St. Paul's School
Preparing gifted boys for the future
St Paul’s selects only the most academically able boys who demonstrate an unrivalled intellectual curiosity, and turns out high profile alumni including politicians, professors and musicians, most recently Mumford and Sons. Over half the intake of pupils arrive from the linked junior school and places at both schools are highly selective. Achieving excellent results is more a by product of the breadth of education on offer than a goal in itself. Unsurprisingly, a high percentage of pupils head to Oxbridge and, increasingly, to the Ivy Leagues. The school is located on a 45 acre campus by the Thames in Barnes with modern facilities blending with the more historic ones, it also features sports facilities on site, not a given for London schools.
