Box Hill School is a co-educational boarding school for girls and boys aged 11-18 in the heart of beautiful Surrey Hills. Central London is easily accessible, and we are just 30 minutes from Heathrow Airport and Gatwick Airport. We are a founding member of Round Square, a global network of schools that share a passion for learning through experience and character education. We follow this philosophy through our IDEALS of Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership and Service which underpin our school ethos and values. There are opportunities for pupils to participate in global and regional conferences and overseas community service projects.

Academic - The Curriculum

Years 7, 8 and 9 follows the National Curriculum. We provide a wide range of IGCSEs. In the Sixth Form we offer our students the choice of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) or A Levels. Our IB is academically rigorous and well-respected by prestigious universities within the UK and beyond. We offer a wide range of IB subjects: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and other languages, Business, Economics, Geography, History and Psychology, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Physical Education, Exercise and Health Science, Mathematics, Visual Arts, Music and Theatre Studies. We offer a 2 week Summer Pre-School English course which help students raise their English Language CEFR level, as well as gain invaluable British boarding experience. Students may also study here on a one year Pre-Sixth course (accelerated GCSE programme) to gain valuable qualifications ahead of joining the mainstream Sixth Form courses.


We are committed to producing well-rounded young people which is why we provide every pupil with a wide range of co-curricular options. There are over 50 options which are timetabled during the school day. Pupils can choose from coding, producing podcasts, jazz, drama production and many more. Athletic interests are catered for, with team sports and weekly fixtures along with many other active options on offer. We are actively involved in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme which runs in parallel to our programme of expeditions.
