About us

Tonbridge School is one of the leading boys’ boarding schools in the country and is highly respected, both here and internationally, for providing a world class education.

Tonbridge School is situated on a campus of 150 acres in the town of Tonbridge in West Kent. The town is frequently ranked within the top 20 “best places to live” in the UK, based on the results of the annual Halifax quality of life study which looks at a range of factors including health, earnings, crime rates and life expectancy. The school is placed at the top of the High Street of the town and is surrounded by outstandingly beautiful Kent countryside.

At Tonbridge, our pupils are encouraged to be creative and intellectually curious; to approach new opportunities with confidence; and to learn to think for themselves while being mindful of the needs and views of others, and our staff are at the heart of our success.

We have developed a strong culture of community, collaboration and best practice, and all of our staff are encouraged to participate fully in the life of the school and to enjoy our beautiful grounds and facilities. In the words of the great novelist and Old Tonbridgian, E. M. Forster: ‘Only Connect’.
