Ellesmere College

Founded in 1884, Ellesmere is a co-educational boarding and day school which offers students from Yrs 3-13 a platform for academic success and personal development. A wide ranging curriculum and activities programme allows each student the opportunity to excel in a range of disciplines - whether the Arts, Music, Drama, Sport or to develop leadership and entrepreneurial skills.

 

The Lower School (Yrs 3-8) provides a happy, secure environment which focuses on individual needs, and helps children grow into confident young people. Middle School students (Yrs 9-11) enjoy a stimulating environment with an extensive academic programme and an even wider range co-curricular opportunities. In Sixth Form - Yrs 12-13 - students have a choice of A levels, BTEC or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.

 

Ellesmere College has a longstanding tradition of supporting serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families and upholds the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant by demonstrating we are an armed forces-friendly organisation by offering a 20% discount on school fees to children of serving Armed Forces personnel.

“Ellesmere College excels in the successful development of the individual to be truly ‘Life Ready’.”

Ellesmere College is one of only 39 schools worldwide to be accredited an HPL World Class School, is the only UK independent school to hold the Arts Mark Platinum Award, and for athletes at all levels, Ellesmere is one of only nine schools in the world to be an accredited Athlete Friendly Education Centre (AFEC) by the World Academy of Sport (WAoS) and athletes can train at every Olympic discipline.


At Ellesmere we believe that developing the individual is more than just passing examinations; a philosophy which is paramount to the continued success of nurturing our students to be truly ‘Life Ready’.
