Private School in West Sussex

Worth School, Turners Hill:
Worth School is a Benedictine (Catholic) independent co-educational day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 11-18. The school is situated in Turners Hill, West Sussex, in South East England, only 50 km from London and 12 km from Gatwick Airport. At Worth, we see our pupils as 'Lanterns to Light'. Inspiring pupils to think, learn, create, imagine and perform is crucial if each individual is to develop their intellectual potential. Pupils are not merely taught what they need to know but, much more importantly, how to learn.

A major strength of the school is the broad curriculum and the all-round education that pupils enjoy. Worth is proud to offer the International Baccalaureate alongside the traditional A Level curriculum, so that Sixth Form pupils can have as wide a choice as possible in the type of curriculum that suits them best. Examination results in both the IB and A Levels are high and our students enter the very best universities in the UK and abroad.

Our 10 Benedictine values for community living:

Day pupils:

Day pupils at Worth are also fully engaged in the life of the school including all activities on offer in the evening and at weekends. They register at 8:30 a.m. each morning and can leave at 5:55 p.m. There is a strong tradition of day pupils becoming boarders later in their school career.

Activities Programme:

There is a diverse and wide-ranging programme of events and activities for pupils outside the curriculum at Worth, in three main areas.

i) A comprehensive activities programme for all students in the school
ii) A voluntary Community Service programme open to all Year 9 to 13 pupils. These activities take place both on and off-site.

There is a comprehensive range of activities into which all pupils have to opt throughout the course of the year. All students take part in two activities a term, however in the Summer Term this is reduced to one for Years 13,12 and 11. If a student has a school commitment, such as choir, the Young Enterprise Scheme or Rugby Sevens, or is studying an extra subject outside the curriculum, then that can count as their activity. Many students will, however, choose an activity in addition to their commitment.
