St Lawrence College

Founded in 1879, the St Lawrence College is home to 650 pupils from all over the world and has a real family atmosphere, with a strong sense of community based on Christian foundations. We welcome full boarding pupils from 7 to 18 years to our beautiful green campus. The school is within close walking distance of the beach and the royal harbour of Ramsgate, situated in South-East coast of England.

"Absolutely stunning! – outstanding boarding facilities and a calm and safe oasis of learning.”

Boarding is central to the school’s life and a substantial programme of investment has created some truly remarkable facilities for our boarders, with all rooms en-suite. Academic standards are high, and an extensive choice of GCSEs and A-levels are offered, with an excellent success rate of pupils going on to their first choice of university, including Oxbridge. St Lawrence College is a High Performance Learning World Class School, and was one of the initial 14 schools globally to achieve this coveted accolade.

Sporting facilities are exceptional and include a magnificent Sports Centre and an Olympic standard hockey pitch. Music and drama flourish, enhanced by the School’s own 500-seat theatre. Our Canon Perfect Centre, opened in 2018, houses spacious rooms and state-of-the-art equipment for Science, Art, Design and Technology. Boarders can use all of the facilities on site in the evenings and weekends and benefit from an extensive extra-curricular activities programme.


London is only 75 minutes away via direct high-speed train from Ramsgate to London St Pancras International and the school runs its own airport transfer service to Gatwick and Heathrow


With over 50 children whose families are in the Armed Forces we are able to offer a true boarding school experience.

HM Forces personnel in receipt of CEA only pay 10% of our school fees, which makes affordability key.
