What the school says...

Sevenoaks School (HMC) is an independent, co-educational boarding and day school, set in 100 acres on the edge of Sevenoaks in Kent.

Founded in 1432, Sevenoaks provides academic excellence with a strong pastoral and co-curricular emphasis and a global dimension inspired by the International Baccalaureate. There are around 1000 pupils, including international students from over 30 countries and about 350 boarders. We are a selective school, and welcome enthusiastic pupils ready to get involved in all the opportunities we offer.

Sevenoaks has a reputation for exploring new ideas. We have taught the IB for 30 years and were the first HMC school to offer the IB Diploma Programme exclusively. Between 30 and 50 students accept places Oxford or Cambridge every year and an increasing number go to American universities.

There is a strong emphasis on the co-curriculum and pupils are also involved in community service.
