Sedbergh School

Sedbergh Cumbria LA10 5HG

“Sedberghians are sociable, caring, well-mannered, self-confident, energetic and healthy. They are keen to make the most of personal opportunities yet aware of the wider world and their responsibility towards it; they delight in learning yet have independent minds; they can debate and communicate, and work independently or in a team. They also develop other valuable qualities such as a strong work ethic, loyalty and integrity. The thriving Senior School has 450 pupils ranging in age from 13 to 18 years, who are supported by 80 qualified and committed teaching staff, coaches and pastoral care specialists.  Sedbergh Junior School, including a Pre-Prep department, has now moved to the same location and is going from strength to strength with 100 girls and boys aged 4 to 13.”
