Culford School

Co-educational Prep and Senior School

"Pupils and parents alike rate the school highly.” The Good Schools Guide

Culford is an independent boarding and day school for 670 boys and girls aged 2¾ to 18 years and is set in 480 acres of beautiful parkland. Culford is close to the market town of Bury St Edmunds and has good access to Stansted, Gatwick and Heathrow airports.


Culford combines the warmth and individual attention of a small community with the wider educational opportunities of a larger school; our aim is to provide an education that is challenging, enriching and fun. 

High quality and enthusiastic teaching is supported by superb academic, sporting and boarding facilities including a new state of the art library which opened in September 2015; a studio theatre and a superb Indoor Tennis Centre.
High performance programmes for swimming, tennis and golf are offered, as well as an equestrian programme.

Recent ISI inspections rated our Senior School teaching, pastoral care and boarding as “excellent”. We offer a broad range of GCSE and A Level subjects. Prep School pupils are prepared for Common Entrance. In addition, international
students have the option to follow our intensive one year course with dedicated teachers. 

A wide variety of scholarships are available.
