“Founded in 1576, Sutton Valence is one of the oldest schools in the country and we are proud of our history, our traditions and our independence.
Today, pupils educated at Sutton Valence have access to outstanding facilities, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. We create a vibrant and safe environment where all have the chance to grow into confident and responsible members of the community. One of our greatest strengths is the relationships we foster between staff, pupils and parents. We set the highest expectations and standards in all that we do and reward effort as well as achievement.”
Sutton Valence School is a co-educational independent day school for pupils aged 3 to 18, with boarding from 11 to 18.
“As well as the academic education – which delivers excellent results across a full spectrum of abilities – there is every opportunity and encouragement for the students to become involved in a very dynamic and wide-ranging co-curricular line-up.”
“The school understands our children as individuals; and, as an institution, has the necessary financial strength, cultural values and, most importantly, a coherent and effective leadership, dedicated teaching staff of a very high standard and strong governance support to foster our children’s development into self-confident adults, who can achieve their best in life.”
“My biggest achievement at SV is securing a solid set of GCSE and A Level grades to set me up for the best start in life. I have never been academic, but the way Sutton Valence assists their students to work to their best ability has meant I am incredibly proud of the results I have achieved.”

“It has made me more organised, and has allowed me to establish a good balance between work and sport. The school has inspired me to succeed and has motivated me to try my hardest in whatever I do”

“The sense of community makes it feel as though you are part of a safe but exciting family. Nowhere looks out for you like Sutton Valence School does”
