Bishop's Stortford College is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 4 to 18 in Hertfordshire.
The school has a strong sense of community and pupils are 'surrounded by inspiring role models who enable them to develop the same confidence and ability to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary' resulting in pupils who 'grow into happy, well-rounded, skilful and caring young people, equipped and ready for the adventures and opportunities life has to offer.'
Head Kathy Crewe-Read says: 'Bishop’s Stortford College is a wonderful place of learning – a place large enough to provide an outstanding range of opportunities for developing well-rounded, skilful and happy young people, yet small enough for each individual to be known and nurtured.'
'Our pupils can, and do, pursue high academic standards whilst enjoying, and succeeding in, many other interests. Our love of life and learning enables pupils to grow into well-rounded, skilful, caring and confident people, equipped and ready for the adventures and opportunities life has to offer.'

What makes Bishop's Stortford College different?
Attain asked the school, what makes Bishop's Stortford College different – and why should parents consider it?
As an integrated day and boarding school for pupils aged 4-18, Bishop's Stortford College is large enough to provide an exceptional range of opportunities, whilst each section (Pre-Prep, Prep School and the Senior School), is small enough for pupils to be known, valued and nurtured as individuals.
Every pupil is encouraged, taught and challenged to fulfil his or her true potential, by being immersed in an environment of discovery and wholehearted participation.
Pupils are surrounded by inspiring role models who enable them to develop the same confidence and ability to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.
The infectious enthusiasm, imagination and dedication of College staff, in partnership with parents, enables pupils to grow into happy, well-rounded, independently minded, skilful and caring young people, equipped and ready for the adventures and opportunities life has to offer.
