Warwick School

Warwick School has a very long and rich history stretching back reputedly to 914, making it one of the oldest schools in the country. 

Warwick School is a leading independent day and boarding school for boys aged 7-18, set in 55 acres, adjacent to the River Avon, within Warwick town. The school is proud of its outstanding facilities and the new Warwick Hall is one of the largest and most impressive performance venues in the region.

We aim to develop responsible, resilient and compassionate young men of character, equipped to succeed in a changing world.

High academic expectations and achievements, together with outstanding pastoral care and exceptional co-curricular provision make Warwick School a wonderful place to be educated.

Our committed and dedicated staff work tirelessly to ensure that Warwick School is a place where your child will thrive. The school has always provided an education in the broadest sense, seeking to develop the talents of each and every pupil, always guided by the school motto, Altiora Peto, ‘I seek higher things.’  

Our engaging staff foster a learning environment in which every pupil is challenged intellectually and thrives academically. An environment where they will be happy, cared for, and have their interests ignited, whatever these may be. 

We develop young men of character and talent, and central to this goal is the breadth and quality of our co-curricular provision.  Every pupil within Warwick School benefits from a wealth of experiences outside the classroom that will broaden his horizons and develop his skills.

Our supportive and nurturing community ensures that pupils are known as individuals and celebrated whatever their strengths or abilities, enabling our young men to flourish in what is now, more than ever, a rapidly changing world. This is the ‘Warwick Way’.
