What says..

It was a joy hearing the rugby-playing sixth former, who had set his sights on Cambridge, wax lyrical about the music department and refer with awe and respect to a recent school production of A Christmas Carol as ‘very professional - dead arty and stuff’. Founded 1525 by Roger Lupton, a provost of Eton, it nestles amidst the fells in the beautiful old town of Sedbergh. It has a huge campus with gorgeous old stone buildings.

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.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head master

Since 2010, Andrew Fleck (geology at Nottingham; MA at Sussex), a period which he describes as the happiest years of his career.

The uniqueness of Sedbergh, he suggests, lies in its location (cocooned within the rolling hills of the Cumbrian countryside) and the fact it is a close and supportive full boarding community (in other words, a vast distance away from youth-distracting razzamatazz and the potentially toxic influences of flashy urban street corners). So while extracurricular activities are of great importance within any school, they are of colossal importance here. The rural setting effectively means pupils must draw on inner resources and ‘go find’ interesting things to do in rain or shine (not difficult, frankly, out of the mind-boggling array of sport, performance activities and societies on offer).
