At Sedbergh School, we are receiving a record number of enquiries and to receive recognition in a variety of specialist areas supports the holistic education on offer to our pupils.
As we approach our 500th anniversary, Sedbergh School continues to go from strength to strength with many exciting projects planned over the next two years; work has already started on two state-of-the-art, floodlit astroturf pitches which should be completed by July 2023.”
