Hurtwood House is an independent school, specialising in the sixth form; our unique blend of the academic and creative prepares students for university and life beyond.
The school has an outstanding academic record with over 20 subjects being studied at A Level - ISI rated the school as excellent in every category during their last inspection and our results ensure we always feature highly in the league tables for co-educational boarding schools. The other defining feature of Hurtwood House is its creativity. We are a centre of excellence for the performing and creative arts, providing outstanding opportunities for the aspiring actor, singer, artist, fashion designer, composer and film maker both in the A Level courses and in specially arranged and professionally organised activities. These include our Film Academy, Acting and Dance Companies, our concerts and our drama productions.
This culture of creativity, originality and professionalism permeates throughout the school and, because it is important to us that we provide a complete and broad education, we put a great deal of emphasis on personal development, preparing our students for university and, more importantly, the challenges of life beyond.
Established in 1970, Hurtwood House is now one of England’s most exciting and successful schools – retaining traditional values, but breaking new ground educationally.
