About Culford School

Situated within beautiful parkland just three miles from Bury St Edmunds, Culford School is a co-educational boarding and day school providing exceptional academic and sports facilities for pupils aged 13 to 18. Rated outstanding by both OFSTED and ISI, we are renowned for having a unique sense of community which enriches the minds of our pupils, and creates an academic environment that develops the potential of every individual. Senior School and Sixth Form is for pupils aged 13 to 18 years; before that pupils may enter the Prep School for 12 to seven year olds, and the Pre-Prep and Nursery for rising threes to six year olds. Our philosophy is to provide a well-rounded education which shapes the minds and lives of our pupils both today, and for the future. To accomplish this goal we have invested in the very best facilities so every child can embrace academia in an inspirational and nurturing setting, and achieve qualifications of the highest standards. Understanding that a healthy body is just as important as a healthy mind, we also have a state-of-the-art sports and tennis centre which enables children to pursue a wealth of sporting activities, and develop a competitive and disciplined approach to life. Contact Culford School today to give your child the very best foundation for the future; an education which is challenging, enriching and fun.
