Stamford Endowed Schools International Boarding
As members of the HMC, a professional association of the Heads of the world’s leading independent schools, we are committed to academic excellence, outstanding pastoral care, and exceptional co-curricular opportunities. We are a diamond school which means we offer co-educational teaching in the junior years (to age 11), single-sex teaching for children between the ages of 11 to 16 and co-educational teaching for Sixth Form (ages 17-18). Teaching children in single-sex classes between the ages of 11-16 enables us to adapt our teaching style to boys and girls who are maturing at different rates.
Stamford is a safe place to live and learn. The town itself is known for its honey-coloured Georgian buildings, notable churches and historic landmarks and houses. Transport links are good. We are an hour from London and less than two hours from several international airports, including Heathrow and Gatwick, and with direct trains to Birmingham International and Stansted.Stamford Town
Your child can take numerous subjects both at GCSE and A Level (there are 27 A Level subjects available). During the evenings, teachers are on hand in the boarding houses to provide additional support at structured homework periods.International Admissions
House Parents and staff provide the guidance and support your child needs. Boarding houses are comfortable and are organised by age, making it easier for your child to develop new friendships. Older children are often in smaller dorms so that they can have a quieter place to study and Sixth Form pupils live in pairs. Each School has its own full-time nurse. At weekends there are plenty of social activities and trips, and many independent shops and coffee shops to enjoy.
Everything is in easy walking distance from the Schools: the boarding houses are just a minute or two away from the town centre. It’s less than five minutes’ walk to Burghley House, the famous Elizabethan house built between 1555 and 1587 by William Cecil, Lord Treasurer to Queen Elizabeth I. Your child can take part in a wide variety of different sports which include hockey, table tennis, the gym, badminton and rugby. There are also numerous clubs available from chess to debating.
Don't just take our word for it...
I remember when I first came here, I was so nervous. It was the first time I came to Britain. I remember coming into the boarding house-sitting room and sitting on the sofa were two boarders who later became my very best friends!Theresa Tian Old Stamfordian
I like boarding, it feels like a big family. I have memories that will stay in my head for a long time!
