Christ’s Hospital is unique for a UK independent boarding school in that it offers more bursary places than other schools. This stems from our founding charter as a charitable school. School fees are paid on a means tested basis, with substantial subsidies paid by the School, so that pupils from all corners of society are able to have a high quality, independent boarding school education that would otherwise be beyond their means

Christ’s Hospital

Horsham, West Sussex, RH13 0YP

If you want a school with the ‘wow’ factor in abundance, look no further than Christ’s Hospital.

Christ’s Hospital offers its pupils something very rare in UK independent education. The School is one of only four co-educational full boarding senior schools in the country. The advantage of full boarding is that all pupils stay at school twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

Head's Welcome

A CH pupil’s experience centres on building and strengthening attributes based on resilience, perseverance, compassion, willing service and empathy. These attributes form the pillar-strength principles of the Christ’s Hospital curriculum.

I want pupils to embrace challenge in all its forms. Pupils will feel what it is like to be challenged and, having been challenged, will themselves challenge intelligently, and that spirit is quickly realised from the moment a pupil joins CH.


The Christ’s Hospital campus is nothing short of majestic. From the moment you arrive you’ll see that it is a very special place. Sweeping sports fields, beautiful buildings and our spectacular Quad are immediately visible.

The School has 16 boarding houses, two Upper Sixth Form residences, its own purpose-built theatre, modern sports centre, music school and art school.

What is so special about Christ’s Hospital is the extent of the resources on offer: 24/7 teachers, supported prep sessions, a broad range of activities including societies like the medics group to help with university applications as well as extensive and impressive sports facilities. When pupils start at Christ’s Hospital they are encouraged to join in and to have a go, to discover new hobbies, to make use of the wonderful facilities on site and to ensure they get the most out of their time at the School.

The School is unashamedly academic – with 98% of pupils moving on each year to the leading universities in this country and abroad.

Pupils’ fees are assessed according to family income, so that it is a child’s ability and potential to benefit from a CH education that determines their selection. This results in a social and cultural diversity that enriches our school community and offers our pupils a unique experience.
