SHIPLAKE College is a thriving boarding and day school for boys aged 11 to 18 and girls aged 16 to 18.

Overlooking the River Thames, a short distance upstream of the famous Henley Royal Regatta course, students enjoy an inspirational 45-acre site.

The stunning grounds are equipped with fantastic modern facilities, including a contemporary “thinking space”, multi-purpose lecture theatre and the school’s very own boathouse.

Shiplake provides a friendly, supportive environment to bring out the best in each and every pupil.

Renowned for outstanding pastoral care and personal development, the college welcomes pupils with a variety of skills and talents.

The Shiplake education is tailored to the individual through engaging and inspirational teaching, delivered in small classes where teachers understand each pupil’s most effective learning methods.

With a greater focus on academic rigour in recent years, it is no surprise that the college continues to achieve a year-on-year improvement in examination results.

Only last month, Shiplake leavers achieved a record number of A*s and A grades at A-level, helping to secure places at a variety of leading institutions, including Oxbridge, Russell Group and Ivy League universities.

In addition to a strong academic foundation, the college offers excellent co-curricular opportunities.

Tuesday and Friday afternoons are reserved for a diverse array of clubs and societies, including a comprehensive outdoor education programme.

Academic lessons previously held on Saturdays have moved to within a five-day working week.

Sport will take place on Saturday mornings, permitting additional family time and a break from academic lessons. A full Independent Schools Inspectorate inspection this year judged Shiplake as “excellent” — the highest accolade — across all nine inspection categories.

Commendation of this magnitude is rare in education, placing Shiplake amongst the leading schools in the country.

Prospective families are encouraged to arrange an individual visit or attend an upcoming open morning.
