what is the spirit of sedbergh?

The essence of Sedbergh School is something that has often been labelled as ‘indescribable’. Just what is it that sets both the Prep and Senior Schools apart?  

A Sedbergh education is exciting, colourful, unashamedly challenging, honest, spirited, relevant and life changing. It imparts something permanently and indelibly on the way our pupils live their lives, both now and in the future.  

At both the Prep and Senior Schools we develop young people, from age 4 to 18, who are courageous, hardworking, friendly, respectful, witty, reflective and who value challenges that enhance the lives of others, as well as themselves.  

That is the Spirit of Sedbergh. 


In the Prep School we are privileged to be at the start of a child’s remarkable educational journey. We are excited by the curiosity and thirst for learning that every child naturally displays, and we work hard to nurture and support this. Our aim is to develop happy, confident children with a ‘can-do’ attitude; independent yet always with a sense of team before self. Through careful and sensitive teaching, we aim to foster a spirit of adventure, both inside and outside the classroom.

From age 4 to 13, the Prep School nurtures children as part of this active and supportive journey, enabling our pupils to realise their potential across all areas of the School - in the classroom, on the sports fields, on the stage and in the wider community. Our Ways of the Wolf describe the core values that shape our behaviour: ambition, collaboration, courage, creativity, kindness, and responsibility. Together they embody the Spirit of Sedbergh Prep School. 


The exciting journey continues at Sedbergh Senior School, which offers co-educational, full boarding for children aged 13 to 19. The School gives young people a safe freedom to explore the world physically, creatively, intellectually and socially. We are inclusive of pupils of a wide range of ability and talents, and provide a correspondingly broad selection of academic and extra-curricular opportunities to match. There is something for everyone here.

Through this rich thread of experience and values, Sedbergh pupils are not afraid to seize opportunities, to take their place in the modern world, and to contribute to it.
