Who are Hurst?

Interested in finding out more about our sponsors Hurst College?

Hurst College is a thriving independent school located within a 140-acre campus in West Sussex and offers a through-school education from Pre-Prep to Sixth Form.

With a vibrant, dynamic community, the college provides exceptional facilities for learning, placing huge importance on providing an excellent all-round education, with a strong academic core for every child. Academic excellence is the foundation of a Hurst education, but Hurst also offers extensive sporting, cultural, intellectual and social programmes, to help pupils develop key skills, qualities and values for life.

Academically selective, but not aggressively so, the school has an excellent track record, with improved year-on-year examination results, and the vast majority of pupils go on to Russell Group universities including Oxford and Cambridge.

The college achieved its strongest ever set of results at GCSE and A-level last Summer and was at the top of the rankings for GCSE and A-level value-added scores amongst UK independent schools – a key metric for parents who want their child “to do their best”. Hurst’s philosophy is to celebrate individual performance in all aspects of life, judging each student’s success against their own potential. The college was awarded excellent grades in all categories at its most recent ISI full inspection.

Hurst offers both day and boarding options (from Year 9) to enable families to choose which option suits them and their children best. The college’s balanced 21st century boarding approach means there is a choice of flexi (three nights) and weekly (five nights), both of which provide a healthy work-home balance, as pupils make the most of the educational and co-curricular opportunities during the week, leaving weekends free for quality family time.

In short, Hurst College aims to develop confident, successful, independent individuals with a good sense of themselves and the world around them, who will succeed in their lives whatever route they choose to take.
