Bishop’s Stortford College

The Modern Face of Independent Education.

“These days, standing still is moving backwards. Bishop’s Stortford College is not standing still. It is as simple as that.” - Parent

At Bishop’s Stortford College, we have built a wonderful, busy, jaunty, and often highly successful community. This is what makes us tick. Within this environment your child’s personal journey of discovery will begin the moment they join us. 

Our school offers the whole package: breadth of opportunity, depth of academic enquiry, and quality of human values and skills, all within a future-oriented climate of endeavour that recognises tomorrow more than yesterday. 

Mid-way between London and Cambridge in a semi-rural location based on the outskirts of the picturesque market town of Bishop’s Stortford, the College is easily accessible by road, rail, and air – just 10 minutes from Stansted Airport and 40 minutes by train from London and access to all London airports.

Academic qualifications are a prime focus for us, yet we know that qualifications alone will not suffice for a life fully lived. Human qualities of decency and kindness are also a large part of the ticket to success. Together, qualifications and qualities are what an education for today and tomorrow must deliver.


From whatever age your child joins us, life will be busy. They will be doing lots of different things, learning how to prioritise – to take charge of what they are doing and when. But even more importantly, your child will quickly find things they enjoy and become good at.

When they leave us, they will be well prepared for life beyond school, with a combination of abilities, some social, some academic and with choices – choices as to where to direct their efforts and enthusiasm. They will also have the confidence of knowing how to function in the new world that we are all going to embrace.


British Forces families qualifying for the Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA) will be required to pay no more than 10% of fees payable for full boarding places
