Gordon’s School

Built over a century ago at the express wish of Queen Victoria, as the national monument to General Gordon, Gordon’s School is listed as one of Britain’s outstanding schools by Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector and was judged Boarding School of the Year 2022 in the TES Schools Awards

 

A non-selective, co-educational day and boarding school, set in 50 acres of Surrey parkland, the School is in the top 1% of all schools in England and Wales for progress at A Level. However, the School’s ethos is that a good education is not just about outstanding examination results, but a thorough preparation for life. It is about providing opportunities and experiences so all can find their talents and interests, develop good character, achieve across a range of disciplines, and ultimately develop the confidence to go and make their mark in the world.

“ Gordon’s combines ‘outstanding’ boarding provision alongside some of the very best education in the country.”

There are three main admission points, Year 7; Year 9 and Sixth Form. Sixth Form students are attracted by the range of academic options and co-curricular activities as well as extensive next steps advice and help with revision and applying to universities.


The real judgement of Gordon’s is the students. All who visit are struck by the friendliness, discipline and vibrancy throughout the school and by the family atmosphere, exemplified by the special rapport between staff and students.

One of Britain’s most academically successful state schools, we have a proud record of commitment to the highest standards and put great store in the widest possible recognition, celebration of achievement and intelligence.

All who visit are struck by the friendly, purposeful calm that pervades the school. This is no accident and is borne from self disciplined, focused and appreciative young people. Young people who are ambitious to be the best they can be, able to think for themselves, with a firmly-held moral code based on personal responsibility, respect for others and the desire to serve the wider community.
