What the school says...
Sedbergh School is a true boarding school with the House system playing a major role in the pastoral care and education of the pupils.
The recent academic results show that a school that excels in music and sport can also excel in its academic achievements and, combined with an almost unequalled extra curricular programme, provides a unique educational experience in an outstanding setting in the Yorkshire Dales.
Sedbergh School provides scholarships, awards and bursaries for talented individuals in music, sport, and for the academically able. Contact the school office or go to the web site for further information. ...Read more
