A Truly Co-Ed Environment

Supporting social harmony and a balanced education 

At Ardingly College we firmly believe that co-education is a positive experience, with boys and girls truly co-existing equally in everything we do. They come together in many school activities such as entrepreneurial business programmes, science projects and debating, and ultimately live in the Upper Sixth form together in one united house. Prep School celebrates integration in every academic class, tutor group and many pastoral activities.

Encouraging and celebrating diversity is a strength of Ardingly College and with the inclusion of international students in the Senior School makes for a more diverse and real life world community. Students develop tolerance, cooperation and compassion. They form strong friendship groups and discuss personal challenges and feelings; they come to understand the needs of others which encourages them to build self-reflection, respect and empathy.
