“Holyport College is a co-educational day and boarding school for students aged 11 – 19 years. It has been judged Outstanding by Ofsted in all categories (June 2017).

It opened in September 2014 as a brand new state funded school in Holyport, Berkshire – one of the new ‘free schools’. Entry is in both Years 7 and 9. Our Sixth Form opened in September 2017.

Holyport College aims to provide an outstanding all-round education. Eton College is our sole educational sponsor and therefore brings its educational and pastoral expertise to Holyport College. Eton has supported and helped to shape the school prior to its opening by taking a leading role on the Governing Body. Now the school is open, Holyport pupils are able to use some of Eton’s facilities, particularly for sport and also to join in educational activities at Eton (for example attending speaker meetings in the evenings and working on specific educational initiatives for the benefit of pupils of both Colleges).”
