“Our education stands apart in the values and attitudes of its young men and women. Compassion, tolerance, kindness, integrity and a generosity of Spirit underpin a determined dedication to academic excellence.” Guy Ayling, Head Master

Our spectacular location means that we are well known for our strong commitment to co-curricular activities and we encourage all pupils to take part whether it be camping out on the moor, paddling a canoe, riding the waves on a surf board or enjoying an overnight sail in our 50 foot pilot cutter ‘Olga’. With a high standard of academic schooling and a proven track record in public examination results over 85% of our pupils gain places at their top choice of universities.

The School has an internationally recognised swimming programme with a 4 lane 25m pool and an 8 lane 50m pool and has had alumni at the last five Olympic and Paralympic games. In 2020 Mount Kelly won the prestigious Arena League confirming our place as the top school for swimming in the UK.

The College Chamber Choir is the flagship ensemble of the School. The group perform a wide range of challenging music, but mostly a cappella. They won the Barnardo’s School Choir of the Year Competition in London in 2020, and compete internationally every year

We are also excited to announce the launch of our Sixth Form Girls’ Performance Football Academy in association with the Chelsea Football Club Foundation with entries now being taken for September 2021.

The success of our swimmers and singers create a culture in which the level of commitment and dedication required to excel are not considered out of the ordinary but are qualities to which everyone can aspire.

The School offers minibus transfer services and is well connected to major cities and transport hubs including London, Heathrow.
