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.

Academic Excellence is achieved primarily by excellent teaching and also by the application of new approaches to learning and a variety of exciting opportunities in which to discover and 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.

It is located in Bury St Edmunds, a town in the county of Suffolk in the south-east of England, approximately 90 minutes north-east of London and 30 minutes east of Cambridge.

Our small school size but spacious surroundings allow us to look after each boy or girl as an individual in an environment they find both understanding and supportive. Our class sizes ensure that overseas students integrate fully and receive an educational experience they enjoy while they are with us, and value afterwards.

Each boy and girl is a welcome member of our family for who they are; no-one needs to be worried about being overlooked, misunderstood or side-lined. This inclusiveness is at the heart of our school’s strength.

After all, good teaching depends and thrives upon the quality of the relationship between teacher and student. The better they understand each other, the more the rapport is tailored at a personal level, the more fruitful and lasting are the educational gains.
