What the school says...

Churcher’s College is an Independent day school for boys and girls from 3 – 18 years of age offering Nursery, Junior, Senior and Sixth Form education. With around 865 pupils in the Senior School and 225 pupils in the Junior School (excluding the Nursery) of approximately equal numbers of boys and girls, Churcher’s College enjoys recognition as one of the most accomplished independent, co-educational day schools in the country.
The school is hosted on two campus sites in Hampshire enabling the Junior School and Nursery pupils to flourish in their own beautiful grounds in Liphook, whilst maintaining close links to the Senior School and Sixth Form located in nearby Petersfield. Both sites offer on-site playing fields and unrivalled facilities, providing the comfort and opportunities of an open, healthy environment.
Churcher’s College offers the widest range of experiences and the opportunity to be the best. The school has received independent acknowledgement for its academic success, creative arts, performing arts, adventurous activities and sporting achievements.

We aim to nurture children into educated informed, socially responsibility and respectful citizens ready to succeed in life.
