Head's Welcome

Bishop’s Stortford College is a wonderful place of learning – a place large enough to provide an outstanding range of opportunities for developing well-rounded, skilful and happy young people, yet small enough for each individual to be known and nurtured.

College Head Kathy Crewe-ReadWe have the time and space and, above all, the commitment, to discover and develop the talent within your child, wherever his or her talents lie. As a day and boarding school for 4-18 year olds, with boarding starting from the age of 7, we can cater for boys and girls of different ages within the family and the individual needs of different families.

Following substantial investment, in 2017 we opened a new day house and three new boarding and day houses which means we are now able to offer boys and girls, state of the art, en suite boarding accommodation with the very latest in modern facilities. They are something we are enormously proud of.

At the heart of the College, though, are people. It is the energy and imagination of College staff, and their enthusiasm to go that extra mile, which creates the opportunities, experiences and very special atmosphere that our pupils enjoy and adds immeasurable value to the education we provide.

Breadth of experience is naturally woven into daily life. Our pupils can, and do, pursue high academic standards whilst enjoying, and succeeding in, many other interests. Our love of life and learning enables pupils to grow into well-rounded, skilful, caring and confident people, equipped and ready for the adventures and opportunities life has to offer.

I urge you therefore to visit us, either on an Open Event or by arranging a personal visit. Talk to me, talk to staff, talk to pupils – we will do all we can to help you get below the surface and discover whether Bishop’s Stortford College is the right place for your family.
