Our Senior Schools Awards are given to independent secondary schools that are dedicated to giving their students an unparalleled experience. From academic achievements to extracurricular success, all these schools do something different from the rest.
Every recipient of a senior school award has been chosen from thousands of schools on our shortlist. We believe that all the schools featured on this page produce independent and thriving students, who will go on to achieve over the course of their academic careers and beyond.
While high grades are self-explanatory, we’ve considered specific aspects of school life that both parents and students often take into account when applying to secondary school. It is easy to know if your child will get good marks, but how can you be sure that they will enjoy their secondary school life?
The schools awarded here provide their students with opportunities that make school enjoyable. Focusing on league tables too much means that schools often forget to think beyond the academic scope, but all our Senior Schools Award winners have understood exactly what it takes to create the best secondary school experience.
