Welcome to Concord College, a truly international boarding and day school catering for 580 students from around 40 nations.

Beautiful 73 acre campus

580 students from 40 different nations

Nearly 1% of all students in England who achieve 3 A* at A Level did so at Concord (2023)

The college was founded in 1949 and has been educating students from around the world ever since. Its founders believed that learning together with students of different nationalities would build peace and understanding, something the modern school continues to promote.


Our 73 acre campus is set in beautiful English countryside, and encompasses beautiful green spaces, sports and music facilities and boarding houses as well as classrooms and state of the art laboratories.
Concord is dedicated to helping our students to flourish and achieve their (rather considerable) potential. We believe that to do this, they should be surrounded with a physical, emotional and intellectual environment that is ideal for their development.
