Information about the school

Tonbridge School is one of the leading boys' boarding schools in the country and is highly respected internationally.

Tonbridge School aims to provide a caring and enlightened environment in which the talents of each individual flourish. We encourage boys to be creative, tolerant and to strive for academic, sporting and cultural excellence. Respect for tradition and an openness to innovation are equally valued. A well-established house system at the heart of the school fosters a strong sense of belonging. Tonbridge seeks to celebrate its distinctive mixture of boarders and day boys; this helps to create a unique broadening and deepening of opportunity. We want boys to enjoy their time here, but also to be made aware of their social and moral responsibilities. Tonbridgians should enter into the adult world with the knowledge and self-belief to fulfil their own potential and, in many cases, to become leaders in their chosen field. Equally, we hope to foster a life-long empathy for the needs and views of others: in the words of the great novelist and Old Tonbridgian, E.M. Forster: 'Only Connect'.

The School occupies an extensive and impressive site of over 150 acres. With a distinctive mix of boarders and day boys, it has around 780 pupils: approximately 60% occupy the seven boarding houses, with the remainder being attached to one of the five day houses.

State-of-the-art facilities include the Vere Hodge Arts and Technology Centre, the E.M. Forster Theatre and the Smythe Library. The Tonbridge School Centre offers an outstanding range of leisure and sporting opportunities for students, staff and the public, while the new £20million Science Centre, opening in early 2019, will transform teaching and learning in that area.

With a reputation for excellence in all that it does, Tonbridge School aims to recruit, retain and develop the best and most committed teaching and support staff.

Our School and all its personnel are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children. This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure Application to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
