Notable Academic Facilities

Uppingham is a forward-looking school with a rich and proud history. Our historic learning environment is inspiring and beautiful, complemented by exceptional, contemporary teaching facilities that enable our pupils to thrive and succeed. Our passion for teaching innovation is encompassed in our state-of-the-art Science Centre, in which our pupils can take advantage of purpose-built classrooms and study spaces in an airy and inspiring environment.

Wellbeing & Pastoral Care

We know that children who feel healthy, happy and safe perform at their best. Our pastoral care systems are at the heart of the way we nurture each pupil as an individual, providing compassionate care in our family-oriented boarding environment. Every staff member at Uppingham has a pastoral role, and with the support of doctors, nutritionists, psychologists and other specialists, we create a web of care that supports our pupils throughout their time at school.

Advice For Parents

The majority of pupils beginning in Year 9 will enter via our pre-tests taken early in Year 7 and thus applying with this in mind can help. However, we will always consider applications on their own merit, for whatever point of entry and whenever we receive them.

Typical Child

One with an enthusiasm to be involved in things that spark their interest and imagination, whatever that might be, and one prepared to take a risk and try new things as well.

Highly Regarded For

As a full boarding school, we offer a school life that is rich in opportunities; where all pupils can flourish and succeed. Exceptional academics and sport are complemented by excellence in the arts, music and an outstanding enrichment programme.
