Limehouse School Crest

Top 20 UK Boarding School

Lime House School is committed to providing a rigorous academic and intellectual education which will challenge and engage pupils, whatever their starting point or ability.

Our broad curriculum provides a framework for continuity and progression with the aim of fostering a life-long love of learning for its own sake as well as providing every young person with a secure foundation on which to continue into Higher Education and into the career of their choice. Every Lime House student has a Personal Development Tutor with whom they meet regularly to discuss both academic progress and general welfare and development.

Our results speak for themselves. For two years running Lime House has been a Top 20 School in the best-schools co-educational boarding school league table, based on our A level results. This puts the school ahead of many far more famous schools.  58% of all A Levels taken were awarded A* or A grades, a remarkable achievement for such a small school. Lime House students go on to study at many of the UK’s most prestigious universities.

In the past three years our pupils have gained places at Cambridge to study Natural Sciences, Oxford to read Geography, Imperial for Engineering and UCL for Economics and Management. These are just a few examples; other Lime House students have progressed to a range of top universities in the UK and abroad to study subjects as diverse as Art and Design and Forensic Computing. We are extremely proud of our students and of the way a Lime House education prepares them for success in so many different fields.
