Worth School

Senior Co-Education School in Turners Hill, West Sussex

Worth is a distinctive day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 11-18 years, set in 500 acres of beautiful Sussex countryside close to London. We are an academically ambitious school with excellent examination results and pastoral care, and a diverse range of more than 150 co-curricular activities. 


Worth is a Catholic school but welcomes pupils of all faiths and no faiths, and our Benedictine values include Community, Humility and Service. These values provide the
foundation for a unique education – an education with heart and soul – preparing pupils to become well-rounded individuals who are kind, purpose-driven and community-minded. Worth retains historic and traditional features whilst effortlessly blending in state-of-the art modern facilities including the magnificent Spencer Building featuring a library, auditorium and Sixth Form centre, and plans for a new Science Building approved for next year. Sports facilities are excellent and there is a superbly equipped Performing Arts Centre.


Sixth Form students select either the International Baccalaureate Diploma or A levels and go on to study at world-class institutions including Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, St Andrews and UCL as well as international destinations across US and Europe. Every Worthian remains part of the community long after they leave, enjoying the benefits of our alumni association which offers extensive career mentoring, networking and internships as well as sports, music and social events.
