The opportunities that await children at Embley go beyond achieving A*s. Academic excellence goes hand in hand with an education that extends beyond the classroom. The school’s ethos is built around three pillars: ambition, self-belief and compassion towards others. The foundation of this lies in a belief that the personal development and formation of individuals is the most important experience a school can bestow on its pupils. Embley provides an all-encompassing learning experience where it helps children become the best version of themselves.

In October 2022, Embley achieved the highest possible ‘Excellent’ rating across all areas of its provision for pupil achievement and personal development following a full inspection from the Independent Schools Inspectorate.

Children are encouraged to be bold, take intellectual risks, and employ problem solving strategies that can be applied across all aspects of life. They respond well to this challenge, with each mistake valued as an opportunity for growth and development. Be it sailing, skiing, scuba-diving, horse riding, rock climbing, playing golf or shooting, Embley’s extensive co-curriculum of over 160 activities enables students to grow and succeed in areas beyond the confines of a classroom and provides an opportunity to balance academic ambition with wider aspirational goals.
