Uppingham School recruits approximately 200 new pupils each year. The majority of these join us at age 13 when there is space to accommodate 90 boys and 60 girls in the Fourth Form. In addition to this approximately 30 girls and 15-20 boys also join at Sixth Form level.
As a full boarding school, only a few of these pupils are day children; typically Uppingham has only 10 – 20 pupils at any one time.
We are often asked what quality we look for in a person who might come to Uppingham. The answer is enthusiasm! Pupils who attend need to be prepared to be involved in the all round nature of the School, prepared to engage with the wide array of activities and opportunities that makes the School distinctive. At the same time pupils need to demonstrate appropriate intellectual ability and independence that will allow them to flourish in the classroom as well. Pupils come from a wide range of schools and backgrounds and typically there will be in excess of 80 schools represented in the 150 pupils who join the School in the Fourth Form. The range of pupils includes families from abroad and about 15% of our pupil body may not have English as their first language; a further 4% are made up of British expatriate families. International admissions are welcomed and can be made directly to the School.
Candidate families applying from mainland China should contact our representatives in China, UK Boarding Schools Admissions Service (所有中国大陆的申请者请联系我们官方代表), in the first instance.

Existing family connections with the School are favourably considered, but each applicant must independently demonstrate the academic and social criteria explored by the School’s tests against others competing for a place. About 10% of the current pupil body are made up of the children of OUs.
