraces everyone within the school community, whilst maintaining the integrity of a truly British education. Casterton (Sedbergh prep) now feeds into Sedbergh School at age 13, without the need for pupils to attend there to sit Common Entrance making a seamless transition for those parents who love all things Sedbergh.
