The feel of Bishop’s Stortford College is always forward-looking, recognising from the start the sort of world our pupils will be entering and the skills they need. We are a hard-working, down-to earth, and highly successful community.

We know each child as an individual and are ambitious for them to be happy, resilient, and to achieve their full potential.

Qualifications and Qualities

Academic excellence is a top priority for us. Our dedicated and talented teaching staff will fire your child’s imagination, always going the extra mile to give them the skills they need to develop and thrive.

We are an academically selective school, with our value-added scores amongst the best in the country. Therefore, it is no surprise that Oxbridge or a top university, in the UK or abroad, becomes a realistic ambition for our pupils.

The down-to-earth atmosphere at the College, is the perfect launch pad for outstanding achievement.

Breadth and Balance

Finding the right school for your child gives them a chance to develop and thrive and offers them the best possible future. Each pupil experiences their own journey, discovering talents new to them as well as developing existing skills.

In our Pre-Prep and Prep Schools, life is wonderfully busy and there are so many opportunities on offer, inside and outside of the classroom. This helps to build resilient, open-minded, and happy learners. Everyone quickly finds things they enjoy and become good at. Being good at things and enjoying doing them becomes the norm. 

In our Senior School we fire our pupils’ imaginations, allow them to explore opportunities, and give them the skills to succeed and be happy in whatever field they choose.

When they leave us, they will be well prepared for life beyond school, with a combination of abilities, some social, some academic and with choices – choices as to where to direct their efforts and enthusiasm. They will also have the confidence of knowing how to function in the new world that we are all going to embrace.

Community spirit

Underpinning all of this is a unique community spirit that enables each pupil to succeed, and to be happy doing so. In our increasingly complex world, we offer an environment that is inclusive, caring, and kind. Here there is a togetherness where none of us is as important as all of us.

All pupils belong to a House. This is where learning to collaborate, to be a team player, to become friends with diverse, different people, happens. This is how we build confidence in each individual.

Academic excellence, balanced with personal growth, strong values, and qualities of decency and kindness, is what a modern education for today must offer. We do indeed have the huge campus with wonderful facilities. We are a through school from four to 18 years. We have the academic track record which is already first-rate and is aiming ever higher, but we do not look like most schools of our type. We are different in some important ways.

We are the modern face of independent education.
