Sevenoaks School is a coeducational day and boarding school for pupils aged 11‑18. Founded in 1432, Sevenoaks provides academic excellence with a strong pastoral and co-curricular emphasis and a global dimension inspired by the International Baccalaureate. Half an hour from Central London and from Gatwick International Airport, it is situated on an attractive 100-acre campus adjoining Knole Park. There are about 1000 pupils in the school, including international students from 40 countries around the world. Around a third of all students are boarders, and boarding is an important element in the school’s life and ethos. In 2013 the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) awarded Sevenoaks School the rare accolade of ‘Exceptional’ for its students’ achievement. In 2012 the Sunday Times listed Sevenoaks as the top performing co-educational independent school, and the Department for Education placed Sevenoaks at the top of its GCSE performance tables and ranked it as the top performing independent school for its IB results. In 2009 Sevenoaks was described as ‘outstanding’ in the Ofsted Boarding inspection. Sevenoaks School rightly has a reputation for exploring new ideas. We were the first HMC school to adopt the IB and the first all-IB public school in England. We have taught the IB for over 30 years. Sevenoaks pioneered one of the first school voluntary service units in 1961, while recent innovations include the Sevenoaks School Certificate in English Literature, an innovative and rigorous syllabus devised by the school in place of the traditional GCSE.
