A caring, diverse and international environment
We take student welfare very seriously, providing comfortable, safe, and secure en-suite boarding accommodation. Our friendly house staff provide a home from home, so students can focus on becoming confident and independent learners.
Inspire, Empower, Achieve
“Coming here, I found a good degree of depth in terms of the knowledge that we are gaining. Yet at the same time, it was simplified so that someone who had zero knowledge could actually come and start a whole new thing.”

“Most of my friends got offers from very good universities. And I think the Worthgate School is the place that can really help us to progress to universities that we all want to go to.”

We have eleven boarding houses offering a home-away-from- home, age-specific accommodation. Each house has its own unique character, but all students benefit from exceptional care and support from professional houseparents. Activities and cross-house competitions enable all boarders to develop their emotional intelligence, social skills and empathy whilst having fun with their friends. Our aim is to assist students in becoming confident, self-aware, happy and caring young people.
