The Town of Stamford
The Schools occupy three sites close to the centre of Stamford, a market town of outstanding architectural beauty set in the heart of England. The Schools have been established in Stamford since 1532, undergoing many changes but consistently providing a first-class education for their children. Today the Schools remain interwoven with Stamford life, to which our students, teachers and parents contribute greatly.
Stamford was recently named in the Sunday Telegraph as one of ‘Britain’s Top 20 Places to Raise a Family’, and in 2013 was given the accolade of being ‘The Best Place to Live in Britain’ by the Sunday Times.
Stamford is privileged to be surrounded by beautiful countryside and quintessentially English villages, offering scenic country walks and places to enjoy outdoor pursuits, such as nearby Rutland Water. Among other local historical sites, Stamford shares a border with the magnificent Burghley House Estate, which hosts the annual Burghley Horse Trials; one of the most prestigious national equestrian events.
Stamford is located approximately 14 miles from Peterborough and has excellent road (A1 North/South; A43/A14 West) and rail links (East Coast mainline from Peterborough) which enable many larger centres, including London, to be reached in just over an hour.
