Academic Overview

Teaching and learning is at the core of academic opportunity and success at Sedbergh School. We are proud of our exam results but we always prefer to focus on the individual progress our pupils make. This is represented by independent “value-added” measures which place Sedbergh amongst the top 10% of Schools in the country. We offer a broad curriculum to match the needs of our pupils, and we are proud that the vast majority are accepted by their first-choice university.

And we go further, equipping Sedbergh pupils with a breadth and depth of understanding beyond the confines of their classroom learning. Our curriculum offers opportunities for broad academic study in an inspiring and well-equipped learning environment. This experience is then further enhanced by lectures in and out of school, visits, field trips, conferences and workshops and first-class careers advice. There is no doubt that the range of academic and co-curricular opportunities beyond the classroom give Sedberghians the edge when it comes to competing for places at top universities in the UK and around the world.
