St Paul's School in London is one of great boarding schools for boys
located in capital of UK. St Paul's has excellent academic record and
Our teachers are experts in and passionate about their subjects, and
they venture well beyond the assessed syllabus. We wish to inspire our
pupils and to respond to their questioning and curiosity.
Boys are encouraged to develop their own passion for learning, to
develop a spirit of enquiry and to become increasingly self-directed in
their study. Their tutors assist them in learning how to balance their
academic interests and their other commitments.
Boys follow a curriculum to IGCSE/GCSE and then to AS and A Levels. We
believe that IGCSE offers breadth and good curriculum content, and that
of all the 16+ examination options A Levels provide the greatest
flexibility and choice for both boys and teachers.
We are proud of our pupils’ outstanding results in these exams, but the
real academic strength of St Paul’s is that discussion in the classroom
is not constrained by the examined curriculum. Examination success is
important, but for gifted boys it should be a by-product of their
broader intellectual development.
St Paul’s regularly topped the league tables published each August
before we co-founded a movement among leading schools to withhold
publication of our GCSE and A Level results at that time of the year. We
believe that league tables are too narrow a measure of a school’s
educational provision. The school publishes its results each year once
all re-marks are known. Our results, and the all-round education we
provide, are such that pupils go on to study at top universities in the
UK and North America.
