Truly Co-educational

At Ardingly College we were one of the first British public schools to accept girls and we recently celebrated 50 years of girls at Ardingly, by welcoming back some of our pioneering earliest female students. Read More.

Ardingly is now a truly co-educational school with an almost equal split of girls and boys across every year group. We firmly believe that co-education is a positive experience for everyone and by far the best preparation for the real world. 

All students learn in a fully co-educational environment and undertake many co-curricular activities in mixed groups. While they are split into girls’ and boys’ Houses from Years 9 to 12, we have numerous inter-House activities and socials where girls and boys come together. Finally, in the Upper Sixth, all girls and boys (and day and boarding pupils) all live together in our fantastic purpose built co-educational Godwin House, which provides a helpful transition into university living.
