Gordon’s School

Built over a century ago at the express wish of Queen Victoria, as the national monument to General Gordon, Gordon’s School is listed as one of Britain’s outstanding schools by Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector and judged Boarding School of the Year 2022 in the TES Schools Awards.


A non-selective, co-educational day and boarding school, the School is in the top 5% of all schools in England and Wales for progress at A Level. However, the School’s ethos is that a good education is not just about outstanding examination results, but a thorough preparation for life. Over 50 per cent of its boarders are from Service families, attracted by the location and the school’s understanding of military life.


Children from military families have priority for places and as well as providing the necessary environment for their physical, emotional and spiritual welfare, additional help is in place to plug any holes in their education. Those beginning their boarding journey aged 11 enjoy a bespoke boarding house with Houseparents experienced in looking after children from Service families.


The real judgement of Gordon’s is the students. All who visit are struck by the friendliness, discipline and vibrancy throughout the school.

“ Gordon’s combines ‘outstanding’ boarding provision alongside some of the very best education in the country.”
