What the school says...
Ellesmere College is a fully co-educational school set in the beautiful English countryside. Founded in 1884, the school offers students between the ages of 7 to 18 the chance to achieve success in both their studies and a wide range of activities, including music, art, sport and drama, in a happy, friendly atmosphere.
Ellesmere College is a school proud of its distinguished history, but as a school we certainly do not live in the past. We are a vibrant and forward looking school offering excellent opportunities to all in the student community. An Ellesmere
education is a preparation for living adult life successfully, considerately and with a sense of personal fulfillment. The school places great value upon the individual. Ellesmere’s aspirations for its pupils are higher than simply passing examinations – however vital examination success is – but the value of developing the whole person is fundamental in the school’s philosophy.
The school prepares students for their GCSEs, IGCSE's, A-Levels, BTEC and the International Baccalaureate, as giving them the opportunity to enjoy an award winning co-curricular opportunities from full sports academies, arts , music. leadership and a global engagement programme.
