Bishop’s Stortford College is one of the leading independent co-educational day and boarding schools in the UK. Large enough to provide an exceptional range of opportunities, yet small enough for individuals to be known and valued, the College is based in a beautifully peaceful, spacious and safe setting, close to the countryside yet within walking distance of the market town centre.
Bishop’s Stortford College is a wonderful place of learning where we discover and develop your child’s talents, creating opportunities, experiences and the very special atmosphere our pupils enjoy.
Breadth of experience is part of daily life. Our pupils pursue high academic standards whilst enjoying, and succeeding in, many other interests. Building Confidence for Life.

Bishop’s Stortford College Pre-Prep and Prep School offer day schooling for pupils from 4+, and day and boarding for those between 7 and 13 years. Each has its own distinctive learning environments, whilst being part of the wider school community, sharing the same campus and ethos. Pupils benefit from a greater range of facilities, teaching resources and opportunities than is typical of most schools for these age groups. Pupils are well prepared for entry into Senior School at 13+, ensuring a smooth transition.
Whilst academic study is our priority and we take great pride in the public examination results our pupils achieve, we believe passionately in the value of an all-round education, and to this end, Bishop’s Stortford College is packed with opportunities outside the classroom. The diversity of choice is exceptional. Our dynamic and innovative centres for music, art and drama are highly regarded, and we enjoy a successful record in sport at both regional and national levels.
Belonging to a College House is a major part of life for all Senior School pupils and Prep School boarders. Each House has an incredibly strong sense of community, with an emphasis on co-operation, responsibility, independence and mutual respect. The diversity of backgrounds and nationalities expands horizons and enriches all those within our community. Flexi boarding (Prep School only), part-time (Senior School), weekly and full boarding options are available. 3 of our 4 state-of-the-art Senior School Boarding Houses feature modern, airy study bedrooms with en suite facilities. All our Senior School Boarding Houses also accommodate day pupils for a truly integrated community.
School House, the original College building, is currently undergoing extensive modernisation and will provide 12 new classrooms in early 2021 plus additional administration and staff facilities.
We look forward to welcoming you. Building Confidence for Life.
