If you want a school with the ‘wow’ factor in abundance, look no further than Christ’s Hospital.
Magnificent sprawling red-brick campus and historic works of art to take your breath away – and if that isn’t enough, the continuing academic success is bound to impress.
Christ’s Hospital has been rated ‘excellent’ in every aspect by the Independent Schools’ Inspectorate.
In 2017 the average UCAS points achieved by a pupil was 136 which equates to AAB.
Headmaster, Simon Reid is clear what makes the school unique: “Many ask why Christ’s Hospital calls itself A School Like No Other.
It is because of our roots, what the school is, what we do, where we come from and what we strive to be.
Christ’s Hospital offers its pupils something very distinctive in UK independent education. As the forerunner in the field of social mobility, Christ’s Hospital is the leading charitable School in the country and an inspiration for other schools wanting to offer bursary assisted places.
Our pupils come from a wide range and diverse mix of backgrounds. We are one of the oldest boarding schools and one of only four coeducational full boarding schools in the country. Before the School moved to Horsham, Christ’s Hospital was originally a London school (1552 – 1902).
We are unashamedly academic – with 98% of pupils moving on to the leading universities in this country and abroad. However, we know that many key lessons are learnt beyond the classroom and Christ’s Hospital’s broader curriculum opportunities are remarkable.
The pupils at Christ’s Hospital receive much of the very best an independent education can provide – the journey they make from the time they arrive to when they leave is often profoundly rewarding, and along the way we support their growing resilience and success as they move on to university and beyond. We delight in their achievements and welcome them back to inspire and encourage current pupils.

Christ’s Hospital is able to offer an unrivalled number of means-tested bursaries. These bursaries range from 5% remission of fees up to and including 100% remission. Pupils’ fees are assessed according to family income, so it’s a child’s ability and potential to benefit from a Christ’s Hospital education that determines their selection.
The school hasn’t been afraid to develop; modern facilities have been built in sympathetic style. Those changes are echoed in the challenging and varied curriculum. A levels are offered alongside the demanding Pre-U qualification and the globally respected International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
One student says:
I fell in love with Christ’s Hospital when I visited during an Open Day and knew it was where I wanted to be. There was such an amazing atmosphere.
Before coming here, I didn’t really enjoy any particular subject; I just did okay at everything. At Christ’s Hospital, I have discovered what I enjoy the most. Drama has been a highlight and I enjoy English, and creative writing.
The school slogan is ‘a school like no other’ and I certainly haven’t seen anywhere else that is quite so beautiful in terms of the grounds and its traditions.”
