The School

This is is a co-educational 11-18, voluntary aided, school in the London Borough of Croydon, England and is part of the educational provision of the Anglican Diocese of Southwark and Croydon Council. It is a specialist Mathematics and Computing College where pupils are predominantly active in the Church of England, as selected by the Governors, with a minority of places available to members of other Christian denominations.

Several schools were founded by the same person who was an educational philanthropist, in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. In 1714, they founded a school for some "ten poor boys and ten poor girls" on a site which is now close to the heart of Croydon's shopping centre. Just over 300 years and three sites later, it is thought that the School is the oldest surviving mixed-gender school in the world. Due to the hostilities of the Second World War, the School was moved away from the dangers of the Blitz in South London and relocated to Craigmore Hall in the countryside near Crowborough, East Sussex, with pupils being evacuated and billeted with the local populace. After the War, the School returned to Croydon and Craigmore Hall returned to private use.

The School now occupies a site established almost 50 years ago in a leafy residential area of Croydon, just ten minutes' walk from East Croydon station. It caters for around 770 pupils, of whom approximately 270 are in the Sixth Form. Since 1959, the facilities have been augmented by the building of a Sixth Form Centre, an Art block, and Geography and Technology Centres. In its Ofsted report, from February 2008, the Lower School and Sixth Form were both described as being "Outstanding", receiving the highest inspection grades available.
