Welcome to Tonbridge School

James Priory, Headmaster of Tonbridge School

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

Our boys 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.  

A superb House system at the heart of the School ensures that everyone, whether a boarder or a day boy, feels fully at home and well supported. Our beautiful and historic campus provides space in which to think, breathe and grow. 

Opportunities abound, thanks not only to outstanding facilities and an extraordinary range of activities, but also to the dedication of our staff, who are committed to their students’ learning and growth both within and beyond the classroom.

Tonbridge is a school which celebrates the life of the mind, but which also enjoys putting knowledge into action. We are proud of our community partnerships both here and overseas, and of our boys’ willingness to take the lead and serve. 

Tonbridge’s mission encourages creativity, confidence and compassion. In the words of the great novelist and Old Tonbridgian, E. M. Forster: ‘Only Connect’. We are committed not only to providing a genuinely transformative education, but also to continuing to widen access, so that as many boys as possible can benefit from the experience that Tonbridge offers.
