Overlooking the River Thames in Oxfordshire, the College is situated in an inspirational rural site just two miles upstream from Henley-on-Thames, famous for its Royal Regatta. We are conveniently located 40 minutes from Heathrow airport, and are close to the major railway and motorway networks, with easy links to Reading, London and Oxford. 


150 weekly and full boarders become fully integrated into Shiplake’s inclusive and welcoming environment. International pupils join us from all over the world, and represent approximately 5% of the school. A thriving programme of boarding activities ensures all boarders are fully engaged.
