About Us

Founded in 1896, Bishopsgate is a day school for boys and girls aged 3 – 13, and it still retains much of the atmosphere of the days when there were boarders.

We pride ourselves on being more than just a stepping stone towards senior school. Instead, we view Bishopsgate as the critical element of a well-rounded education. What we provide is self-contained, encompassing the entirety of an enriching educational journey.

Within our school estate, you will discover a tapestry of characterful buildings, almost limitless green space, and cutting-edge senior school learning environments.

Ever since our existence, spanning almost 130 years, dedicated and compassionate staff have remained committed to unlocking the full potential of every child, fostering an atmosphere of wonder and discovery. With a palpable sense of unity and an unwavering belief in the power of relationships, our community is a testament to the transformative magic that can be found within our walls.

We are dedicated to instilling in our pupils a profound awareness of the privilege they possess. It is essential that they grasp the realities of the broader modern world and embrace an active role within it. We nurture in them a genuine enthusiasm for immersing themselves in nature, equipping them with the necessary skills to actively engage in society.
