What says..

Having survived the Great Plague, the Fire of London, the Civil War and the 20th century, St Paul's can afford to relax and enjoy its own success. 'Academic rigour and loose ties' was how one parent described St Paul's today, and this was echoed by the high master: 'It has the feel of an über-grammar school. It's more...

What the school says...

St Pauls is an independent school offering an outstanding, all-round education for gifted boys aged 13 to 18 years. We draw upon our long and outstanding tradition to equip them for their future, intellectually, spiritually and physically.
Our pupils reflect the diversity of London and we are true to our founders commitment to educating boys 'from all nacions and countres indifferently'.
We have high expectations of our pupils, in terms of their academic commitment and attainment, and their personal qualities of respect, tolerance, kindness and service.
Our unique tutoring system provides boys with individual pastoral care which promotes their independence while offering support and guidance, and which informs and involves parents.
Financial support for the school fees is available for entry at all age-groups, but especially at 11+ (to Colet Court), 13+ and 16+.

Thank the school

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

What The Good Schools Guide says

High master

Since 2011, Professor Mark Bailey (50s). Career has included both academia and education: former head of The Grammar School at Leeds, he has also been a fellow at Cambridge and at All Souls, and professor of late medieval history at the University of East Anglia, with whom he continues to be involved. Found time to be a rugby international (1984 to 1990) and is now president of the Cambridge University Rugby Club. A thoroughly engaging, astute, relaxed and kindly man, the complete reverse of what one might expect of the high master of such a venerable institution as St Paul's. We meet many head teachers who are fonder of their school than of the pupils in it. Professor Bailey, extremely clever himself, still cherishes the achievements of others. A people-person through and through,...
