“Embley offers a warm, unstuffy environment for kids to utterly thrive in… Ideal for those looking for a well-rounded setting for their kids academically, but also creatively. The first impression many people will have of the school is how grand it all looks, but it is a very down-to-earth setting. From the staff to the pupils, there’s a welcoming and inclusive vibe to the school which in turn brings a lot of quirkiness and individuality to the place.”
“Despite the current tricky climate, you have delivered a comprehensive and varied education – the children have remained engaged and positive throughout and we know they are raring to come back to school as soon as it is possible. When I hear the teachers chatting away the children, they have made it feel so personal. We are confident our children will come out of lockdown with many happy memories and without missing out on any of their education.”

“Being part of the British Youth Sailing Team, I had high and low moments whilst trying to juggle school with my sailing commitments. However the support from the teachers has been outstanding and I couldn’t have asked for more. The Nightingale Lectures enable you to meet new people and be comfortable within your own skin. The Sixth Form at Embley has been amazing.”

“From the first day I arrived, I was made to feel at home. The teachers and students are really supportive and I find my daily personal tutor meetings really beneficial. I’ve had experiences that I would otherwise not have had back in Italy; the school has provided plenty of opportunities to take part in different study and enrichment activities which have helped me consider my future career options.”
