Bold & Loyal

Wycliffe Independent School is the perfect blend of place and culture where boys and girls develop and flourish from the Nursery Class through to Year 13 offering day, flexi and full boarding. Our diverse community, exceptional facilities and individualised learning approach allow all our pupils to thrive while we pride ourselves on offering excellent pastoral care so each and every individual is supported and cared for. We combine academic learning with a wide range of extra-curricular activities; encouraging every child to try something new and reach their full potential. This in turn develops the person as a whole, inside and outside of the classroom. We inspire and educate every individual boy or girl – this is not just an acceptance of difference, but an encouragement to be individual. 

I believe it to be no small part of the mission of this school to cherish its individuality, its liberty to experiment, and even its eccentricities. Most people and most schools are afraid to be original… Let us be pioneers and experimenters…

W.A. Sibly, Second Headmaster of Wycliffe (1912-1947)
