About Us

Headmaster’s Welcome

A very warm welcome to the extraordinary realms of Bishopsgate School, where childhood thrives and triumphs amidst a tapestry of exceptional care. With an unwavering commitment to nurturing our girls and boys, we embrace their unique spirits and foster a vibrant environment that celebrates their journey. In our day school environment, we provide the perfect canvas for children to embrace the joys of childhood while embarking on a lifelong voyage of academic, artistic, sporting, and cultural discovery. Our holistic approach prepares them not only for their senior school years but also for a future brimming with endless possibilities.

Unleashing academic excellence

Academic excellence is a cornerstone of the Bishopsgate experience, as evidenced by our consistently outstanding results and remarkable scholarship achievements. Yet, at Bishopsgate, we go beyond the confines of traditional education. From Nursery through to Year 8, our devotion extends to shaping the whole child, empowering young minds to explore, to dream, and to think freely. By fostering an environment that cherishes their youthful essence, we unveil their passions, allowing each child to find their rhythm and cultivate timeless qualities of character.

An enchanting location

Nestled on the fringes of historic Windsor Great Park, but less than an hour’s reach of the bustling heartbeat of central London, Bishopsgate offers an enchanting setting spanning nearly 30 acres of Crown Estate green space. Here, our pupils revel in a myriad of competitive sports, discovering knowledge beyond the classroom walls and, most importantly, embracing the sheer joy of uninhibited outdoor exploration. We believe in the boundless value of granting children the freedom and space to grow, develop, and fearlessly learn from their mistakes within a secure environment.

Empowering future-ready champions of change

In an ever-changing world, we equip our children with the tools to navigate the uncharted territories of tomorrow. We embolden them to be adaptable, resilient, and forward-thinking while upholding the fundamental values of kindness and mutual respect. At Bishopsgate, we strive to exemplify the significance of meaningful human connections and the imperative of uplifting those less fortunate. My ultimate vision is to foster confident, curious, and compassionate individuals who possess a profound understanding of their own identity and aspirations.

The Bishopsgate difference

Whether you are new to the area or have already established your roots, I extend a heartfelt invitation for you to explore the captivating world of Bishopsgate. A visit to our remarkable school unveils the brilliance of our exceptional pupils, showcases the splendour of our campus, and introduces you to an outstanding team of staff. Prepare to be embraced by the warmth and hospitality of our community and where the Headmaster’s welcome awaits you.
