About Us

Warwick School has a very long and rich history stretching back reputedly to 914, making it one of the oldest schools in the country. 

Warwick School is a leading independent day and boarding school for boys aged 7-18, set in 50 acres, adjacent to the River Avon, within Warwick town. The school is proud of its outstanding facilities and the new Warwick Hall is one of the largest and most impressive performance venues in the region.

We aim to develop responsible, resilient and compassionate young men of character, equipped to succeed in a changing world.

High academic expectations and achievements, together with outstanding pastoral care and exceptional co-curricular provision make Warwick School a wonderful place to be educated.

Head Master's Welcome

Choosing a school for our children is one of the most important decisions we make as parents. We look for an environment where they will be happy, where they will be cared for, where they will have their interests ignited, where they will learn to recognise their responsibilities to others, and where they will face new and exciting challenges inside and outside the classroom.

At Warwick School we seek to develop the talents of each and every pupil, always guided by the school motto, Altiora Peto, ‘I seek higher things.’ We recognise that every boy is an individual, but we are firm in the belief that each one of them can achieve great things here.

The aim of a Warwick education is to send the boys who start here out into the world as confident, resilient, compassionate young men, equipped with the skills and qualities needed to flourish at university, in the workplace, and in their relationships with others.

This website provides a good insight into life at Warwick School. If you are not familiar with the school I hope it will prompt you to visit us, so you can see our stunning campus and, more importantly, talk to some of the boys and hear what they have to say about their school.

This website provides a good insight into life at Warwick School and I hope very much that you enjoy what you see here. You are most welcome to come and see for yourself and I can promise you and your sons a warm welcome to the school.
