Head Master's Welcome
    In looking for a school, every parent seeks – in addition to high academic standards and a vibrant programme of activities – a place where their child can belong. At Worth, the ideals of the family run through everything we do: we celebrate achievement with joy; we value listening and tolerance; we see the importance of each and every person.

    Worth is a place where we seek to uncover and ignite children's passions and talents. The path a life takes often begins at school, and this is why we do not just provide education, we offer learning with heart and soul, and this gives Worth a difference of kind that sets us apart.

    Situated in 500 acres of beautiful Sussex countryside, and within easy reach of London and Gatwick, Worth is a leading co-educational, Catholic boarding and day school. I invite you to visit us and see how the warmth of the Worth community allows boys and girls to thrive within the classroom, on the sports field, in the creative arts, and within their friendships. You will meet pupils nurtured by both the richness of Benedictine tradition, and the best that modern education has to offer.

    You will see confident, happy children who are proud to show you their school.

    I look forward to welcoming you.

    Stuart McPherson, MA
    Head Master

    Our Benedictine Ethos

    The Rule of St Benedict was written some 1,500 years ago for religious communities in an age very different from what we know today. Yet the wisdom of The Rule remains a clear and practical guide for modern day life and the complexities of 21st century living. Within our Benedictine ethos we discover how to structure community living which enables the individual to find personal strength, success and contentment whilst also establishing a genuinely supportive environment.

    At Worth we recognise that everyone in our community is on a personal spiritual journey. Our experiences and relationships can be transformed on a daily basis by the power of God’s infinite love and by our response to that love. Our Benedictine tradition encourages young people to go on a journey of self-awareness and understanding. It inspires them to consider by thought, action and prayer, to know themselves and their potential, whilst learning how to live with virtue and integrity. Their journey is not a solitary path but one shared and supported by the entire community.
