Sedbergh School

Community. Participation. Resilience.

Founded in 1525, Sedbergh School is a diverse co-educational boarding school

for pupils aged 3 to 18 (boarding from 7) set in the beautiful countryside between the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District. This magnificent location means pupils can enjoy school life in a safe and dynamic environment. Sedbergh is among the top 10% of schools in the country for value added and while academic study is central for every pupil; the experiences of a Sedberghian are never confined to the classroom. The opportunities for outdoor activities are almost unlimited – from a walk in the hills to mountain biking, or the calm of fishing to high performance sailing.

Whilst Sedbergh is also synonymous with the highest standards of participation and achievement in team sports: rugby, netball, hockey and cricket, individual sports also abound
with golf, shooting, tennis, Fives and more. The boarding houses with in-house dining offer a warm and nurturing environment with each pupil feeling part of an extended family. The ethos of kindness, respect and inclusion underpins everything the school does.
