Detail

The magnificent location of Sedbergh means pupils can enjoy school life in a safe, healthy and dynamic environment. The opportunities for outdoor activities are almost unlimited - from a walk in the hills to mountain biking, or the calm of fishing to the challenge of kayaking. While academic study is central for every pupil the experiences of a Sedberghian are never confined only to the classroom.

Teaching and learning is at the core of academic opportunity and success at Sedbergh School. Our ethos is one of challenge, innovation and inclusivity. We achieve excellent exam results and are proud that the majority of our pupils go to their first choice university. By creating academic opportunities beyond the classroom, we give Sedbergh boys and girls the edge when it comes to competing for places at top universities both in the UK and around the world.

We pride ourselves on giving Sedbergh pupils a breadth and depth of understanding beyond the confines of their classroom learning. Our curriculum offers opportunities for broad academic study in an inspiring and well-equipped learning environment, enhanced by lectures in and out of School, visits, field trips, conferences and workshops and first-class careers advice.
