Shiplake College is situated in 45 acres of beautiful Oxfordshire countryside near Henley-on-Thames and under an hour from Heathrow Airport.
The school states its core values as ‘inclusive, individual and inspirational’ and sets out to provide an educational experience that will add value for every single pupil, whatever their talents and ambitions may be. In the classroom, each pupil’s best method of learning is identified and catered for. In small classes, pupils receive engaging and innovative teaching tailored to their needs. High achieving pupils are continually stretched while those requiring additional support can access it in a variety of ways.
It would be difficult to fall through the net here as monitoring is built into all stages and aspects of life. There is plenty of sport with excellent facilities including an AstroTurf, sports hall and gym. The college is adjacent to the River Thames and there is a fantastic rowing programme. Shiplake offers CCF in Army, Navy and RAF.
