About Culford School

Mission statement

“To unlock the full potential of every pupil.”


Culford strives to create learning experiences that are highly personalised and tailored to the needs of individual students. The school believes that those students who enjoy their studies and have genuine interest will excel, and so they utilise active learning techniques to ensure pupils are always engaged and involved during lessons.

Their pass rate at A Level has been above 98% for the past 5 years.

Activities & sports

Culford School offers plentiful opportunities for students to get involved beyond the classroom. Sport can be participated in at a recreational level or at competitive level. As well as academic societies and creative clubs such as drama and dance, Culford runs an active Combined Cadet Force which students can participate in weekly.

International student community

Culford currently has pupils from over 25 different nationalities enrolled and the school is committed to ensuring all students feel welcome and at home.

A one-year Pre-GCSE course is also available for Year 9 students who may want extra time to adjust to life at British boarding school. The course is run by expert teachers and helps to set up international students for success at GCSE and beyond.

Boarding life

The majority of boarding students at Culford are full boarders and the school doesn't have compulsory exeat weekend breaks. As a result, boarding life is busy and full of activity options including go-karting, bowling, theatre visits and trips into surrounding areas such as Cambridge.
