Academic

At Warwick it is our aim to maximise every pupil’s academic potential. While our curriculum is broad and encompassing of a full range subjects and our examinations results consistently place us among the leading boys’ schools in the country, we recognise that to be successful requires our pupils to develop as learners.

To facilitate their learning, at whatever stage of their Warwick School career, all pupils are encouraged to adopt the school’s learning values. These values are more than just a set of words. They represent a learning philosophy that if followed, will not only lead to academic success at school but also provide the foundations for success at university and the wider world.

For all ages, class sizes are small. On average around 22 boys up to Sixth Form and smaller still, around 10 per subject group in the Sixth Form. The education is provided by employing the highest quality staff, alongside outstanding facilities and resources.

The curriculum is designed to provide an extensive range of subject options and many different learning experiences and is consistently updated. Conferences, visits, university links and extensive use of the library and ICT facilities all extend educational horizons.

The vast majority of our boys go on to elite universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. This year (Jan 18) we have had 17 boys get offers for Oxford or Cambridge, our highest number for thirty years.
