Uppingham School is a vibrant and energetic full boarding school for girls and boys aged 13-18. Accommodating 800 pupils across 15 boarding houses, the School offers state-of-the-art science, sports and music facilities, alongside its strong academic profile and excellent pastoral care. Alumni include Stephen Fry, Rick Stein, McFly’s Harry Judd and Phil Spencer of Location, Location, Location.

Founded in 1584, Uppingham is a school with a long and proud heritage, but is fundamentally forward-looking in its values and approach. It offers a warm, compassionate and mutually supportive environment where pupils are appreciated for who they are; where they are given the skills and tools they need to navigate their own path in life.

Uppingham prides itself on a longstanding commitment to a holistic education, first introduced by its famous former headmaster Edward Thring (HM 1853-1887). Within its walls, young people are guided, nurtured and inspired to achieve excellence and flourish.

Uppingham is a seven day a week boarding school. When pupils aren’t being inspired and challenged in their academic lessons, they are able to enjoy co-curricular activities and enrichment programmes, as well as being able to immerse themselves in an active life within their House.

The Houses are an immersive, family-oriented environment; a hub of communal activity, as well as a place to rest, study and reflect. Pupils return to their Houses for mealtimes each day to dine together, which is an important and distinguishing feature of our pastoral care.

Located in the picturesque market town of Uppingham in Rutland, the School offers an outstanding and well-rounded education within a campus known for its historic architectural beauty, natural splendour, supportive teachers and exceptional pastoral care.
