SCHOOLS

Uppingham School

High St West Uppingham Rutland Leicestershire LE15 9QE

“We believe that schools exist in order to develop the confidence and self-esteem of pupils by encouraging them to achieve something special in a whole range of arenas. They learn a lot: much of it is academic, but lessons for life are there to be learnt as well. Descriptions of schools can easily be bland and unilluminating. I could tell you that the school has fifteen separate boarding houses, each with its own dining room. That it has 120 acres of land and wonderful facilities for theatre and games and art. That the whole site is networked for ICT and that there are 1800 access points to the network for pupils and for staff. That it has an outstanding reputation in music, and state-of-the-art facilities for music making. But what captivates the ordinary visitor to the school is the quality of the atmosphere. Children learn best in a warm and friendly environment and we are very proud of the feelings of warmth and care and enthusiasm generated by our staff and our pupils. Uppingham feels like a school in which children will be happy, will be encouraged to do well, and will learn skills for life.”
