About the school
Lingfield College is an independent school for boys and girls from Nursery to University. We are located in the pretty village of Lingfield, just 25 miles (and 40 minutes by train) from London and set within almost 40 acres of beautiful grounds. Lingfield train station is 10 minutes away on foot. The Nursery/Prep School (2½-11 years) and Senior School/Sixth Form (11-18 years) are each self-contained. There are currently 929 students on roll.
In recent years the School has been undergoing a comprehensive development programme including new Science Laboratories throughout the School, Music & Drama, IT, Art & Technology facilities. Sporting facilities have also been enhanced by the creation of a 15 acre Sports Field, two Sports Halls, Fitness Suite, a Pavilion and Astroturf pitch. The School offers Scholarships and Bursaries at 11+, 13+ and Sixth Form. Lingfield College is very proud of it’s magnificent, state of the art, Sixth Form Centre, and is currently building a brand new Music Centre opening in 2017.
The School is highly successful and oversubscribed with a fine reputation for academic achievement and pastoral care. A Level and GCSE results are consistently excellent, enabling most students to gain their first choice of university.
Lingfield College is a Christian based school and welcomes students from all faiths. It was founded in 1940 and is the only local independent day school which provides education for boys and girls from Nursery to Sixth Form.
We offer a broad curriculum which we aspire to deliver through the highest standards of teaching. We want children to take risks in the classroom, not to be afraid of getting it wrong, but rather confident enough to ask questions and think for themselves. All children have talents and gifts, both in and out of the classroom and we are always looking to identify and celebrate these at every opportunity. We want to develop creative thinkers.
The School not only prides itself on its academic, musical, dramatic, sporting and artistic achievements, but also on its ability to challenge and motivate all its pupils.
