At Concord we set very high academic standards. Students arrive here and want to do their best. They work incredibly hard to achieve not only their hopes and dreams, but the hopes and dreams of their families. Together the culture we create is one of success. Our results are remarkable: Concord students attend all the top universities. Whilst we recognise that life is not just about academic brilliance and there is a rich and varied programme of enrichment activities, academic progress is at the heart of everyday life at Concord.
Concord is one of the highest achieving boarding schools in the UK. Teaching and learning are given the highest value and students are tested regularly to monitor their progress. Strengths are developed and guidance is given to ensure that students are prepared for the next stage of their education.
