Sevenoakes School

Founded in 1432, Sevenoaks School enjoys the distinction of being among the UK’s oldest schools, with a tradition of innovation and excellence.

We have been co-educational for almost 50 years, and in 1978 we became one of the first schools in the UK to adopt the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in the Sixth Form.
The IB Diploma is the best Sixth Form education available in the world. It offers the breadth of studying six subjects as well as an extended essay and a critical thinking course. It also pulls together aspects of creativity, action and service, to develop well-rounded young adults with a range of skills and aptitudes; it is superb preparation for university and life.

Our impressive IB Diploma average is consistently eight to ten points above the world average and our students go on to study at top universities around the world. The majority go to Oxbridge, London and other Russell Group universities, and with our global outlook we see around 20 per cent of our students going to international universities, increasingly to Ivy League and other colleges in North America.

Yet a Sevenoaks education is about much more than results. We instill the love of learning for its own sake and genuine academic endeavour. We encourage collaboration, communication and teamwork, not just competition. We develop inquiring, caring and knowledgeable young people, empowered with the skills to create a better and more peaceful world.

Our state-of-the-art facilities, together with high-level instruction, provide rich opportunities for students to participate in a wide variety of sports, the performing arts, and many other co-curricular activities.

We ensure all our students flourish through outstanding pastoral care, and breadth and balance across the curriculum and co-curriculum. Ultimately, our fundamental measure of success is that our students leave Sevenoaks as happy, empowered and dynamic young adults ready to thrive in the next stage of their lives. Our team of specialist tutors, boarding house staff and divisional heads ensure our pupils receive expert care and support, which creates mutual respect and friendliness between students and staff.
