"Pupils and parents alike rate the school highly.” The Good Schools Guide

Culford is an independent boarding and day school for 700 boys and girls aged 1 to 18 years and is set in 480 acres of beautiful Suffolk parkland. Culford is 3 miles from the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds, close to Cambridge and convenient to Stansted (1 hour) Gatwick and Heathrow airports (both 2 hours).


Culford combines the warmth and individual attention of a small community with the wider educational opportunities of a larger school; our aim is to provide an education that is challenging, enriching and fun. 

High quality and enthusiastic teaching is supported by superb academic, sporting and boarding facilities including a new  library, studio theatre, a superb indoor and outdoor tennis centre, 25 metre pool and state-of-the-art golf facilities with an indoor TRACKMAN swing analysis suite. Sports and activities are an integral part of our offerings, and academic excellence is supported by individualised attention and encouragement.

Recent ISI inspections rated our Senior School teaching, pastoral care and boarding as “Excellent”. We offer a broad range of GCSE and A Level subjects and leavers progress to top universities in the UK and abroad.
