Pupils and parents alike rate the school highly - The Good Schools Guide

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 and prepares pupils to be ready for life

High quality and enthusiastic teaching is supported by superb academic, sporting, and boarding facilities including: a recently built library, two theatres, a large dance studio with a professional grade high-sprung floor, a superb indoor and outdoor tennis centre, 25m pool and state-of-the-art golf facilities with an indoor TRACKMAN® swing analysis suite. A new technology centre will be built in 2021 and will feature exciting programmes in Robotics, Design Technology, and Digital Technology.


The Arts Centre Sports and activities are an integral part of our offerings, and academic excellence is supported by individualised attention and encouragement. High performance programmes in football, tennis, golf and swimming give athletes the opportunity to focus both on their sport and education at this important time in their development

Recent ISA inspections have rated our Senior School teaching, pastoral care, and boarding as “Excellent”. We offer a broad range of GCSE and A level subjects and leavers progress to top universities in the UK and abroad.
