Tonbridge School has once again received a resounding seal of approval in the Sunday Times annual guide

Tonbridge proved its popularity in the latest Sunday Times ‘Parent Power’ Schools Guide, being ranked as the sixth best independent school nationally, and the highest placed boarding school in the country. In the south-east rankings, Tonbridge was placed second overall and named as the highest ranked boys’ school.

This is the 31st annual edition of the Guide, which ranks both independent and state schools and is closely watched by both parents and schools. This year, for the first time, the guide looked beyond academic results to also consider elements such as co-curricular and pastoral approach and commitment to scholarships and bursaries.

Speaking about the ranking, Tonbridge Headmaster James Priory said: “We are delighted to once more be placed among the very best schools in the country and to be recognised as the leading boarding school. These results are also an affirmation of Tonbridge as a highly successful boys’ school”. 

He added: “While our Parent Power position is something for all at Tonbridge to be proud of, I believe that what counts most is the outstanding, all-round education we provide, which extends boys’ learning experiences far beyond the classroom”.
