"Set in peaceful surroundings, Ellesmere pupils receive an outstanding personalised education enabling them to develop into confident and successful human beings.”

Ranked in the Top 20 British Schools offering the International Baccalaureate. Another excellent year for academic standards was demonstrated with performances from Sixth Form students in both the International Baccalaureate and A Level. 85% of students gained entry into their first choice universities including Oxford and Cambridge.

Ellesmere was recently awarded the Artsmark Platinum Award by the British Arts Council and the school continues to provide excellence in the visual, media and performing arts. Sporting standards are exceptional: Ellesmere is a (WAoS) Athlete Friendly Education Centre; 1 of only 9 schools worldwide. The college Titans swim team competes in the UK adult premier league and are currently national champions, with a world champion and a number of commonwealth qualifiers. Our target shooting team in recent years has won the Ashburton Shield, the most prestigious school’s shooting competition, whilst the rugby, cricket, tennis and golf academies continue to produce U18 international players. The new football academy has already seen players offered trials at professional clubs.

Boarding is available for pupils from 9 years old. Our modern accommodation provides a high quality, comfortable and secure environment for our students, with residential staff on site to tend to the pupils’ needs 24 hours a day. There is a close liaison between the boarding and teaching staff to ensure a continuity of care at all times.
