Sedbergh School: Traditional values and modern thinking
Located in the safe but vibrant small market town of Sedbergh, Sedbergh School, which was founded in 1525, is situated in an area of outstanding beauty. The School is very distinct in that 97% of pupils board seven days a week. Genuine round-the-clock pastoral care is guaranteed to pupils in what is a traditional boarding house system with resident Housemasters and Housemistresses, Tutors and Matrons.
In addition to the regular year-round curriculum, Sedbergh School also runs summer courses in a range of sports and activities as well as a first-class International Summer School.
Both the preparatory School in Casterton and Sedbergh School benefit from excellent road and rail links, with Manchester and Liverpool International Airports a mere 90 minutes away.
