"... the opportunities here will get you where you need to be"

Welcome from the Head


To make children ready for life means developing them into flexible, innovative, dynamic and resilient young adults. The first three are key values in a world in which change is the only constant; and young adults also need to learn resilience as failures and setbacks sometimes lead to our greatest successes.

The Good Schools Guide

Last year, the glamorous fashion and lifestyle magazine, Tatler, included Culford as one of its six most architecturally beautiful schools. As we are unable to welcome you to our Summer Open Morning, we wanted to give you a preview of Culford's beautiful setting. With the help of our Head of Golf, Lawrence Dodd, and his trusty golf buggy we were able to make this short video. 

Next Steps...

We hope this virtual open morning has provided you with an insight into life at Culford and the wonderful education we are proud to offer. We would be delighted to offer prospective families the opportunity of an individual online visit or an on-site tour of Culford.
