Sedbergh School review

Founded in 1525, Sedbergh School is regarded as a sports-oriented school by parents in the UK. However, for Hong Kong parents, Sedbergh School stands out as one of the few all-boarding schools in the northern region. The school is nestled within a national park, boasting picturesque scenery. Sedbergh School takes full advantage of its natural surroundings, providing opportunities for students to immerse themselves in nature through activities such as marathons, cross-country biking, and participation in the Combined Cadet Force. This makes it particularly suitable for students who are energetic and active.

Sedbergh School Introduction

Uncommon Full-Boarding School

Approximately 70.9% of Sedbergh students are boarders, a high proportion compared to other schools. This allows international students to have more opportunities to live in an English-speaking environment and interact with other boarders, thereby enhancing their English proficiency. Since most students stay on campus during the weekends, the school arranges diverse activities and Saturday School academic courses for boarders to participate in. Furthermore, Sedbergh follows the House Dining system, where students and teachers from the same house dine together in the house's dining room, fostering stronger relationships and building a sense of community, even for international students studying abroad.

"9 STAR Talent Development Programme: Cultivating Top Talents from a Young Age

This specialised programme aims to nurture talented students from an early age. Unlike other schools that commonly offer similar elite programmes in Year 12, Sedbergh selects a group of academically excellent students from Year 9, providing them with knowledge beyond the classroom and cultivating their logical thinking, ability to articulate different perspectives, and problem-solving skills. Participants in the programme not only study subjects like English, Mathematics, Science, and Foreign Languages but also explore topics such as Philosophy, Study Skills, Epistemology, and Business Concepts. Students in the programme even have the opportunity to join the Oxbridge Preparation Programme in Year 10, where they visit the University of Cambridge and receive guidance from admissions tutors, gaining insights into the latest information on university applications. Graduates who have been part of this programme often proceed to top universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, and other high-ranking institutions, showcasing the programme's significant effectiveness.

A Tradition of Sports Excellence with a Rich Sporting History

With nearly 500 years of history, sports and athletics are deeply valued at Sedbergh School. Besides typical British sports like rugby, hockey, and rowing, cricket and air rifle shooting are also distinctive sporting programmes at the school. Cricket training has been offered since the 1910s, producing many players who have joined local or national teams, and some even pursue professional careers in cricket, even in Asian countries. Air rifle shooting is another year-round activity, with students participating in both indoor and outdoor shooting training and competing in South Africa and Canada. Additionally, since 1881, the school has organised an annual ten-kilometre cross-country run called the Wilson Run, a tradition that still continues, demonstrating the school's commitment to sports.

UK Education: Is Archaeology Becoming a New Favourite?

Archaeology: More than Just the Study of Artefacts When discussing archaeology, people often associate it with terms like "artefact conservation" and "history." However, Vincent, an education consultant, discovered differences in elective courses offered in the second and third years of archaeology programmes at various UK universities. He identified four main categories: Historical Focus: This is the most typical archaeology programme that combines history and social sciences with some scientific methods to understand the development of humanities, society, and economy in ancient Greece, ancient Rome, China, the Mediterranean, the UK, and other regions. "The historical periods studied mainly range from ancient history and mediaeval history to the 19th century. Represented by prestigious universities such as Nottingham and Liverpool." Social Sciences: Archaeology programmes in this category are a blend of archaeology, ancient history, sociology, economics, anthropology, philosophy, and museum studies. "It suits students who want to understand history and archaeology from multiple perspectives. Newcastle University is a representative in this category." Biological Approach: This category involves more scientific elements, particularly biology and palaeontology.
