“These days, standing still is moving backwards. Bishop’s Stortford College is not standing still. It is as simple as that.” - Parent

Based on the outskirts of a picturesque market town, we have built a wonderful, busy, highly successful community, comprising over 1300 pupils from 27 different nationalities.
As three schools in one, the College is large enough to provide an exceptional range of opportunities, whilst each part is small enough for pupils to be known, valued and nurtured as individuals. Our boarding community, fully integrated with day pupils, benefit from some of the best boarding facilities in the region.


Academic excellence is a top priority for us. Our dedicated and talented teaching staff fire pupils’ imaginations, always going the extra mile to give them the skills they need to develop and thrive. We believe the breadth of opportunity we offer, balanced with personal growth and strong values of decency and kindness, is what an education for today and tomorrow must deliver. Underpinning everything is a unique community spirit that enables each pupil to succeed, and to be happy doing so. Here there is a togetherness where none of us is as important as all of us.


We do not look like most schools of our type. We do indeed have the huge campus with wonderful facilities. But we are different in some important ways. We are the modern face of independent education.
