About Churcher's College
Churcher’s College is an independent, coeducational, HMC day school, which offers a distinctive education to pupils from the age of 4 to 18. Currently there are 874 pupils in the Senior School (11-18) and, on its own 14 acre site, 231 pupils in the Junior School (4-11). As you would expect, our aim is to educate and prepare young people in order that they may participate successfully and responsibly in society. We aim to provide a high standard of education for all pupils based upon traditional values and academic standards, personal discipline and the development of self-confidence. This is accomplished
within a caring environment, on an open site with the beautiful South Downs as a backdrop and a delightfully positive balance between academic studies and enterprise and adventure outside the classroom.
Churcher’s College is a dynamic and innovative place to work; academically strong with 81% A and B grades at A level and 61% A* and A grades at GCSE in 2015. The academic side of school life is complemented with a very strong co-curricular programme. With up to 22 sports teams representing the school in any given term and unbeaten seasons, sport has strength in numbers as well as ability. Music and drama also flourish with over half of the children involved in individual music lessons, highly accomplished ensembles, and children involved in drama at all ages and all places including major West End productions. With a voluntary after school CCF of 200, 200 also involved in Duke of Edinburgh and extensive opportunities on major, annual, worldwide, adventurous expeditions, the range and eclectic nature of the activities outside the classroom is a significant bonus to life at Churcher’s not only for the students but staff as well. The school has a long history and is a prominent establishment in the beautiful market town of Petersfield. Churcher’s College was founded in 1722 under the terms of the will made by Richard Churcher, a local philanthropist.
The terms of that will instructed that 9 or 10 local boys were to be fed, clothed and cared for in addition to receiving free education which was to include English, Mathematics and Navigation. Upon leaving the College, boys were to be apprenticed into the East India Company.
