What says..

One of the most expensive day schools in the UK. You can feel the thinking going on here. Academically, a very special place. As one boy put it, 'The real pleasure about being here is going off-piste academically.' Another said, 'The quality of the teaching is beyond compare. It really pushes you further.' Parents agree.

What the school says...

St Paul's 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 founder's 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 pupils 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 St Paul's Juniors), 13+ and 16+.

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,...
